If you have hellp syndrome what are the things that the Dr's look at on blood lab's to determine if you have it? I only know of the platlets.

Hemolysis(H), Elevated Liver enzymes(EL) and Low Platelets(LP). These can all be detected in blood work. Hope that helps.

They look at your Hematocrits, Liver enzymes and Platelets. HELLP can start out as one being off or all or only 2. Have regular and frequent BW is key to detecting it and monitoring your counts so if something starts to go south, they can intervene but delivery.

There is nothing on my labs that say liver enzymes. What am I looking for with Liver enzymes?
