Question 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.

Ibuprofen has the same risk factors for causing bleeding that aspirin has. Consult your doctor about this issue, it is very technical and the questions can not be answered at all by internet. This is not a situation where you would self medicate.

Wink Re: High Mean Platelet Volume

well, most of the people on this board consult DOC. But, they want to get more educated about their problems because DOC's may not have the time, patience to explain everything.
