Can 128 Rb Platelets Be Treated Without Hospitalization?
Good evening doctor, I just checked for platelets, and it turns out the results are below normal 128rb. Well whether the levels they can be treated at home without having to do hospitalization?
Platelet levels below normal are called thrombocytopenia where the normal platelet level is 150,000 - 450,000 per microliter of blood. The causes of thrombocytopenia are as varied as fever caused by a viral infection, dengue fever or dengue hemorrhagic fever, blood disorders such as anemia, ITP, contact with chemicals, use of certain drugs, autoimmune disorders and others.
For that, return to the doctor who examined you to combine the results of the laboratory examination with the results of other examinations such as medical interviews and physical examinations to determine the diagnosis and treatment that suits your condition. If accompanied by fever and fever day is still less than 5 days then there is a possibility that platelet levels can still go down and also whether or not to require hospitalization not only based on platelet results but also based on general health conditions, vital signs, physical examination, supporting examinations and other blood laboratory examination components. Examination can also be carried out periodically to monitor platelet levels if it continues to fall to below 100,000 so that further treatment is needed, one of them is inpatient treatment and also further monitoring.
Drink plenty of water, rest and return immediately to the doctor who examined you to make the diagnosis that you experience for appropriate treatment. If complaints arise nosebleeds, bleeding gums, cold sweat, dizziness, fainting and others immediately to the nearest health facility or emergency unit.
