Laboratory Blood Test
Laboratory test results are reported to your physician along with 'reference ranges' of the results of your Blood tests that assist in accurately assessing and interpreting the results of the testing. Every test is different, and each test needs to be viewed in the context of differences in test methodologies employed by the testing laboratory. Other important considerations are differences in groups of individuals such as: children, women, men, age groups, the population norms in the country of testing, and racial and ethnic factors.
Platelet Testing
Platelet Testing
Platelet testing is a Blood test that is often used by doctors. First let’s define platelets. Platelets are very small cells in the Blood. These clump together at places where injury to Blood vessels occurs. They are the basis of the Blood clot that normally forms when the skin is broken. A Blood test revealing a low platelet count can make us vulnerable to bleeding, sometimes even without an injury that we see. Some of the causes of a low Blood platelet count include autoimmune diseases, where the effected individual produces an antibody to his or her own platelets, chemotherapy, leukemia, viral infections and some medicines.
