and the number of eosinophil was high at 0.3 where normal is 0 to 0.20
and i would like to know if this needs further evaluation and what kind thank you for any information on this

If this child is taking therapy for nephropathy, it may lower his neutrophil count.
Also, an elevated esinophil count may be seen with nephropathy.
I suggest you just follow up these values regularly.

This child is not receiving any therpy and his kidney function is monitored every 6 months

Then I would suggest a follow-up CBC after 1 week, provided there is no infection.
