Blood Test High Platelet Count
Many things.: High platelets can occur with bleeding, iron deficiency and inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis. They can be high due to a blood disorder (myeloproliferative neoplasia). Platelets also can be elevated in response to serious illnesses. The cause should be investigated, found and if possible treated. ...Read more
Been very ill. Some of my blood test came back still waiting on many. Platelet count of 679, white blood count high 14, rdw 23, neutrophilid 11?
High WBC count.: In what you’ve provided here, your WBC count is high, which in and of itself could suggest infection or inflammation. The platelet count is likewise high, but this could be just reactive (the platelet count is an acute phase reactant) or it could mean that the bone marrow is generally proliferative. Not enough here to really. Hazard a guess. ...Read more

I took a blood test when my ulcerative colitis flared up. My ast/alt level was about 65 and my platelet count was high. Is it high bc of the flare?
How high: Was your platelet count? If it is less than 1 million, it should not become an excessive clotting problem. Platelet counts that are slightly elevated are common in inflammatory conditions, such as uc flare up. Ast and alt levels are also affected by many things, but in this range it is usually self limited. Have these studies checked again in a few weeks at your GI doctor's office. ...Read more
Please help! High platelet count, high luehocytes, no anemia, normal luekemia blood test. Very weak, tired a lot. Bruise easily. Very inflamed chest.?
My last blood test showed my platelet count as 122K (just gotten over a cold a few days prior). Since normal range is 140-400K, should I be concerned?
No: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, your result is not a cause for concern. Your doctor can repeat the test in a few months. ...Read more
I was having fever for past one month now my temperature is normal but my blood test says that my platelet count is 75000. Why is it saw?
I did a blood test and my platelet count turned out to be 724*10^9/l I have iron hgb 110g/l 16ug/dl is that dangerous and how to lower the platelet co?
I am not sure: Which numbers go with what in your question. A HGB of 11 g/dl would be low for a male. Iron deficiency is also associated with thrombocytosis, but would be an usual diagnosis in a young male. Need more info here. ...Read more
Lowers platelets: Checked into this from different sources and found that it lowers platelets and depresses bone marrow thereby decreasing all components of the blood including white cell counts. Advil (ibuprofen) also does the same, if u r taking it. Adverse reactions usually occurs only if u take these medications for long or too frequently. One or two doses to prevent motion sickness should be safe. ...Read more
What to do if I had a blood test my red blood cell is 4.83 and platelet count 421 is that dangerous?
Not dangerous: Your platelet count is slightly high, normal count being 150-350, 000. Red blood is best measured with hemoglobin level. Although your platelet count right now is of no serious medical concern, it may be worth rechecking it once more in one month and see if it drops below 400, 000. Anything over 450, 000 would need further attention and medical examination by a hematologist. ...Read more
Had a blood test done, and the doc said he had a low blood platelet count and will need to be retested. Is that something serious?
Depends how: Low and if you have any other abnormalities in your blood work. Low platelets can cause delay in blood clotting. If you are not having any problems with bleeding, I would not worry too much. Follow your doctor's advice and have re-test first before you get too worried. Lab errors do occur. Isolated finding of low platelets could mean itp, a treatable disease. ...Read more
Does a routine psa blood test also tell you your platelet count? I just want to know if the low platelet count also shows up on a psa blood test
No, . ..: Testing PSA is a biochemical procedure and testing platelet count is a counting procedures; so the blood specimens for both are collected & tested in different ways. So, they cannot be done with the same specimen. If you like to know more about the clinical significance of PSA, go to http://www. Formefirst. Com/FreeInfoProstate. Html. ...Read more
I had a blood test done a while ago and I had a normal platelet count but a low mpv (6.3) and the only symptom I have is foamy urine. What could this?
Test results: I doubt there is a connection between low platelet volume and your foamy urine. Did they check your urine itself? Or check your kidney function? Do you feel well? Any test can give falsely abnormal results, or results that are not in the normal range, but it doesn't really matter as long as you feel well. If you are well, don't worry. If worried, as to repeat the test, check the urine and kidneys. ...Read more
Had blood test, as have dizzy spells, and feel like going to pass out, platelet count 122, doctor referred me to see a cardiologist, what could problem be?
See below: Dizziness could result of being dehydrated, hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), anemia. The cardiologist is a good referral to rule out mitral valve prolapse, which can cause dizzy spells and palpitations. Your platelet count is a slightly low; however, if you are not having increased bruising/bleeding and you are not anemic, just repeat it in 6 months-year. Your 'normal' plt count may be this level ...Read more
My blood test show RBC count 3.53, WBC 9.2, HEMOGLOBIN WB 11.2, HEMATOCRIT WB 33.7, PLATELET COUNT 206. Am I iron deficient? I'm a 56 y/o woman.
Yes it is possible b:
You have mild anemia (Hb of 11.2 Gm, normal being >12 Gms). To find the cause, you have to do additional tests like check your blood iron levels and also check for any excessive bleeding or blood loss from an internal organ. This will require a visit with a PCP.
Also send us your MCV....this can give us a clue towards iron deficiency. ...Read more
Rbc count, WBC count, platelet count, RBC index, WBC differential count, hb, hct all blood test normal. Facing bleeding gum problem recently. Opinion?
Not blood's fault: If CBC normal as you say, more likely due to a change in the oral environment/ dental hygiene. Consider this to see if any change in brush/floss frequency or duration, change in tobacco or alcohol product use, or change in life stressors. In the interim, be sure you are brushing twice daily and flossing daily--this should stop bleeding--if not, consult dentist for exam and advice. ...Read more
I just had a complete CBC blood test. If there was HIV infection would it show in my blood count/platelets?
Left/upper rib cage pain for 6 weeks, rib cage sticks out. Any ideas? Docs say posture/anxiety related. Blood test shows low platlet count. X-ray soon
My 5 year old nephew's blood report says hemoglobin-7, tacked cell volume-23%, WBC count- 11500, platelet count-179000, esr-07.Is it a thalassemia?

In a recent blood test my platelet distribution width is at a high of 41.7. What are its implications? Is this immidiate threat to my health?
It means nothing: This varies tremendously from person to person for no reason whatever. Reference ranges are set so that several percent of healthies fall outside on either end. It's of considerable interest if you have certain other blood problems, and I'll assume you don't. Be thankful for good health. ...Read more
Thrombocytosis: The most common cause of an elevated platelet count is iron deficiency anemia. Some people are born with thrombocytosis. Other causes include chronic infection or inflammation, metastatic cancer, and essential thrombocythemia, a bone marrow disorder which causes excessive production of platelets. For the correct diagnosis and treatment, you will need to see a hematologist. ...Read more
If a blood test reveals that something is borderline high, does that mean something is unhealthy about you? For example: mean platelet volume = 13.0.
Nope: Normal ranges for lab tests are calculated to represent the range within which a given result will be in 95% of healthy people. That means 5% of ALL lab results are outside the normal range even when nothing is wrong at all. So let's take a test panel like a complete blood count where there are 10+ tests bundled together: at least 1 will usually be "abnormal" or "borderline" for anyone. ...Read more
Blood test report: homocysteine level high/ blood platelets low/ bilirubin high. What could be wrong?
Big picture please: As a lab doctor, this means nothing in isolation. I appreciate your caring & this is no familiar pattern. Is the person clinically healthy? How off are the values? Vegetarians and junk-fooders are equally at risk for high homocysteine as are folks with genetic disease. Bilirubin -- gilbert's? Platelets -- gin and tonic? This isn't something to discuss in a 400-character text thx 4 understanding. ...Read more
I did blood test, everything normal but platelets slight high 481, it is serious? Do not have any indications. Just use ZOLOFT (sertraline) for Anxiety since 8 year
It is not bad: I think your blood is fine. Platelets tend to fluctuate by 50 to 100 thousand if checked a few months apart. As long as they are remaining below 500, 000, you do not need to worry about them unless you notice changes in other blood cells too. You can get a repeat CBC done in a few months, just to be sure. ...Read more
My last CBC blood test indicated RDW of 16.2, MCV 82, MCH 27.5, MCHC, 33.4 and platelets 390. The only high readings were the RDW and platelets.?
I have taken a blood test and my results came back elevated WBC at 12.6 and platelets 666... Should I be concerned? Aside from that I have no symptom
Follow it: Your physician will probably want to keep an eye on this in case this actually is essential thrombocythemia, a mild chronic illness that's generally easily managed, rather than just a blip. Best wishes. ...Read more

What does it mean if my recent blood test results show that I have a high platelet and white blood cell count?
See a doctor: This can be one of several things. If you are otherwise completely healthy, it may indicate a bone marrow disease called polycythemia vera. If you have medical conditions or are on certain medications, it can indicate inflammation or infection. Please see your doctor or a hematologist to help sort this out. ...Read more
