Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Thank you for your question.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I will be helping you out with your queries.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Platelet count is only slightly on the lower side which is not something to worry about a great deal to worry about at all.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

The ferritin is on the lower end of normal or may be slightly low which means that he is a little low in iron.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

A low creatinine is not something significant and usually only means that the kidney are working fine and nothing to worry about.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So, all in all, there is nothing in these tests to worry about.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Let me know if you have more questions.
