Low Mpv Lab Value
I thought I was having a tia, but CT came back clean. Labs show hi gluc, low mpv, and albumin (gfr 91 ml/m)..
CT doesnt 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 moreGet help now ›
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 moreGet help now ›

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 moreGet help now ›

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 moreGet help now ›
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 moreGet help now ›
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 moreGet help now ›
