Do i need to worry about this?
My PCP did a cbc and Platelet count came in at 131,000. He retook a month later, doing a "manual" platelet count test and it came in at 118,000. So now, he has me going to a Hematologist/Oncologist.
Is this something potentially serious?
I have always had hi trigycerides, they were running between 400-700, but now, on meds with change in diet, they are 180 and 220 the last two tests. About 2 years ago, i had to have a cat scan of my bladder area for unrelated issues (negative) it showed a slightly enlarged spleen, i went to hematologist she took bloods and after results said nothing is wrong, it is a clinical diagnosis of enlarged spleen being common in high triglyceride patients.
Also i am on 2000mg a day of Niaspan, plus Lovaza max dosage, and trilipix. Also take prilosec about 3x a week. Could any of this be the cause
