Low Mpv Count
My last blood work showed high WBC count, low MPV, high absolute neutrophils, High CH50, High C3c, and high C-reactive protein. Is there any concern?
Send us your report/: Once we can see the results, I can help you to explain what the numbers mean. Tell us about your medical history....why did you get your blood tests to start with??? ...Read more
Does a slightly low mpv of 6.8 when the normal range is 7.5 to 12.5 affect the bleeding alot If I get injured? Do I need to be concerned at this level
No: Don't worry, this alone is nothing, see your dr for whole picture or if easy bruising or bleeding ...Read more
Depends!: The low MPV does not usually have any significant importance. I tend to ignore it most of the time. The slightly elevated WBC can be due to many things such as infection, inflammation, medications, stress, autoimmune disorders, other disorders and in rare occasions blood disorders such as leukemia. It has to be put in the context of history, examination and other laboratory values. ...Read more
Can't tell: Isolated labs are not how doctors make diagnoses. History is the most important part of a medical evaluation. Why were the labs performed? The mpv is a measure of average platelet size; it is only meaningful if platelets are decreased. Mildly elevated igm levels can indicate infection or immune dysregulation. The RDW and MCHC are red blood cell properties. Many healthy people have these results. ...Read more
Cbc results: low lymphocytes (15.7), high granulocytes 79.2, gr# 8.3, mchc low (32.4), MCV normal, RDW high (14.3), low mpv (7.7). Is this concerning?
Context: Without the proper context nothing can really be said about these results. ...Read more
No problem: The MPV means the size of the platelets. Size of platelets can be hereditary. Occasional syndromes have low MPV and larger MPV can be associated with newer younger platelets. Normal platelet counts in a healthy person with no bleeding issues is fine even if the MPV is small. ...Read more
Hi. I am a bit freaked out. I have a high MCH, low MPV and low RBC. I am tired all the time. What is wrong with me?
Need more info:
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 would have helped to have the actual results not high and low. What is your hemoglobin?
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat 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.

What does it mean if blood tests GR is 53.7 low, MO# 0.3 low, MCHC 32.1 low, Plt 122. low, MPV 7.7 low?
I'm not concerned: These are all just very slightly out of the reference ranges, present no health hazard, warn of nothing, and if you're feeling healthy, go home thankful. Thanks for clarifying. ...Read more
CBC done today, slightly low MPV, but everything else normal - platelets 195 (scale 130-400). Is MPV alone cause for concern? Thanks!
MPV: MPV value is of no concern if your Hgb & WBC counts are normal. ...Read more
More information nee: Low mpv--means the the patient has smaller platelets. This may be associated with some family history of smaller platelets or with some syndromes. High platelets can be associated with iron deficiency or other vitamin deficiencies. Should be discussed with your doctor. ...Read more
My 14 year old daughter has a low mpv (6.0) and a normal platelet count. Is this concerning? Does she need any further workup?
Nothing to worry: No worry. No need for further work-up as long as platelet level is within normal range. ...Read more
High platelets low mpv high absolute lymphs? Do these together show signs of leukemia and or lymphoma?
Incomplete info: 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, what you have provided is not sufficient information to render a meaningful opinion. How high is the lymphocyte count? What is the morphology? Are there any enlarged lymph glands? It would be prudent to consult your doctor. ...Read more
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
Low mpv (9.1), low neutrophil (34), high lymphocyte (48), high monocyte (9), high eosinophil (9). 17 yrs old li fraumeni female. Should I worry?
No: I often wish labs would not even report the percentages. Only the absolute values matter. The fact that you have li fraumeni means you must educate yourself about how to spot cancers early. This will greatly enhance your chances for a long, happy life. The only tip-off that a blood count will give is if there are abnormal cells circulating. ...Read more
A have a low mpv (6.90fl) but a normal platelets (353.00x10-3) what can does tha mean? All other text was normal except low T3 (liothyronine) and high cholesterol.
Small platelets: MPV stands for Mean Platelet Volume and is a measure of the size of the platelets in your blood. Platelets are cellular elements that help initiate blood clotting. If your platelet count is low (< 100, 000 per microliter) then the time it takes to stop bleeding increases. The MPV can be a clue as to why someone has a low platelet count, but on its own it doesn't mean much. ...Read more
What does a low MPV 8.5 (9.00-13.00fl) mean with high platelets of 447 (150-410)? Slightly raised WBC and neutrophils as well. Hgb is 13.4
A hematologist should provide the answer. The best I found as far MPV is as Follows, the rest is normal
Mean platelet volume (MPV) is a machine-calculated measurement of the average size of platelets found in blood and is typically included in blood tests as part of the CBC. Since the average platelet size is larger when the body is producing increased numbers of platelets, the MPV test results can be used to make inferences about platelet production in bone marrow or platelet destruction problems. MPV is higher when there is destruction of platelets. This may be seen in inflammatory bowel disease, immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP), myeloproliferative diseases and Bernard-Soulier syndrome. It may also be related to pre-eclampsia, and recovery from, transient hypoplasia.
Abnormally low MPV values correlate with thrombocytopenia when it is due to impaired production as in aplastic anemia. In addition, low MPV, can correlate with abnormally small platelet size, sometimes a symptom of a spectrum referred to as Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome, caused by a genetic mutation of the WAS gene.
A typical range of platelet volumes is 9.7–12.8 fL (femtolitre), equivalent to spheres 2.65 to 2.9 µm in diameter. Normal range is given as 7.5-11.5 fL ...Read more
I have high platelets, low MPV, low lymphocyte percentage, low MCH, high segmented neutrophils, high atypical lympcytes, high reticulocyte count?
Why did you have these tests done? 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 would have helped to have the actual values rather than your interpretation of high and low. It would prudent to discuss it with the doctor who ordered the tests.
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.

Having esophagus/stomach issues for2 years. I'm wondering if having a consistently low MPV blood test and recently high red cell count is significant?
It depends/unlikely,: It's unlikely that this poses a problem based on the blood results. If your red cell count was low, not high, that could be a reason to suspect something, like a bleeding GI/stomach ulcer. The MPV, assuming it means mean platelet volume doesn't have any obvious connection to this and if the platelet number is normal, it's likely no problem. Finally the GI issues themselves may be unrelated. ...Read more
I thought I was having a tia, but CT came back clean. Labs show hi gluc, low mpv, and albumin (gfr 91 ml/m). Autoimmune? Dehydration? 27wm
CT doesn't show TIAs: It doesn't even show strokes unless large or post acute stage. But, in you age a TIA is rare anyways. Hi glucose means diabetes. If you have had it for 10-15 years, then TIA remains on the list. Kidney function is little low for your age. Gfr should be above 110. Albumin, if in urine suggests long years of diabetes, among others. Autoimmune should be tested but is not very likely, tho possible. ...Read more

Could diabetes type 1.5 be the underlying cause of TIA like symptons, hypertension, hi glucose, low mpv, and low kidney function+protein in urine?
Low MCH low MCHC low MPV low LYMPHOCYTES// in urine; 7.5 PH, microscopic ana. WBC 6-7 and RBC 0-1. WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME DOC.? please answer. Tx
That's not possible: To answer without an exam, history, and other basic elements of a medical assessment. You do have a local doctor since these tests were requested. What does your doc say about these things and why they were checked? You have lab values, but there is no detail about how you are feeling. That's the most important part. Abnormal labs in isolation are usually meaningless. Ask your doctor? S. ...Read more
