Low MPV
I just got the results of my blood test back and it indicated that I have a low MPV (6.0)
Should I be concerned about this?
Thank you

Hi there.

All lab test results should be interpreted with caution, and should be in context with the patient's symptoms, clinical manifestations, and what the doctor suspects.

A low mean platelet volume means that the platelets are smaller in size compared to the usual.  Again, this may not really mean anything significant if you have no symptoms such as petechial rashes or bleeding.

If ever you have these symptoms, it is also best to have the platelet function tested through a test called bleeding time.

Regards.
