Blood results

Hi all
Just had results of FUll blood count and it shows Hb 11.0…WCC 15.3 platelets 547 and neutrophils 10.1.
I am on warfarin so presumed my platelets would be low not high…can anyone shed some light?

Sorry - I know nothing about bloods!

Aw Karen I am disappointed lol…obviously I know about some but more related to pregnancy and that I am not!! There is a link between low B12 and ms yeah??
Am gonna check those levels too as don’t understand why platelets would be soooooo high…
Regards

Quite a lot of MSers have low B12 levels, but I don't know the figures and haven't looked into it in any detail. I do take a supplement on the basis that it probably won't hurt and just might do some good though - after all, B12 is supposed to be good for cell repair and we certainly need more than our fair share of that!

Just been to doc now and they repeating FBC , thyroid function, B12 and serum ferritin levels…
Went to doc as was worried about tightness am having around my middle…feels tight and tender when I move or laugh as if elastic band round it. Chest is clear and she is none the wiser lol…just going to relax rest of today and forget about work for a day…xxx
