Eosinophilia can occur due to allergies, parasitic infection, medication side-effects, and some other conditions. Any of these conditions can increase thirst. Did they check your electrolytes (potassium, sodium, etc.)? Any abnormalities there? Any recent medication and/or supplement changes?

Take care,

Sodium and postassium are in normal range.. the only other thing out of range is Eos... I added samento and the 2 weeks before the test up until the day before, I had been on malarone... (switched from mepron)..The day before the test, I switched back to mepron because of bad headaches

Elevated BUN can be a sign that your body is not hydrated well, makes sense where you are always thirsty. Be careful drinking TOO much water as your electrolytes can get out of balance.  D

Babesia, Lyme, and probably other coinfections can cause elevated eos, I wonder if you're herxing...or having a flareup...due to the medication change and samento...
