High platelet count

Recommended Posts

My annual physical shows I have an elevated blood platelet count.  I read it can be a fluke, because of dehydration, but my doc showed me my old test results.  My platelet count has been slowly creeping up over time.  He said it  likely isn't dangerous, some people just have that.  He's going to re9do the test in Sept and if the count is the same or goes up he'll send me to a hematologist, who might test my bone marrow.  That doesn't sound like fun!  I searched on the forum and it seems a few others have posted to ask about this (although no one posted their outcome).  I wanted to check in to see if anyone else has this?

I have the opposite. My platelets sometimes come back low. 

It's a mystery to me why this happens. They said the same to me — if it keeps coming back low they'll send me to a specialist. For now, we just keep an eye on it. It sometimes comes back normal, then low, then normal, etc.

Hope you find an answer!
