Mpv Blood Test Low
I've blood test indicate high ESR 70-110, high mchc 36.2, low RDW 30.8, high mpv 12.3, low pct 32% w/ other test normal. Am i susceptible to hiv?
I had a blood test done a while ago and i had a normal platelet count but a low mpv (6.3) and the only symptom i have is foamy urine. What could this ?
Test results: I doubt there is a connection between low platelet volume and your foamy urine. Did they check your urine itself? Or check your kidney function? Do you feel well? Any test can give falsely abnormal results, or results that are not in the normal range, but it doesn't really matter as long as you feel well. If you are well, don't worry. If worried, as to repeat the test, check the urine and kidneys. ...Read more
Having esophagus/stomach issues for2 years. I'm wondering if having a consistently low MPV blood test and recently high red cell count is significant?
It depends/unlikely,: It's unlikely that this poses a problem based on the blood results. If your red cell count was low, not high, that could be a reason to suspect something, like a bleeding GI/stomach ulcer. The MPV, assuming it means mean platelet volume doesn't have any obvious connection to this and if the platelet number is normal, it's likely no problem. Finally the GI issues themselves may be unrelated. ...Read more
See below: 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, your MPV is at the high end of normal but is not a cause for concern. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Bleeding risk: Platelets are important to initiate blood clotting. With a count of 50,000 your time to stop bleeding will be twice that of normal. By itself that's not very dangerous, but should be monitored. The cause of low platelets are infections, drugs, auto-immune reactions, and blood or bone marrow diseases. It needs further evaluation if follow up counts show it getting worse. ...Read more
Symptoms?: Why did you have a CBC checked? The mean platelet volume and immature granulocyte counts being high in of themselves aren't too concerning. Both of these can be high when your bone marrow is ramped up a bit, perhaps do to a previous infection. If your platelet count, hemoglobin and white blood cell counts are close to normal, I am not worried, though i don't if you are having concerning symptoms. ...Read more
Nothing specific: What was the actual value? A slightly high value may be a variation of normal. If rest of the profile is normal, it is not something to be concerned about. ...Read more
I just received my blood test. It flagged "lymphocytosis granulocytopenia". What does it mean? I noticed some bolded words. LYM 44.5,GRA 48.5,MPV 6.9
As below: lymphocytosis simply means higher Lymphocyte [LYM] count. On the other hand granulocytopenia means lower Neutrophil [GRA]count. We have white blood cells [WBC] in our blood which are supposed to protect us from infections. It is very important that number and rations are maintained properly by our bone marrow where these blood cells are produced. please let me know the rest of the blood report ...Read more
Routine Blood test back in march and now december have showed 11.1 mpv. Exact number both times. Completely normal rest of blood work. Is this normal?
These came up abnormal in blood test,could someone help?
MCHC 294 g/l
Direct bilirubin 5.48 umol/L
Numbers are numbers: The rest of the story is needed, such as WHY did a person go to the doctor, and WHY were the blood tests done? Numbers often have no meaning without hearing the rest of the story. One's regular doctor, who knows what the person's symptoms were, why a blood test was ordered, and who has examined the patient, can be helpful here. Otherwise, these numbers are just numbers. ...Read more
I was sent to get a blood test because of kidney stones that a sonogram revealed I have. My results show that my MPV is high at 12.7 Is that normal?
Platelets: MPV=mean platelet volume This is a little used value in thehemograom, with only weak correlation with disease states. Like red cells, younger platelets tend to be bigger, and stress reactions may prompt earlier release from the marrow. Many possible causes, but little utility in isolation. ...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?
Why ordered: WBC may be elevated. It depends on the range .You should discuss the results of your lab tests with the medical provider who ordered the test in the context of your particular medical conditions. Nine is a bit young to be on Health Tap. ...Read more
Hypothyroidism: The elevated TSH level is the only thing to really be concerned about here. It indicated that you body isn't getting the amount of thyroid hormone that it would like and so it is signalling for more. Your doctor may want to adjust your dose somewhat to compensate for that. ...Read more
If a blood test reveals that something is borderline high, does that mean something is unhealthy about you? For example: mean platelet volume = 13.0.
Nope: Normal ranges for lab tests are calculated to represent the range within which a given result will be in 95% of healthy people. That means 5% of ALL lab results are outside the normal range even when nothing is wrong at all. So let's take a test panel like a complete blood count where there are 10+ tests bundled together: at least 1 will usually be "abnormal" or "borderline" for anyone. ...Read more
