Platelets

I was wondering about my platelet level test results. I had blood work done at a health fair at my job and I got my results and they have PAAC for my platelets. Can anyone help me?

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Platelet count helps to detect the count, the number of platelets. The platelet function tests help to study the functioning of the platelets. Various platelet function tests are used to evaluate the ability of platelets to clump together and begin to form a clot. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

well I had it redone and they are saying they are low at 47, i am really confused, I lost this web site and have moved and now have way more health problems, such as two tumors on my salivary gland. so I have know idea what is going on with my body.  I was told before that my platelets were low, but have never had any problems with any surgery I have ever had.  one phlebotomist said that my blood seems to clump quickly and they either need to test it right away or use a special tube to draw the blood in.
