Low Blood Pressure?
Hello good night. I want to ask if hb 7.2 g/dl with platelets 668 10^3/ul is dangerous?
Thrombocytosis is a state of increasing the number of platelets / platelets which in normal circumstances ranges from 150,000-45,000 platelets per microliter of blood. Causes of platelets can be divided into two, namely:
secondary (reactive) thrombocytosis, which is a state of increased platelet count due to an infectious condition or other disease such as: acute bleeding, tuberculosis (TB) infection, heart attack, allergies, burns, hemolytic anemia to the use of drugs such as epinephrine, heparin sodium, tretinoin and vincristine sulfate. Primary (essential) thrombocytosis, which is caused by a disorder in the bone marrow (the place that produces blood cells). Unfortunately, the cause of the disorder in the bone marrow is still unknown. So, seeing the condition of your platelet value that exceeds the normal value, accompanied by low Hb levels (anemia), you may experience moderate bleeding, organ inflammation, or iron deficiency anemia conditions.
In this forum we have not been able to conclude how dangerous the condition you are experiencing is only with the two data above. you should see a doctor again for further examination or a direct consultation with a hematology subspecialist in internal medicine. The doctor may offer you to do a blood test to determine the value of ESR (average erythrocyte sedimentation), levels of CRP (C-reactive protein) and serum iron (the iron value in your blood serum).
for now all you can do at home is rest enough and adjust your diet. consume foods high in protein and foods that can increase your Hb such as red meat, fish, green beans, and green vegetables. You should avoid coffee, tea and chocolate because they will inhibit the absorption of iron. on the other hand, increase the consumption of foods and drinks that contain lots of vitamin C.
so the information from us may be useful,
