JAK2 Mutation and High Platelet count
I was being treated for low iron – was sent to a Oncology Hematologist- had Iron Infusions – gradually the iron values increased.
Only received an infusion two times.
The doctor is seeing me every 6 months, Platelets are increasing and I was told I was born with the JAK 2 Mutation
apparently never surfaced ever until recently. I was a regular blood donor, and years ago I was needing iron and saw this same type of physician.
For raising Plattlets, eventually I will be put on a medication, he said my count must be 1.000,000 first (one million)
What in blood work determine a Jak 2 Mutation? I have not given blood since the two diagnoses.
Any information of your experiences or knowledge will be appreciated.
