My six month baby had a platelet count 450thou/ul, we repeated CBC after a month and got the answer 485thou/ul, didn't have cold, should we worry?
High platelet count: No concern. This much increase could be reactive and there are several sub clinical infections (viral or otherwise) which can contribute.See 1 more doctor answer
Not by much: Platelet apheresis returns almost all of the non-platelet blood components to you, so WBC and RBC levels usually do not change at all. Platelet count may drop briefly, but our bodies rapidly manufacture them, since it does not know if you donated them or if you sustained an injury that used them, it can adjust level within a few hours.
Need actual results?: There is more information on a CBC than you provided. What was the diff? Was a peripheral smear examined and what were the results if yes? Do you have any symptoms? Lab tests need to be interpreted in the total clinical context and it is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion on fragments of information.
It depends on your H: Giant platelets means there is a larger proportion of young (freshly made) platelets. It is a finding sometimes seen in people who have low platelet counts due to conditions like ITP. Do you have any health problems such as your platelet count? Please give us this bit of information in order for us to be able to help you with your question.
Likely not: Typically, a normal platelet count in a healthy individual is between 150, 000 and 450, 000. Oftentimes, bloodwork results will list the actual number in the hundreds (i.e. 361 like your case), implying a result of 361, 000. However to confirm, I would review the results with the ordering physician.See 7 more doctor answers
I have a CBC w/diff done. Everything normal. Platelets were 429.should I worry about that? Could that mean leukemia?
Wait to worry: You need to tell us your medical history such as why did you have your blood tested in the first place? Your platelet count is slightly high but it is within a safe range at present. If it rises further to a level above 5, 00, 000, you will need to have a blood specialist (Hematologist's)opinion and further testing to find the cause.
My CBC results are all normal except my platelet count is always in the 400's. My dr is not concerned. Should I be worried?
No: I would just monitor it. If the count rises you could have essential thrombocytosis with too many platelets and blood can get too thick and clot more easily. This is usually treated with prescription medication if the count gets high enough and you can take a baby aspirin to make the platelets less sticky.
Platelets are normal at 331 but I get Petechiae from scratching and notice more on my body after hot shower. Scared! Am I okay? Normal cbc
Platelet function: What medications do you use? Please include any pain medications. Thank you very much.
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.
Platelets have been a mildly low over the past 4 months - typically between 119 and 137. (norm 140+). Dr is sending me to hemotologist. All other components of CBC w/diff normal. Should I be concerned?
Heme: Difficult to answer. Alcohol can lower plts so stop drinking. Sometimes certain illnesses can cause low plts such as idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura and the hematologist can help with this. Certain medications can cause low plts as well. Best bet not to worry as your plts are only midly low.See 1 more doctor answer
Check Fe/TIBC: Lab reference ranges are set to that a few percent of healthies fall outside on either end. RDW does tend to rise as the body becomes depleted of iron, before anemia develops. If this could be you (frequent blood donor, heavy periods, vegetarian), it may be a red flag. Lowish iron also drives platelets up. Your physician may want to check you for this.

Probably not: Depending on the laboratory, the range of a normal platelet count can vary. However, under 400, 000 is generally normal and if your other counts were fine, your platelet count appears to be normal as well.
Is it normal to have a followup CBC test after original CBC shows high RBC and high platelet counts?
Not abnormal: It is reasonable to want to confirm the lab results. How high were the counts?
My last few CBC test this year my MVP has been 7 and now my platelets are over 400 (they've been btwn 250-341) is this odd?
Iron deficiency?: A high platelet count is one of the markers for iron deficiency. Menstrual blood loss is a common cause of iron deficiency in women. Try taking oral iron supplement and multivitamins for about 6 months and then repeat the test. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless. Practice safe sex.
