Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 2 months ago.

thanks for your question and your medication list.

it can be normal for some patients to have some variation of their platelet levels in your 133 to 111k range.

you are far from a dangerous range with these levels.

your WBC count of 3.3 is also normal and show you don't have an infection in your body.

MCH of 32.1 is ok as well.

I would not stress about these levels. they don't point to danger in your bone marrow or your health

let me know if you have other questions.

No I feel this answer is adequate. It is what my physiatrist said. Was the initial fee $5.00? The amount went away before I could see it clearly.
