Pregnant. Had platelets count. Can any on-line doctor help me? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you?
I have given blood sample for platelets count.
It came high. 5.76 where as normal range is 1.5 to 4.0.
I am in 13th week of pregnancy.
what will be the impact on my baby's growth and health. And what complications it will create on my health?
Have you undergone blood counts in the past, before pregnancy?
I think I have undergone platelets count at the beginning of my pregnancy confirmation (5th week). I will check that report.
Do you have the previous report for verification now?
it was 3.3 on 7th Jun 2013.
May I know if all other values in the platelet count is normal?'
All are normal.
The cause for high platelet count needs to be evaluated in the first instance.
what kind of tests I need to take to find the root cause?
But before we step into finding the cause, the current report needs to be confirmed.
If thrombocytosis is confirmed, it can cause some effects on pregnancy.
what will be the effects?
But do not be very worried.
There are reports of many women having successfully delivered a healthy baby with thrombocytosis.
With regular follow-ups, your gynecologist can monitor you and your baby for all effects and treat them early to make sure you have a healthy baby.
So the next step is confirm the platelet count values.
You may get the test repeated, perhaps at a different laboratory.
If reports confirm high platelets, you can report back to your gynecologist.
Have you followed?
ok..I got it.
Do you have any questions?
Thanks for consulting me.
My gynecologist suggested some doctor to consult.
Bye for now.
I am having consultation tomorrow.
Did she refer you to a hematologist?
Your consultation helped me to prepare myself for tomorrows session.
I am visiting him tomorrow.
I think tomorrow's consultation will go on smoothly.
At this point of time, you need not be worried.
Your doctor might ask you to repeat the test and begin further investigations after you complete this pregnancy.
you can come back to us for queries, if needed.
All the best!
Bye for now.
ok...Thanks a lot doctor.
Have a good day!...
