lab test

May 1, 2004

Dear Doctor can you pls. help me a little _ 20+ yrs poz _ i am not feeling well and beeing in India - had some preliminary tests taken - how serious is it when 'platelet count' is .7 and pvc/haematocrit 38% and mch is 33.3% - no energy and very strong diarreah and eosinophil 8% Have to wait 4 weeks for my return flight. I hope to hear from you. Thank You!

Response from Dr. Holodniy

I am not sure what that platelet count means. The other values are OK. Given the eosinophil count and diarrhea, it sounds like there may be a parasite infection going on.

Seeking help with my next option
