I haven't been diagnosed with PA. I have hashimotos but Levothyroxine hasn't relieved the fatigue so I'm exploring what else could be doing on.
I have parietal cell antibodies, which i know can have an impact on b12 absorption (although my GP says these antibodies are meaningless). My b12 was around 330 so i started using a b12 oil and a folate supplement.
However, my main question is whether anyone knows whether the fact that my platelet count is always low is an indicator of anything?
It's not breathtakingly low, it's in the range that's below what it should be but doesn't cause a problem - always between 100 10*9/L and 130 10*9/L (range 150-450)
I found some blood test results from about 10 years ago and saw that was already a problem back then, and has been consistently below range every time I'm tested for the last 3 years.
While i know this isn't that low, and may mean absolutely nothing like the doctor says, I just wondered whether anyone would suggest it might be indicative of anything?
Thanks in advance!
