Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello, My name isXXXXX i will try to help you with your queries today.
Why this test was done ?
Do you have any other medical issues ?
are you taking some medicine ?
What was your hemoglobin ? and platelet counts ?
Regular Check Up.
Hemoglobine and platelet counts are normal
Did you had lower counts before or this is first time ?
Did you had viral infection
chest infection ? gut infection or any other problem in the recent past ?
Do you get sick easily ?
not at all
This is marginally low count and in the absence of normal hemoglobin, normal platelets and no signs of infection or history of infections
this needs a repeat test after 2 weeks
in most cases the cause is viral infection
which goes unnoticed.
Are you sexually active ?
Yes i am married. only with my wife.
any urinary infections ?
No, because the urine analysis is normal
ok, that is good to know because this rules out most of the infections like hepatitis and HIV
so in your case it seems that most like cause was viral
which went un noticed
and other possible cause is wrong test reports
nothing to worry about?
which need to be repeated after 2 weeks.
No, nothing to worry because this low count can be congenital and can be normal for you
if it has not been checked before.
so nothing linked to leukemia or something like that?
no, because blood tests would show more abnormalities not just marginal low counts
thank you very much
You are welcome.
Have a nice day
same to u
and come back if you need more help.
