Re: Low Mean Platelet Volume (MPV) ?
I was diagnosed with gall bladder stones 2 years ago. I opted not to have my gb out, which means that sometimes I have small gb attacks that affect my liver enzymes, etc. I also have some bowel issues. I need to eat alot of fiber, yogurt, fresh fruits and take some flax oil supplements to keep myself regular.
I've been extremely tired lately so I went in for some blood work. The results show Total CO2 as high (31) and MPV was low (7.6). The doctor told me that was normal. I'm still wondering why I'm so tired all the time. I also wonder if a correlation exists between bowel issues, the gall bladder and low MPV counts.
