Common Questions and Answers about Blood platelets vitamins


1722607 tn?1335751458 What are good vitamins/supplements to take? I'm not in treatment yet, and wanted to know what I can take while waiting to treat. I've heard people mention milk thistle. What about vitamin c or d?
Avatar n tn Problem is now my HMO has decided they can't re-treat because at last check my platelets were at 49. What does this mean for me and should i start worrying about bleeding. Also is there anything I could take ,like procrit to help my blood and energy level, real lethargic of late. Doc doesn't seem too concerned but I am.
Avatar m tn which makes the spleen continue to enlarge....and the platelet count continue to drop. Platelets in the blood causes your blood to clot if a blood vessel is cut. They have no affect on how you feel. If a person's platelets count goes down below 25,000 is there may need to intervention. Intervention is only a temporary fix. Platelets will start to drop again a day or two after treatment. The only treatment is either a platelet transfusion or drugs that can raise platelets. You need neither.
1475202 tn?1536274577 You have plenty of platelets to properly clot your blood. The biggest issue with low platelet counts is that hepatitis C treatment that includes interferon reduces platelet counts even more and may reduce the platelet count to dangerously low levels below 20,000 in cirrhotics.
Avatar n tn You are seeing the Gyn/Onc on Friday, and he best be honest with you. Do they know why you are losing blood and your platelets are going up? That doesn't usually occur with OC, unless we are on chemo or had surgery, maybe you also need a hematologist. Keep us posted good luck and report her.
Avatar f tn my body just aches all the time, i only feel better when i double up on vitamins.since then i have had blood work done 3 times and my platelets are climbing and sometimes they go down a little bit, but slowly keep coming up. my white blood count was normal but over the last 3 weeks they shot up by 3000. i have been tested ofr hiv 5 times and the last test being on the 14th of march, they are all negative. i was concerned due to a very low risk possible exposure not certain.
1654058 tn?1407162666 But maybe you can get back up to close to the platelet count where you started from before treatment. Remember platelets only clot blood they don't affect how you feel. Can you put makeup on your bruises to cover them for now? I'l' see if I can get any info on bruising and how long that hangs around cause every one post transplant is pretty bruised up for a while also but then their skin clears up. Ciao.
Avatar f tn Interferon can cause myelosuppression (bone marrow suppression) which results in a reduced number of platelets, red blood cells and white blood cells circulating in the blood. Interferon is the primary cause of decreased platelet count that often occurs during treatment.
Avatar f tn So when they tell me I'm taking too many vitamins I tell them they didn't see me when I turned gray and my BP was 60/40 and my pulse was 44. Desperate people do desperate things.
Avatar n tn I just got back my 1 month CBC blood test, my HGB has gone up from 11.1 to 12.5 and my platelets are normal and so is the rest of the blood work. The vitamins I take are the following: Vit, B,C,E,selenium, zinc,b-12 (sublinquinly), folic acid, potassium (my potassium was too low before treatment so I included potassium), it worked my potassium is fine. I can't say whether this vitamin regime helped with my blood numbers, but I guess it didn't do harm either.
Avatar n tn Riley also says that while patients with chronic hepatitis C usually have mild elevations in liver enzymes in their blood, after taking the over-the-counter Ibuprofen they experience a ten-fold rise in their enzymes, suggesting significant liver injury. He adds that if too much medication is taken, the patient risks speeding up the process of going from chronic hepatitis to cirrhosis of the liver.
Avatar n tn and it can help to keep some of the drug complications( thrush, yeast infections, etc.. at bay and proteins are important for platelets and blood building!! but animal proteins are hard on yor liver... anyway.. good luck... do alot of research and look back at why Txs failed for you.. there maybe a reason, or there may be none.. but try again...don't ever give up.. take care...
Avatar n tn Hi: My dad just had his blood test done twice. both time the platelets level is very high. one 700, the other 800. He doesn't take any medicine except for multi vitamins. He had hypertitis B when he was young. and now the surface antigen is reactive. other than that he doesn't have other problem known. What could be the problem? The doctor told him to do another test in 6 months to see whether the level. However, we feel it uncomfortable.
1964979 tn?1325541625 hang in there buddy... my platelets have dropped from 105 to 59, just had my 8 week blood test yesterday. i've been taking ibruprofen everyday for the past 4 weeks, i read that vitamin C is good for raising platelets, but I was told no vitamins on my rescue study...going to call the nurse right now...
3093770 tn?1389742726 Research shows that certain vitamins and supplements in certain doses interfere with the HCV tx meds. Platelets are in a class of difficult issues, and I don't think our doctors are stopping or foregoing HVC tx to save one's liver/life just to protect mainstream medicine against non-mainstream medicine known to actually increase platelets. I don't think they would put people through transfusions if there were a better alternative.
Avatar n tn The liver bio showed micronodualr cirrhosis with moderate inflammatory activity. In all the blood work done I show the Platelets Count higest at 102 and lowest at 40. Glucose also seems to be high on most test One person we know said that the counts level off when no acohol is consumed but I have not read anything about that anywhere. Drinking stopped completely when the news arrived we had this. The current doctor is a Gastroenterolist who will not treat with a low platelet count.
Avatar f tn Red blood cells, platelets, procrit, nuelasta, chemo, red blood cells, platelets, procrit, nuelasta, Chemo? Seems to be a theme for me the last 2 months. Does anyone one have natural solutions to raise cbc levels ?
451053 tn?1237581349 That was really bad for me, and the only time that I needed transfusions for red cells and platelets. I don't take any vitamins or supplements, just eat healthy, which Iv'e always done in the past too. Some ladies with this cancer refrain from eating red meat, but my Oncol. has told me to ensure that I do have it 2-3 times each week, to keep the red cells up. That's good news that your Mum is feeling well after the chemo.
6540441 tn?1382249261 Hi Russel, It sounds like you are certainly well informed about your health and lab results! You are certainly correct in that you need to discuss this with your primary physician as it is impossible to know the whole picture over this forum; however, hopefully I can provide a little bit of help here. The first thing to realize is that lab results that are normal have a wide variation both in the general population and depending on which lab is testing your blood.
Avatar m tn I take 2 tablespoons per day of fish oil to keep my blood from clotting the oil keeps the blood platelets slippery and just about any supplement that starts with a G thins your blood and Natto also helps
179332 tn?1273250959 Pranayam is about getting more oxygen into the lungs and sending it around the body via blood to aid in body repair. With extra oxygen more platelets and red blood cells are formed to build up the immune system.Extra fat is burned to reduce weight. All this happens naturally without side-effects.People with all types of ailments including incurable ones will benefit. This has been practised by sages, but has been simplified and brought to the masses.
Avatar n tn I am so glad to hear that others get it too. I am thin, athletic with low blood pressure. I do have low platelets and have a border line low thyroid problem. Other wise I am in good health.
Avatar n tn His platelet count has been slowly falling and is about at the 50 range right now. My question is now all of a sudden his white blood cell count has dropped to 2.8. Is this a common problem for others with Hep c.? What does this mean for his future health? His health has been on a steady decline. Is this a sign of more failing health with no recovery?
3624762 tn?1349398652 Therefore, you must have normal levels of neutrophils to start interferon. NAME Platelets NORMAL RANGE 140-400 /mm3 DEFINITION These are small blood cells that helps blood clot when injury occurs. EXPLANATION OF TEST RESULT May be low in advanced liver disease, or while on interferon treatment. A low count may increase the chance of bleeding. Therefore, you must have normal levels of platelets to start interferon treatment.

351317 tn?1204755471 Hi, I came across this thread researching Serotonin levels and how to measure them and how to raise them. I have very low levels as per a blood test. The serum blood test is, I believe, as mentioned, measured indirectly. The doctors and psychiatrists I've spoken with don't seem to have any answers to any of my questions, but it doesn't surprise me. They usually aren't the best at pharmacological issues.
Avatar n tn i had sexual intercourse about 7 or 8 times before seeing a doctor. the same occurred except for 2 times, in which no blood appeared. but the majority of times blood came out in the sperm, or only after ejaculation during urination, or both in the sperm and the urine. once i woke up without having had sex that week and urinated blood. i tested my blood, sperm, and urine and the only abnormality was a high psa level. my dr said it is very rare and is that high in 40/50 year old.
