Does anyone have hyper eosinophilla ? Is a bone marrow biopsy necessary for further treatment?

Hi @zenk, you'll notice that I moved your message to this existing discussion about Hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES) so that you can meet @vkartsona. According to Mayo Clinic https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/hypereosinophilic-syndrome/diagnosis-treatment/drc-20352856 a bone marrow biopsy is not part of the first line of testing for a diagnosis or to develop a treatment. First they need to find out the cause. It is genetic or associated with a cancer, infection or other health problem(s).

Has the cause already been determined through tests, such as blood tests, allergy tests, stool tests or genetic testing?
