Platelet aggregation: A platelet aggregation panel is used to diagnose hereditary and acquired platelet function disorders. The patient's platelets are combined with agents such as epinephrine, collagen, and adp which are known to make the platelets form blood clots.

Hello, my father is suffering from low platelet count, earlier we had CBC test platelet count was 108000, but soon after 3 days it got down to 82000?
Still safe: Many things cause low platelets. This includes medications, autoimmune problems, a large spleen, or problems with the bone marrow. Without more information, I can't tell you what might be wrong with your dad. But I can tell you he is not at risk of bleeding unless his platelets fall below 20, 000. With more than 80, 000, he is safe. I hope his doctors figure this out soon! ...Read more

Discuss with doctor: The findings you describe are consistent with "essential thrombocytosis", a condition in which the bone marrow produces too many platelets. Cause is unknown; it may be genetic. The "next step" should be a discussion with the provider who will be taking that next step with you-- along of course with parent (s) or guardian (s). ...Read more
My sister was suffring from aml m2 & now after one year in blood test platelets gone down to 16000 & lymphosytes are 86% & atypical lyphocytes ++?

In this case, the presence of atypical lymphs could suggest a recent viral syndrome with associated thrombocytopenia. However, to not consider the possibility of disease recurrence would just be wrong. She needs to see dr.! ...Read more

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 platelet count is not a cause for concern.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats.

In my last three blood test, my platelets count was near 120. My doctor told me to not worry about it. Could it be a sign of leukemia?
See below...: Theoretically, significant thrombocytopenia (low platelets) is one of the many abnormalities that can be associated with leukemia; however, many other conditions can cause it. In your case, the platelet number is only slightly decreased (normal range: 150-450 x 10 to the ninth/l) and, in the absence of other signs and symptoms, it is probably not indicative of leukemia. ...Read more
