I have an arteriovenous malformation (prefrontal cortex). Now, also really low mean platelet volume. Is the avm's bleeding risk high because of this?

Platelets: A low mpv in and of itself is not necessarily a risk factor for bleeding if the total platelet count is normal. If treating the avm is not an option, then do avoid Aspirin and ginkgo biloba, which can both increase bleeding tendency. Speak to your doctor about getting an ivy bleeding time test, as it will tell you how well your platelets are working. And do make sure your BP is not elevated. ...Read more

Can this be cll? Rbc 3.97 low- mean platelet volumes 7.2 low, ly 46.8 high, hct 36.5 low, DNA abs double stranded abnormal 5 iu/ml, low iron, low vitd

Concern: It is extremely important whether the lymphocyte count is an absolute number or a percentage. If this is the absolute number, namely 46.8 thousand/microliter, I am very concerned about the possibility of cll. Consulting a hematologist for peripheral blood morphology, flow cytometry, cytogenetics, and molecular studies is of paramount importance. If 46.8% with normal wbc, I am not so concerned. ...Read more
