Planets elevate

Posted , 1 user is following.

I have a question about platelets. My platelets in April were 391 in May they where 386 about a week ago they where 403. Back in early March I was told I had low iron. My ferritin was 2 and is now at 20. Im on an Iron pill. The low iron and ferritin was due to a diet I believe. My hemaglobe was 11.5 and is now 13.3. I had bilateral pes in November of 2016. Was on thinners for 6 months and then taken off in may 2017. They are not 100% sure where my pes came from but possibly kicking a door 20 or 30 times. My mom is on blood thinners for life as she said she got pes a couple times in her early 30s. Im 37 in a week. She says she does not have a blood clotting disorder but my mom never gets checked out by a doctor. I was tested in 2016 after my pes for clotting disorders and I don't have any. My pulmonologist I just started seeing in the middle of this year also said he ran test for certain clotting disorders and did not find anything. My pulmonologist also said when I had him read my ct scan from 2016 that he can't tell if I had a pe or not due to the ct scan being not so good. But none the less I have to assume I had one. My sister also had a dvt. But she also had surgery a few weeks prior. Can anyone help me understand why my platelets would go up and down and do I have anything to worry about with getting another clot being my platelets being 390s to 403s? Or is it due to my iron?
