Hello doctor,

My platelet count is higher 5,01,000 and my Hb is 9.2 gm %. I am very sick. What is the reason and is there any big problem in future? My age is 33 years and I am a female.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

It does not appear to be a matter of worry. You may have symptoms like easy fatigue, shortness of breath and palpitations, due to low hemoglobin. Do you have any symptoms other than what I mentioned above? Do you have a fever, weight loss, etc? Likely cause for the changes in blood parameters is iron deficiency. You may get it confirmed by doing iron profile test. Alternatively, you get started yourself on iron supplements as in all probabilities it is iron deficiency only. So, you should be started on tablet Fericip XT (Iron and Folic acid) twice a day after breakfast and dinner. This has to be continued till hemoglobin is corrected. So get it started and repeat hemoglobin and platelets after four weeks.
