Platelet count...is something happening to me?

I'm wondering if the number of my platelets is normal...can they be different each time I take a blood test, or are they decreasing in number?
I'm a little worried because of this...

September 20th: 248,000
September 27th: 218,000
October 6th: 203,000

Another question...
A 3rd generation ELISA test at 62 days, how reliable is it?
Thanks in advance.

I think it is normal. Not sure why you have your platlettes done that of ten especially since your numbers are so good!?!? Everytime I have mine taken which is once a year it goes up or down. At 50 I was 156000 and at age 58 I was 135000 which is on the low side. I read a lot on it and unless it gets below 100000 no treatment is necessary. Between 130000 and 400000 is pretty normal. Next time you take it, it make increase or decrease a little. What does your doctor think and again why did you get it taken 2 additional times?

Well, it's because I have a HIV scare...and so I've been testing and testing lately...and my last test was at nine weeks.
I was afraid my platelets were going down, but...I guess they can vary a bit, my doctor thinks they're normal...

I'm glad you are alright but I bet you were scared. If the doctor isn't worried then you shouldn't be either. Those numbers look good. Thanks for the info because I couldn't figure it out. I was on hormone shots and when I stopped cold turkey my platlettes went down but your body works in mysterious ways.

Take care, be careful!!!
