High eosinophil count 14%

Patient : Dear Sir, three days ago I had my blood count and the number of my white blood cells was 9,3 (the maximum is 10), but what worries me is that the number of my eosinophils was much above the range: it was 1,26 (the range: 0,04 — 0,40). In percentage it is 14 % (the range: 0 — 5). I would also like to add that the rest of my blood results were perfect, nothing over the range. I am only concerned about my eosinophilia, should I be worried about it in a situation when everything else in my blood work is ok? Also, I suffer from ulcerstive colitis but I am in full remission. Thank you so much for taking your time reading it and I would greatly appreciate your reply, best regards, Cosima
