It's been a little over 2 weeks since my first MPN doctor prescribed me with Pegasys which I decided to put off. I was debating for a while and speaking with another MPN specialist, I am going to start my peg interferon treatment this week. My platelets have increased from the 800s to now 960. I had some questions regarding the most recent blood work that I had done. Was wondering if anyone had any take on what could be causing some of these results to be out of the normal range.
- Ferretin went from 7 to a 4.6 from Aug. to Sep. respectively.
- LD results at 288. (previously 184, 185, 213)
- Aspartate Aminotrans = 76
- MCH = 26.7
- MCV = 80.1
- Iron = 36 ug/dL
- Iron Saturation = 9.3%
- Basophil Asbolute # = 0.10
My doctor said I was not anemic and that's all I have to go off of. I don't know if these are all values that just point to my ET diagnosis after having had a stroke in January and the increase of platelets.
Nervous about how I will react to the low dose of peg this coming week.
Appreciate your input!
