Good evening Riie, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The number of platelets that exceeds the normal number (usually above 450,000 / mm3) is a condition called thrombocytosis. The causes of thrombocytosis itself are very diverse, and are divided into 2 major groups, namely primary thrombocytosis or secondary thrombocytosis.
Primary thrombocytosis is an increase in platelet count due to the disruption of platelet production in the body where there is an increase in the production of platelet initiation cells from the bone marrow.
While secondary thrombocytosis or also referred to as reactive thrombocytosis is a condition that is not dangerous and occurs due to the body's response to excessive inflammatory reactions in the body, such as when someone has an infection, inflammation, cancer, iron deficiency or surgery.
Therefore, because your child is already hospitalized, this condition must be known by the doctor who treats your child and also must have been given therapy to help reduce it and overcome other complaints, which you need to do now to help the child's recovery you quickly do all the advice of the doctor who treats your child, because the advice and treatment given must have been based on clear considerations and in accordance with the condition of your child.
If there are things that concern your child's condition that you want to say further or you need clearer interest, it is strongly recommended to ask directly to the doctor who is treating your child because he is more aware of your child's current condition.
I hope this helps.
