I just had blood work done and I was wondering what it means when you PLT is high?

Blood tests: There are a few diseases that leap out from blood tests. Most of the time, however, blood tests don't tell the doctor much on their own. Platelet counts rise and fall frequently and a single high platelet count is unlikely to be of consequence. ...Read more

What does it mean if GR, MO#, MCHC, Plt, MPV low?

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. This may well indicate serious illness -- or it may just reflect that reference ranges are set so that several percent of healthies fall outside. ...Read more

Had blood work done-Extremely tired-achy. Result WBC high and PLTS is 302 with range being 130-450 What does this mean?

Normal: 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!

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

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

I have chronic high wbc, high plt, and low ly. I got a CT scan that says borderline lymph nodes in neck (jugular region) at 15 mm what does this mean?

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?

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
