Umair,

I think T2* is available here as it a form of MRI,go to any MRI center in Faisalabad or Lahore preferably and ask them if T2* ( pronounced tee-two-star) is available.

Umair,

How are you doing?  Have you started your IV desferal yet? 

How is the swelling after reducing your medication?

I think I forgot my brains this week. I had also swelling from desferal, but god knows where. I really should start write about such things to avoid that I cant remember them good enough anymore.

Umair,

Your platelets are elevated - usually they are a little high for thals so your Jan21 results are not concerning.  However, the Mar17 results may be of concern if the elevated platelets persist at this level.    Are you taking vitamin e?

I dont see anything wrong. I am bit suprised actually. I have been told that thals also have strange MCV, MCH, MCHC.... yours look normal to me. My are always normal.

I always wanted to know what 'WBC' is...  :wink

Owh, I read Sharmin's post. I thought you dont have a spleen anymore??? My platelets are always very high, because there are missing my spleen.

What has vit. E to do with it?

Umair,

Your ferritin is still steadily dropping, which is good news. You are finally getting down into a range where the chelators will start making a serious impact on organ iron load, so keep up the good work.

The platelets are high, but until you see a repeat of this high reading I would not worry. Platelet test is one of the most inaccurate of all tests and relies greatly on the skill of the tech reading the test. Techs not familiar with thalassemia will often count the small red blood cells as platelets, so the reading can be far from reality. Platelet levels also vary greatly from test to test, so I always say wait until you see two high tests in a row before getting concerned. I know a lot of people who have spent a month worrying, only to see the level drop back down with the next test. I highly recommend vitamin E and one property it has is that it is a blood thinner, so keep taking E daily. Your white cell levels are high but that is expected when fighting infections.

There is also a possibility that this is related to malaria. Malaria tends to exhaust platelets, which then tend to aggregate in the blood until removed. This could cause a temporary increase in what is observed in platelet counts. This should level off as your body cleans out the old platelets. Again, make sure you are taking vitamin E daily.
Andy

All we are saying is give thals a chance.
