what does a 458 platelet count mean

Customer Question

what does a 458 platelet count mean

Hello,

Thanks for your question.

Normal platelet count is between 150–450 × 1000/µL.

Though your platelet count is slightly increased, this would be classified as normal if there are no symptoms. If there are symptoms, this test needs to be repeated, along with other relevant investigations.

A slight increase in platelet count may be seen after bleeding, in iron deficiency, trauma, acute infections, or after exercise (transient).

Take care.

what if you have been diagnosed with purpura

 

Expert:  Dr. Ravoof replied 7 years ago.
Thanks for your reply.

Actually a normal platelet count differentiates Henoch-SchOnlein purpura (HSP) from thrombocytopenic purpura.
