Could you list some of the disorders that could cause a low PLT count of 10x10^9/L, whether the disorders are common or rare?

Could you list some of the disorders that could cause a low PLT count of 10x10^9/L, whether the disorders are common or rare?

Thrombocytopenia...: ...and no. That's called a differential diagnosis, & it's way too complicated to list here. You can look it up yourself. One CAN divide it into 2 simple categories. Platelets are always being made and destroyed (dynamic equilibrium). So low platelets are due to either 1) decreased production or 2) increased destruction. As the great sage Hillel said, "all the rest is explanation; go and learn it." ...Read more

I have ET for 8 years. since I was 22. My Plt count was over 1M most of the time. In the last two months my Plt count is 500K how can it be?

I have ET for 8 years. since I was 22. My Plt count was over 1M most of the time. In the last two months my Plt count is 500K how can it be?

By ET, I presume: you mean essential thrombocythemia, an uncommon disorder in which your body produces too many platelets. It likely results from a gene mutation. If your platelet count is usually around 1M, I would first suspect a lab error. Repeat it now. Discuss with your hematologist. ET would not be expected to spontaneously improve; some complicating or interfering condition might be occurring. Good wishes:) ...Read more
