does anyone have high platelet count that is NOT correlated with a leukemia and/or other bone marrow diseases?
my hematologist said i might have essential thrombocythemia (a myeloproliferative disorder), but my allergist says that many young patients have moderately high platelet levels (mine is 628, although it's been increasing for a few years). i've had really bad allergies since I was kid, especially since moving to TX, so could that be elevating the platelets? i don't see my hematologist again until next week, so i'm looking for a heads up.
instead of asking Yahoo, ask your specialist.

High platlet count does not always mean cancer, only the doctor can tell you that you have it or not.
However, if you do have a high count, some doctors advise you donate them to help out patients that do have low platelet counts due to cancer.
My son was diagnosed with leukemia and the first week was extremely hard to keep blood in him. They had to spacifically typr a bag of platlets to him. Once they did that and he recieved it, the bood was not just being eaten up bt the cancer. Pre platlets he went through 25 units of blood, after the platlets 3 units.
You can help your self by keeping your platlet count at a healthy level and also help save the life of a caner patient.
I also worked for a blood bank for a year after this, and they do this on a regular bases. You can donate whole bood and platlets through your local blood donation center.
