Goldie had her routine blood work done back in September and her platelets were 432. I think that should be in thousands. The normal range is listed as 156-369. Her iron was low so we treated it and had another CBC in January. That time her platelets were 421. I was told by the GI doctor that this was slightly elevated, but could be due to her having a recent infection and not to worry about it. (Her blood had been drawn about a month after she had strep and an ear infection) Well, then I went and compared it to her first blood draw and saw that it had been higher in September. I'm pretty sure she hadn't been sick then. I found information on low platelets, but can't seem to find anything on elevated platelet counts. All her other numbers were in the normal range. Any ideas?
Goldie has her 2 year checkup this week and I've got my list of questions for the pediatrician. She also has an appt at the DS center in May, so anything the ped. can't handle I will save for them.
