I have frequent bleeding, mostly on arms and legs. Pletlet count is borderline low (10). Should I see a hematologist?
Yes: Platelet counts of 10, 000 are considered to be severe thrombocytopenia. There are several potential causes of thrombocytopenia that a hematologist could assess and possibly provide treatment. I recommend that you see a hematologist if you have not already done so. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What does it mean to have a low mpv (7.1) but a normal platelet count? (256). My doctor says its normal, but I do have bruising & my bones hurt easily
No worry: Nothing you should worry about. I do not thing that the low mpv has anything to do with your bruising and bony aches. Brusing can be caused by different things like abnormal function of the platelet, problem with skin collagen, thyroid problem, hormonal, etc. If you are bruising easily, you may want to ask your doctor to run some test or refer you to see a hematologist for further work-up. ...Read more
Near normal: Normal platelets counts are 150000 to 250000, so 140000 is near normal. If you do not have abnormal bleeding, e.g., easy bruising, bleeding from gums, blood in stools or urine, there is no cause for concern. It would be good to know your complete blood count because if other blood components are also low, then it should be investigated. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Noticed bruising behind right thigh after a few trips in one month. My platelet count is 229 should I be concerned? Should I do another CBC test?
Not likely: It may very well be related to fragile blood vessels in the area. Its unlikely a platelet issue with platelet numbers like that. If you don't have other signs of easy bleeding like bleeding gums, bloody noses, blood in your stool or urine, vomiting or cough up blood, it is incredibly reassuring. In fact, it may just be fragile blood vessels and platelet effects of the ibuprofen you take! ...Read more
I have low platelet count. Used to have low red blood but now hv recovered. However platelet is still low.Any reason for this?
Low platelets: It could be due to impaired production of platelets from the bone marrow, or from increased destruction which usually occurs in the spleen. Itp is an autoimmune condition that sometimes can occur spontaneously in women your age and causes very low platelets. Other immune disorders such as lupus should also be ruled out. ...Read more
Why would someone be having random bruising? Iron levels are fine. I have bruises all up and down my legs and I have not bumped into anything.
Depends on cause: Platelets help form clots. Low platelets are caused by lack of production or destruction. Immune-mediated thrombocytopenic purpura (itp), a condition where the body makes auto-antibodies against platelets, can be treated with medicines (ivig, win rho, sometimes steroids). If production is the problem, the cause needs to be found. Can be simply caused by a virus, or be as serious as leukemia. ...Read more
Anemia and high K: Your high potassium (k) could be due to your elevated platelet (p) count. It is due to k being liberated in the test tube from the p. Your anemia is another issue and needs evaluation by a physician (p). You are on iron supplements and patients that are iron deficient have high p counts. You need medical help to find the cause(s) of your anemia, which could be blood loss, among others. See a p. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I have petichiae on my legs, arms, and face. I had blood work done and have low haptoglobin <6, 2.3 reticulocytes, low platelets133. Possible causes?
Many possibilities..: The petechiae you are experiencing could be due to a somewhat low platelet (plts) count and that you are taking both Aspirin and Ibuprofen (both inhibit platelets). The higher than normal reticulocyte count with the low haptoglobin are consistent with hemolysis (red blood cell (rbc) breakdown). One possibility could be evans syndrome ("autoimmune" reaction to rbcs and plts). See hematologist. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
