An Explanation Of The Results Of A Complete Blood Lab Examination.?
, I want to ask. I have a complete blood check. The result is that my hemoglobin is 10.4 g / dl, my platelets are 511,000, is it due to lack of red blood cells so that my platelets are increasing. Explanation please. Thanks 🙏
Good morning, thanks for the question
Platelets are a component of blood produced in the bone marrow and play a role in the formation of blood clots in the process of wound healing. Platelet counts that increase from normal values are called thrombocytosis.
Secondary thrombocytosis or called reactive thrombocytosis is an increase in platelets based on other conditions, for example:
1. History of blood loss due to acute bleeding
2. Malignant disease
4. Anemia due to iron deficiency
5. Anemia due to excessive red blood cell breakdown
6. Inflammatory disease
7. Post operation
In your case an increase in platelets may also be caused by anemia. This reactive thrombocytosis is temporary, where if the cause has been treated, the platelets will return to the normal range. In your case, if the type of anemia is known and treated optimally, then the platelet level is checked again over time to assess whether the level is still rising.
Thrombocytosis without a clear cause is called primary thrombocytosis, where the condition is due to genetic abnormalities in the bone marrow that produce blood components. Suspicion of this condition needs further evaluation because it is more at high risk of bleeding. Carry out further consultations with your doctor to establish a diagnosis of anemia type and appropriate treatment.
That's all, hope you can help
