Platelets Are Still Low, Why Are You Allowed To Go Home?
Hello, I was hospitalized, for 3 days platelets are still low, but why are you allowed to go home? I am confused.
Hello, Septiana Nott. Thank you for the questions submitted to HealthReplies.com We can understand the concern you feel.
First of all, we need to ask a few questions. What symptoms cause you to go to the hospital? Since when did the complaint take place? Does the doctor provide a diagnosis of certain diseases that underlie your complaints? What were your platelet levels at the beginning, during and at the end of the treatment period?
Generally normal platelet levels range between 155,000-415,000 / μL. This normal range can vary slightly between laboratories due to differences in inspection machines used. Thrombocytopenia is a platelet level of less than 150,000 / μL.
Infectious disease often characterized by thrombocytopenia is a dengue virus infection. Low platelet levels are associated with bleeding events in patients with dengue virus infection, which can cause bleeding in the form of nosebleeds, bleeding gums, and bleeding in internal organs that can cause complaints of vomiting of blood and / or black bowel movements. Patients with platelet levels less than 100,000 / μL are strongly advised to be immediately taken to the doctor or emergency department, especially if accompanied by warning signs (warning signs) in the form of: rapid but weak pulse tones, reduced urination or no urination at all, legs felt cold, irregular breathing, and decreased consciousness.
If there has been clinical improvement during treatment accompanied by an increase in platelet levels, especially if the patient has passed the critical period of dengue ie fever on the 6th day or more, the patient begins to recover and can be discharged if there are no warning signs (warning signs) . Do not hesitate to consult with a doctor who treats you about the development of your illness after receiving treatment.
Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
