Blood Test Platelet Count Normal Range
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 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
Please help! High platelet count, high luehocytes, no anemia, normal luekemia blood test. Very weak, tired a lot. Bruise easily. Very inflamed chest.?
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
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
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
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
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
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
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

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.

Got a blood test today. My blood counts are normal but my platelets are at 404. Standard range for my Dr is 140-400. Is this bad? I'm nervous.
My Platelet count is 116 while the normal range is 140-200. My Red Blood Count is 5.31 and normal range is 3.8 - 5.10. What does all this mean??
Blood tests: There are a few diseases that leap out from blood tests. Most of the time, however, blood tests don't tell the doctor much on their own. These results fall into the second group, not very specific. Would review with your internist with more history and physical details. Best of luck. ...Read more

What does it mean to have a low blood platelet count of 99? I recently got over acute bronchitis and took Bactrim. I know the normal range is 150
Fluctuating low platelet count appeared in what type of blood cancer? It can get as low as 29000 then going back to normal range then drop again.
If my red & white blood cells and platelet count from a recent lab test for anemia are normal and within range, can I safely say I do not have HIV?
A little high: Although standards vary from lab to lab, the numbers you cite are a little above average in most labs. As in all lab results, yours should be closely correlated with your history and physical exam before drawing any specific conclusions. For example, simple dehydration can elevate both platelets and wbc. ...Read more
Just did Complete Blood Test... Everything normal except RBC - 6.5 M/uL, MCV - 70.7fl, MCH 22.3pg and Platelets 105K/uL. Please why could the platelet?
Lots of stuff: I suspect you have beta thalassemia minor and this is good to know in case you plan to marry someone else who has it too. The platelets are a wee bit low and this isn't from "thal minor"; and there can be lots of different causes; you're in no danger from it, but I suggest it get repeated sometime soon. ...Read more
