Platelet Count Is Low. Any Concern?


#1

Hi guys,

This was just my regular GP’s bloodwork, not my urologist who takes care of my TRT (20mg test cyp subQ EOD). Everything was in normal range for this panel except for PLATELET COUNT. You guys see anything that raises concern?

They’re only slightly low, obviously. What are they usually? Your blood will not clot as easily with lower platelets. Do you bruise easily, gums bleed, nose bleeds, dark stool? There are a lot of causes, from minor to serious. Some medications can be the cause. Your doctor would be the one to run it down, which likely means a repeat CBC.

Thank you highpull! Nothing to worry about. :)))
