What Does Plt Cnt Mean
You may be sick: We can do nothing more with this. HOW low, what the physical findings are, what the smear looked like are all part of the picture.

Your platelets or PLTS for short are your bodies blood cells that initially help you to form a clot. Your level is normal and within the range of 130-450. That is 302, 000!
This can be estimated by looking at a slide however most labs use a coulter counter which counts these and other blood elements by passing the blood over a light beam. ...Read more
Plt count nirmal at 165 but says platelets range in size and some are large and I bruise very easily what could this mean?
That's fine: Some folks have a few big platelets -- this in itself is never a problem. If you have an actual bleeding tendency, as following oral surgery or minor surgery, a hematologist might work you up but it's unlikely that the few big platelets will be helpful information. Best wishes. ...Read more

My plt. Count now is 129000. the lab patologist said that most of my platelets are gaint. What does this mean? Is it dangerous?
Many causes: There are many causes of low platelet counts, but the most common cause of isolated low platelets is either drug toxicity or immune-mediated thrombocytopenia (ITP). The large platelets usually reflect younger platelets and suggest that there is an increased turnover, which is commonly seen in ITP. You should be evaluated by a hematologist. ...Read more

Does low lymph mean u have aids my blood test said mine was 8low. Wbc is 15.3h plts 142low. Bun 6 low cr 0.48low gluc116 ca7.9 everything else normal.
Maybe infection,,,: From your information, it looks like you've got infection. Your white count is high and that is a very telling sign of infection which could be a complication of your endometriosis. You'd need an aids test and would have other general signs like long standing fever and not necessarily abdominal pain and wouldn't have such a high white count for aids. Best of luck. ...Read more

Time to be seen: Without further history at this point it is time your primary care providers recommends you see a specialist. A lymph node biopsy may be in order depending on how long this has gone on. While a reactive process is favored, if this has persisted for a long period of time, then a more worrisome diagnosis needs to be considered and ruled out. ...Read more

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?
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
