Haematology June 24, 2013 Hb 10.5 Plt 638 WBC 4,8 Neutrophils 1.83 Platelets up sharply since the previous reading, but haemoglobin up from 9.5 to 10.5. Hydroxycarbamide is increased from five to six times a week, hoping to contain the rise in platelets without reducing haemoglobin. WBC within normal range, neutrophils below bottom limit of normal range. Lowered neutrophil count compromises the immune system, but no treatment is being suggested.
