Bad things: It can mean that the body is not functioning properly, in that the bone marrow is being suppressed and the normal way in which blood cells and platelets are manufactured is being disturbed.

My brother in law has low platelet 80'000 and high MPV, he has a very bad rash (very red)on his face and his forehead and it has pimple. Can u tell me y?

He needs to ask: Your brother in law needs to get with his personal physician (s) and figure out what's going on. He may already know and be keeping it to himself. With this rash and platelet count, he may have lupus -- a fact he might not wish to share -- or they may be unrelated. He needs to tell his physician what medications he's taking, and be willing to undergo a workup for some immune & marrow problems. ...Read more

High platelets low mpv high absolute lymphs? Do these together show signs of leukemia and or lymphoma?

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?

I'm a 37m. I have a constant high bilirubin (~2.1mg/dl), and for several years, high mpv (~13.4fl), and low platelets (140-160k). What does this mean?

I'm a 37m. I have a constant high bilirubin (~2.1mg/dl), and for several years, high mpv (~13.4fl), and low platelets (140-160k). What does this mean?

Probably nothing: I'm going to assume you are not taking any medications that will raise your bilirubin, and do not have a mild birth defect causing hemolysis. You probably have gilbert's non-disease. Your physician knows the workup, which is simple -- if you turn a bit more yellow if you skip a few meals, you're basically got the diagnosis. I would not be worried about the platelets, but monitor them. ...Read more

Low wbc: No big problem- except for low white blood cell. What is your neutrophils count and what is your mcv? There are different things that can cause low white blood cells. Particularly in a vegan- you want to make sure that your vitamin B12 is not low. You need to take vit B12 supplement. Do you feel weak, any numbness, tingling, any memory problem? If you do- ask your doctor to check your vit B12 lvl. ...Read more

Some petechiae (doc confirmed) on trunk/left arm. CBC shows mildly low MCHC (31.4)& mildly high MPV (11.6). WBC w/diff, RBC, platelets, etc ok. Worrisome?

May not be worrisom: We would to know a lot more to say if this is a problem. What medications do you take, what other medical problems do you have. These could occur for a variety of reasons and you would need other testing as this may be simple like trauma or more related to an internal medical problem. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
