can strep throat treated with antibiotic for one week cause high platelet count and high rbc on cbc? Can strep cause high pota

Posted by ann

my son had a fasting cbc done to check for diabetes.

He has been having issues with fatigue and hot flashes.

He had the test done one week after being treated with

antibiotics for strep. His results were high RBC and high Platelet Count.

Also, Potassium high.

The doc feels the test results were from strep. The potassium was just an error.

Any ideas?
