Mpv Higher Than Normal
I am 55 years old, [email protected] 240, my SGOT/AST is low @14, and MPV is higher @11.5 - What can I do to get them into the normal range?
Stop worrying: Hi. Both of those lab abnormalities are meaningless. So don't worry. The way "normal" ranges for labs are calculated, 1 out of every 20 results for normal, healthy people is expected to be outside the "normal range". To have a low AST, it's not logical to think you need to cause a little more inflammation in your liver to bring it up! And in the absence of thrombocytopenia, MPV is meaningless ...Read more
Should I be concerned that MCV (79.0)normal 80.0-98.0fl, MCH (26.1)normal 27.0-34.0pg & MPV (7.4)normal 7.8-11.0fl ARE LOW?
Complete Bood Counts: Or "CBC" are one of the most common blood tests and give some basic parameters about the blood cells themselves. The values you've given pertain to the size of the red blood cells and platelets (MCV, MPV), and the amount of hemoglobin per red cell (MCH). These are secondary considerations, and there's nothing to be concerned about if the other values are normal. ...Read more
This is normal too.

Probably nothing: I'm going to assume that your other parameters are normal, and that a bleeding time has been performed and did not suggest platelet problems. Lab reference ranges are set so that several percent of otherwise-healthy folks fall outside on either end. Get checked again in six months or as your fatigue workup continues. ...Read more

My white count is 19.8 should I be very concerned especially since mpv was over 13? It's been high for awhile but never higher than 16 for WBC

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
Does a slightly low mpv of 6.8 when the normal range is 7.5 to 12.5 affect the bleeding alot If I get injured? Do I need to be concerned at this level
No: Don't worry, this alone is nothing, see your dr for whole picture or if easy bruising or bleeding ...Read more

Context: Without the proper context nothing can really be said about these results. ...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?
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
Various factors: There are 3 red blood cell measurements that correlate with various types of anemia. They are mcv. Mch, and mchc. These factors help determine the cause of different types of anemia. The most common reason for the MCV to be low is with blood loss anemia (known as iron deficiency anemia). This can also occur with insufficient ingestion of iron or with disorders of hemoglobin like sickle cell. ...Read more

Hello. My bloodwork came back and was told its normal. However in looking at it I am concerned about platelet and mpv. Platelets are 154 (were 182 one year ago). And mpv is 11.2 last tested a year ago was 10.2. Is there need for concern? I have lots of he

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
Slightly elevated RBC, h&h and MPV. Only like 1 point above normal for about a month now. Can asthma, smoking or bronchitis cause this? Worried.
Maybe/depends,,,: Your h&h (hemoglobin and hematocrit) could be higher than expected due to the asthma as these indicate red cell mass and are important in oxygen carrying and increase to compensate for the trouble asthma may cause in getting enough oxygen. The MPV might just be a one time reading, but smoking and your Klonopin (clonazepam) use can affect platelets. It'd be smart to see your Dr. For more tests and discussion ...Read more

Why did you check it:
Did you have any reason/symptoms which led you to have your blood counts (CBC) checked?
Your history is helpful to know before we can interpret your blood counts. It is probably due to a virus infection. If you have not had a recent viral infection, then you should repeat check your CBC to find out if the counts have become normal. Otherwise you need to see your doctor for checkup.. ...Read more

CRP: The only one of those results that peaks my attention is the elevated crp. That indicates an inflammatory condition in your body and your doctor will probably have some ideas of what systems to further assess. The low testosterone isn't very specific so it should be repeated as a total and free testosterone in early A.M. ...Read more
