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?

I am 55 years old, overweight@ 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

Platelets: MPV=mean (average) platelet volume. This is a fairly insignificant calculation from analysis of the blood by modern analyzers. It does not correlate with any known diseases when the platelet count is normal. So best to not worry about it. ...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?

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

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 blood test results showed my MPV @ 7.4 but all other results are within normal range. Should I be concerned?

Not likely: Your mean platelet volume is slightly low but as long as it hasn't been dropping or your platelet count has not been dropping even if it is still in the normal range there should be nothing to worry about. ...Read more

Hi I recently had a blood test and my PLT count was 51K and my MPV was 11.6fl. Everything else was pretty normal. Should I be concerned?

Need to repeat: Platelet count of 51k is low. Before worrying about it, it would be prudent to repeat the test, to make sure that there was no problem in specimen collection or analysis. ...Read more

Don't ignore: It would depend on what other medical conditions you have, if you were sick at the time of blood draw, what medications you're taking and your age but certainly something that needs to be worked up. ...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

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

What could cause the result of a blood teat showing hemogram mpv is lower than normal range, ?

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

I was diagnosed with CMV in january. When diagnosed my CBC levels were normal. Now my mpv is 8.9 which they are stating as low. What does this mean?

Slightly smaller: Platelets: what is your platelet count? If the count is above 150, 000, the slightly smaller size of platelets will not be of much concern. ...Read more

What does a low MPV signify if the platelet count is normal?

What does a low MPV signify if the platelet count is normal?

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.

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.
