Brief Answer: Please upload the printed copy of your lab results Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX I have gone through your query and understood your concerns. Normal levels for the mean platelet volume (MPV) is 7.5 - 11.5; yours is 6.5 (considered as mildly reduced). However, if your platelet count is normal, then, this is not concerning. Normal levels for glucose is 60 - 100 mg/dl; yours is 68 falling into the normal range. If I'd explain all the parameters, I'd also need to have the normal reference ranges of the lab where you did the exams. As you have a printed copy of your blood work, can you please scan it and send it to me? I'd like to know if the blood work you did was routine or follow-up to your current health problems? If yes, can you please refer your actual health concerns? Thank you for your kind collaboration! Dr.Bardha

Yes Dr. Sejdini, I will type the report to you as I so not have a scanner. I usually get this blood work done on a routine yearly basis, though he has just started me doing it at 6 mos. I will get the report to you promptly. Thank you for your timely reply, it is appreciated. It was noted in the report something to do with the kidneys, referring to the last two values O typed..ok I will type report tonight. Thank you again.XXXX
