I got blood work done for my platelets under flag it says 440 under results and high under flagmeans?
Depends on patient: Depending on what symptoms, diseases, and other features a patient has, a lab value can have different meanings. The "high" limit on platelets is often "400". That means about 98% of normal people will be 400 or less, and about 2% of normal people will be over 400. The farther above 400, the more likely the result means a problem. One can visit his doctor and ask what his result means for him. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Husband, 35, blood work showed low platelets at 109, low lymp percent at 10, & high monocytes. his dr dismissed this as viral. should we get 2nd opin?
He's fine: Just follow this. Reference ranges are set so that several percent of healthies fall a little bit outside on either end. With platelets at 109, he can have neurosurgery and not worry. Percentages of white cells are meaningless apart from the absolute values; unless these are way, way off or there are weird cells, forget about them if he feels well. Best wishes. ...Read more
