Low Mean Platelet Volume
I have an arteriovenous malformation (prefrontal cortex). Now, also really low mean platelet volume. Is the avm's bleeding risk high because of this?
Platelets: A low mpv in and of itself is not necessarily a risk factor for bleeding if the total platelet count is normal. If treating the avm is not an option, then do avoid Aspirin and ginkgo biloba, which can both increase bleeding tendency. Speak to your doctor about getting an ivy bleeding time test, as it will tell you how well your platelets are working. And do make sure your BP is not elevated.See 3 more doctor answers
I have an avm and lab work shows very low mean platelet volume and low rdw. I've been having at least 1 bad nosebleed daily with severe weakness/fatigue and bone pain. Could it be the avm is bleeding?
Not the AVM: If it bleeds, you will know, beyond any question. It's not connected to your nose.
Thrombocytopenia: You have moderate thrombocytopenia- or low platelet. Go to see doctor to find the cause. Platelet can be low due to many different things from infection, autoimmune process, certain nutrient deficiency, drug/toxin induced, destruction of platelet, consumption, decrease in production etc. Go to see MD to check it out.
What does it mean if I have low rbc, wbc, mean platelet volume, monocyte abs, and neutrophil. I have had a fever for the last 2 months;?
Low counts: Sounds like you have low blood counts and fever. Could be infection need to see a doctor and have more tests.
Mean platelet volume. 7-.9 points low for 7 years... Platelets vary from high to high end of normal.... Should I be concerned?
Need actual values: 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, it not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without the actual values. It would be prudent to discuss the findings with your doctor.
Mean platelet volume 5.9 which is low. Hematocrit 45.2 slightly elevated. All other test within normal range. Any cause for concern?
No: But I am concerned that you infarcted some of your spleen, especially as a young woman. Please try to find out why -- and if it was atherosclerosis, do everything you can to keep this at bay.
Blood tests show high mean platelet volume, low platelet count, high urobilinogen, high WBC, high clumpy platelet morphology. Related? Conerns?
Why the tests?: 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, it might have helped to have the actual values rather than high and low. Why were the tests done? It would be prudent to discuss these with the doctor who ordered the test as s/he knows more about your health. 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. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. 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. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine.
Had my complete blood count test, find mean platelet volume high - 11.4fl and hydroxyvitamin d low - 22.90ng/ml. Please advice reasons and remedy.?
Follow up: Follow up with your doctor about increase platelet count, if need your doctor can refer you to hematologist for further evaluation. As far as vit, . D level, normal is 30--100, your level is 22.9, I am sure your doctor does recommend vit d3 supplementaion. Just follow their instruction, recheck after 3 months or so.
I am 53 my LDL came in at 120, my mean platelet volume is high at 11.6, my monocytes are high at 9.2. What does this mean? I
Nothing.: If you feel great and don't have a personal history of heart disease these are great.
Mean cell hemoglobin conc. 32.9 (31-37); platelet count 315 (150-450); mean platelet volume 6.8 (7.4-11). Do I have a problem with my platelets?
Unlikely: Since the platelet count is normal, a low mpv of this degree does not mean much. Clinical correlation is recommended.
My 16 year old son has platelet count 255 and mean platelet volume 11.0 with a comment large platelets present. What could be the cause of that?
Is it safe to have a surgical procedure when my platelet count is 252 and dropping and my mean platelet volume is 8.4? Should I be concerned?
This is adequate cou: Platelet counts will fluctuate between 150, 000 to 300, 000. If your count is over 150, 000, it is normal. Surgery can be done safely (if necessary) as long as platelet count is >50, 000. The mean platelet volume does not matter as long as the counts are sufficiently high.
Hi, I had a test of blood the result was like this MEAN PLATELET VOLUME (MPV) 10.5 fL [6.4 - 9.7] MONOCYTES (ABS COUNT) 0.81 X10^9/L [0 - 1].?
See below: 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, none of your results are a cause for concern.
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.
