Cbc came back with high platelets (610, 000) how concerning is this? Dr wants to retest in month. Is that ok? Other results from CBC were normal.
Maybe: There are several reasons that platelets may be high. Iron deficiency, bleeding (even a heavy period), inflammation, and a myeloproliferativeve disorder are among the more common. It's probably worth confirming that the level is high with another blood count before further evaluating. No need for a whole month to go by before repeating. ...Read more

Blood count: It appears that your white cell count remains mildly elevated with an increased % of neutrophils. I would assume an investigation of your blood for infection has likely already been performed if this is over a year old? Chronic infections can cause this, as can abnormality of the bone marrow. A consultation with a hematologist is a reasonable next step. ...Read more

I have nausea, lightedness and body weakness. CBC came back with Normal WBC High platelets High RBC Low MCV Low MCH High RDW?
Discuss it: You didn't give the values, but if they're not way out-of-range, I'd check you for thalassemia minor. If you have it, it's worth knowing as marrying another person with it can be a disaster for your children. I can't explain the high platelets, though the common cause is coexisting iron deficiency which can complicate this stuff. Pure iron deficiency might show low RBC instead. ...Read more
