| | High Mean Platelet Volume
Here is my latest blood work:
MCV: 77 (lower limit :80)
MPV : 18 (Upper limit :10.4)
Platelets: 159K (Limits 150-450 K)
I sometimes get tiny blood from my mouth without any reason. Both my father & brother have similar problem. That is, they get blood from nose.
Now, my problem: high MPV of even 11 or 12 is a cause for concern for stroke/MI. with 18 as my MPV, I should have been dead. How to decrease MPV? I also have GERD. Hence it may be difficult for me to use ASPRIN. Is it possible to reduce MPV with ibprofin or something like this.
