Hello wonderful people. I was diagnosed with Jak2 positive at age of 32 (couple months ago). Allele Burden %10. Only aspirin. I reviewed old lab tests and they all show high platelets (400-500) hgb (16.5 limit for males is 17.5) red blood cell count (5.5 to 5.8 limit for males 6) hct 47-49 (51 upper limit). So my red blood cells are in range (upper limit) but according to WHO 2016 guidlines for mpns, PV diagnoses is hgb > 16.5 for men or HCT > 49. So i am boderline on that as well. And i really do think those guidlines are a bit low since any person (male) can have them since they are within normal ranges.
So my question is, is it possible to have PV is such numbers? Is it Normal for ET to have such numbers? I am totally confused at the moment.
