My father is 65 years old. Recently, we went for his routine cardio checkup. His doctor suggested thallium stress test, which was normal. He has been hypertensive for 15 years and is on anti-hypertensive Ramipril 5 mg, Amlodipine 2.5 mg and one diuretic. His BP was high, so the doctor has increased his dose this time. The doctor also asked for CBC. His CBC showed high MPV and giant platelet. What does that mean? I am attaching the report here. It would be really helpful if you go through the whole report and clear my doubt.
