[QUOTE=DavidBod]Mom’s just a bit of haematology. Red cells are red, shaped like doughnuts, a torus to the mathematician; they carry oxygen on the pigment haemoglobin to supply oxygen to body tissues.
White cells are a variety of clear envelopes with granular nuclei; some are T cells, some are B cells, as a group these are granulocytes dealing with defence and immunity; another group of white cells are monoytes, envelopes with a single robust nucleus, these are the rubbish carts for removing waste material resulting from the work of the granulocytes.
Finally there are platelets which provide some of the factors needed to cause blood to clot and stop bleeding.
Excess platelets (600-1000) is thrombocythaemia, it is only significant with abnormal looking platelets, an abnormal bone marrow and absence of the Philadelphia chromosome. DocDavid[/QUOTE]
Can the cold sweats be explained by the high platelets as in your explanation of the the red cells? Carrying oxygen to the body tissue- to much oxygen in the blood will give you excessive sweats??? Does this make sense?
