i am currently undergoing tests for cel based on results from other tests. Is there any connection between eosinophillic esophogitis w/ increased eosinophils (>18) and decreased neutrophils(<36)and increased lymphocytes and CEL?
Eosinophilic esophagitis is attributed to food allergy,with the eosinophils being deployed as part of the allergic reaction. CEL (chronic eosinophilic leukemia) is an abnormal proliferation of the eosinophils outside of allergic reactions. If the CEL is proven, it is likely that the esophagitis may not be allergic in nature but may be an infection due to a lowered resistance (decreased neutrophils).
