My daughter was diagnosed couple weeks ago with JAK 2. First thing he ordered was a bone marrow biopsy. We haven’t gotten the results of that yet. He started her out with IV Iron and we’re waiting to talk to him about the test results

The Bone Marrow procedure is a first step. He should also do a molecular panel to determine if any other genes have mutated. It is common for several genes to mutate. The JAK2 mutation usually causes a high platelet count. I have the JAK2 mutation and the SRSF2 and SFB31 gene mutation. The molecular panel identified those two mutations. So my original diagnosis of Essential Thrombocytosis (ET) changed to MDS/MPN-RS-T after the molecular panel results came back. Good luck.
