What tests did your haemotolgist order to diagnose ET? I'm under 40 and have had high platelets counts for several years albeit went largely unnoticed until recently. Some of the higher counts were discounted due to infection / inflammation markers however more recent tests have no such indicators just the high platelet count. I ha e no other known health issues - cholesterol, iron levels are fine and no diabetes.
Bloods have been sent for JAK2 and CALR tests. Ultrasound and x-ray for spleen size but that appears normal.
If one of the JAK2 or CALR markers come back as positive is that the end of testing or will a bone marrow test be completed?
At what point will a diagnosis of ET be made / ruled out?
