    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?


High Platelet Count

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Saw my hematologist yesterday and I have "High platelet count". Dr. says it could be related to anemia (how I was originally diagnosed) or "other causes". (Scary). I have to wait a week for ferritin results and then he'll proceed with other tests, if necessary. I'm also waiting for approval from insurance co. for a capsule endoscopy. My GI doc finally suggested this because my stomach has been hurting for several months. (He told me to "get a grip"). I'm really frightened because I feel I've been hurting all these months and now something turns up in my blood work. When I researched thrombocytosis (high platelets) and celiac, there is a possible connection. Anyone else had this experience?
