Welcome to Justanswer website.
Myself Dr Josh and I’m happy to help with your question today.

MPV refers to average size of platelets in the blood. This test provides an indicator as to whether the bone marrow is manufacturing platelets normally.

For a healthy person MPV typically lies in the range of 5.0 – 15.0 femtoliters. You have a value of 12, this lies within normal range.

It is common to have small variations outside of normal range for MPV.
Sometimes different labs with different machines can measure these things a bit differently as well.
Your platelets are working well.

This is completely normal. It is good to hear that all blood tests are normal. No need to get panic or take stress. You are absolutely healthy. Please don't worry for any medical issue.

You're right it was only because the blood test papers have the cut off at 11.4!
And because I my sudden low blood pressure just freaked me out a little!
Maybe I need blood pressure pills to higher it though
Celina, It is common to have small variations outside of normal range for MPV. As per you lab readings, normal cut off range is 11.4 and you have a value of 12, still i would not panic.
You have normal blood tests. No need to get panic.

To raise a low blood pressure level, you should rehydrate by drinking lots of water.You should increase salt intake, Raw Beetroot juice, licorice root extract can be helpful. You should eat smaller, low-carb, frequent meals.
