Question by  NZ (26)

My doctor told me I have a low reading of 124 on my blood platelets, what can I do to change this?


Answer by  sanityrose (2664)

Having a low blood platelet count means that your blood is not clotting normally. To increase the blood platelets you may be prescribed prednisone or immunoglobulin. You can also have a blood transfusion. To help, avoid alcohol and any over the counter or prescription medications that may have attributed to the low platelet count.

There is not much other than a platelet transfusion. Low platelet counts can be an indicator for some diseases, including hemophelia and certain leukemias and cancers. If he is not already investigating further, you may want to get a second opinion.

Low normal platelet counts are 145, so 124 isn't critical. Some medications can cause low platelet counts and some disorders. Talk with your doctor and see if this applies.
