Mean Platelet Volume
Range of normals: Platelet volume reference range is the range in size of platelets in a normal population of people. A "reference range" is also called the "range of normal" or "normal limits", indicating that if you are in that "range, " you are presumed also to be normal. Certain diseases are associated with large platelets (itp, or myeloproliferative disorders), and some with small platelets (iron deficiency). ...Read more
Large platelets: The mpv is a measure of how large the platelet is. Large platelets are presumptively young platelets. If the platelets are being used up or destroyed rapidly (dic or itp) then younger platelets are released into the blood and this is reflected in an increase in the mpv. Also some hereditary platelet disorders cause high mpv. ...Read more
What does it mean blood test results WBC 12.1/LYMPHOCYTES 3.8/GRANULOCYTES 7.8/ RDW 14.0/PLATELETS 468/MPV 7.3/MCV 76.0/MCH 25.4?

Blood tests show high mean platelet volume, low platelet count, high urobilinogen, high WBC, high clumpy platelet morphology. Related? conerns?
Why the tests?: 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 might have helped to have the actual values rather than high and low. Why were the tests done?

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

Significance? Urine- wbc>100/cmm; red blood cells:+++; no growth. Fbc (suggestive of infection)- neutrophil:7.3 10*9/l; mean platelet volume: 12.3fl
Lab data: These results are meaningless without a clinical history and exam results. Although you have micropyuria and hematuria cannot be sure of the significance without knowing the problems you are investigating and the manner in which the urine was collected. It would be helpful if you provided the remainder of the cbc, but not without expounding on reasons it was done. ...Read more

Others may occur as a result of other diseases such as kidney failure. Some are of no consequence. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What does high 'mean platelet volume' and high 'lymphocytes' in complete blood count(cbc) test mean?
Discuss with PCP: Mean platelet volume (MPV) is a machine-calculated measurement of the average size of platelets found in blood. MPV is higher when there is destruction of platelets. Lymphocytes are usually high on viral infections or some cancers. Discuss with your doctor about it, as lab results by themselves, like this one, don't have a context to determine level of severity associated with them. ...Read more
Error,prodctn,distru: A random low platelet count is often the result of the nature of the test. Platelets are frail & may clump in the specimen before the test is run so a falsely lowered count is found.Low production during illness or bone marrow failure usually shows up in several blood cells. Increased destruction by immune factors or loss with bleeding disorders are seen. Platelets only last a few days at best. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Thrombocytosis...: ...Is the clinical term for a platelet count > 450k. This is subclassified as primary (essential) vs. Secondary: the former is due to unexplained production of platelets, the latter is most often due to chronic infections or inflammation (crohn's dz), anemia, cancer, a rxn to a medication, or following the surgical removal of the spleen.

Thrombocytosis: A high platelet count can be seen in many different conditions, both benign and malignant: iron deficiency anemia, following splenectomy and other types of surgery, in association with cancer, and as a result of a group of bone marrow disorders known as myeloproliferative neoplasms. It is very important that a high platelet count be evaluated promptly by a hematologist. ...Read more
