Re: Low ferritan count & high platelet count
You did not say what her labs are. I have had the same problem. When my ferritin was really low, 2, my platelet was around 425. I have also noticed that over the years, as my ferritin get lower, my platelets increase. I would suggest that you take your daughter to a hematologist. While a pcp can take the regular blood test, from my experience they do not really take ferritin below lab range anything to be concerned about. My hematologist says anything below 70 is not good. As for me I am still not sure why my ferritin drops but at least my hematologist keeps my ferritin above 70 with iron infusion.
