My kid sister has a blood platelet count of 3066.0 K/uL
Her Hemoglobin count is 13g/dl
I can also mail or attach the detailed report if required!
She is only 22 years old

After a lot of tests and check ups, a sample of her blood has been sent for BCR ABL.
Pneumonia was negative
Typhoid was negative
Can this be also due to Hepatitis C ?
Or can the count go so high if she is carrying microbes which are dormant?
What other possibilities have to be checked / looked for ?


She has just started (Since Tuesday, June 22, 2009):-
Hondrea 500 mg Cap Genric Name: Hydroxyurea
Zyloric 100 mg Tab Genric Name: Allopurinol
Escoprin 150mg Tab (Delayed Release) (Aspirin)




She is otherwise normal and her tests have no signs of Spleen Enlargement!
There are virtually no symptoms or ailments.
The high platelet count itself was discovered accidentally during a general checkup.

I am desperate in knowing what are the chances it is not "ONCO". What other tests/ treatments/ cure can be suggested?

  • Hey there. I have a bone marrow disorder calle Essential Thrombocytoss. And my counts are very similar to your sisters. Enter "Essential Thrombocytosis" into your google search bar and read up on those results. You might find some similarities to what your sister is experiencing.My kid sister has a blood platelet count of 3066.0 K/uL Her Hemoglobin count is 13g/dl I can also mail or attach the detailed report if required!
