What could low platelet count with high mpv mean in someone with an eating disorder involving severe restricting?

What could low platelet count with high mpv mean in someone with an eating disorder involving severe restricting?

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. There may be other detectable and non-detectable changes as well. It's part of malnutrition and the harm to the body. Eating disorders are deadly, with up to a 25% mortality rate in untreated cases.! ...Read more

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?

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?

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'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

High mpv 11.7, low WBC 2.8, and low RBC 4.6, normal platelet 182, hct 41.9, 14.4 hgb, and vegan. Is this a problem? Thank you!

High mpv 11.7, low WBC 2.8, and low RBC 4.6, normal platelet 182, hct 41.9, 14.4 hgb, and vegan. Is this a problem? Thank you!

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

Mean platelet volume .7-.9 points low for 7 years... Platelets vary from high to high end of normal.... Should i be concerned?

No: If this is the only finding, and your physician is not concerned, i'd ignore it. Some people have smallish platelets. I trust you're not iron deficient. Best wishes. ...Read more
