Platelets Are Normal In Children Aged 3 Years?
In the afternoon, I want to ask if platelets are normal for 3-year-olds, right? Is platelet 110 normal or not?
Hello Tia, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
I try to help explain.
Platelets or pieces of blood are one component of blood cells apart from red blood cells and white blood cells. Thrombocytes function for the process of blood clotting in the event of injury, if the platelet value increases or decreases the blood clotting process can be disrupted. The normal value of platelets is 150,000-450,000 cells / mm3.
High platelet values or called thrombocytosis can occur in conditions such as polycythemia vera, myelofibrosis. Whereas for low platelet values or called thrombocytopenia can occur in conditions such as hemolytic anemia, dengue hemorrhagic fever, renal failure.
Based on data provided by you, platelet values of 110,000 include platelet values that are below normal. Generally platelet values can return to normal if adequate food intake. But if accompanied by other symptoms such as weakness, dizziness, nosebleeds, bleeding gums, you should check your child's condition to see a pediatrician. Later, in addition to physical examination, laboratory tests may be needed again.
Hope it helps, thanks.
