Avatar f tn When I was pregnant with my son I had low platelets and my midwife told me that if my platelets were too low I couldn't get an epidural because I could bleed to death,and if I needed to get a c cection then I would have to get put to sleep.

2030686 tn?1351688548 For example, amoxicillin can lead to anemia (low red blood cells), thrombocytopenia (low platelets) and leukopenia (low white blood cells). Red blood cells are responsible for carrying oxygen. White blood cells help fight infection and platelets help in wound healing. Anemia leads to fatigue and shortness of breath. Leukopenia makes you susceptible to infections and thrombocytopenia makes you prone to easy bruising and bleeding. http://www.livestrong.
Avatar f tn Does anyone know if you can do txt with already low platelets? (127) and INR of 1.13? Going to see my Gastro this week and I am sure he is going to propose getting on txt if I am able to with low platelets. From what I understand the txt cause platelets to drop.
Avatar f tn well at my drs appt they drew my blood on Wednesday to check my iron and my platelets and they are still down I've always been low but I just received a call from my dr my iron is at an 8 and my platelets are at 92,000 which are supposed to be at 150,000 plus my due date is until the 27th I'm 37 weeks today' and he says he will check my cervix at my next appt I'll be 37+5 and he will most likely induce me that night or the next day depending if my cervix is opening or not!
Avatar f tn I have had the problem of low blood platelets for years - they go ip and down! Had loads of tests but nothing - but im tired and have lots of head rushes during the day..any ideas what this could be? Recent fbc :- WBC 6.35 RBC. 3.94 Platelets 59 Anyone can help??
Avatar f tn Yes ive had it w all my pregnancys !! Th is one is mt highest im at 108. First one had blood transfusion last one no problems.
Avatar n tn At the hospital, we had discovered that his blood tests had come in already and the results were that his platelets were really low...27. We chose to have my dog stay over night at the hospital to be monitored. One day later, his platelets dropped even more...12 and his red blood cell count was lower than before. We have also been informed that they were giving him more meds. I am so concerned as we haven't gotten any answers yet. How soon til the meds start working?
Avatar m tn Hi, I was wondering what the chances were of having Leukemia or lymphoma with 2 consecutive low platelet counts. For example, 3 months ago they were 135, and now 131. The rest of the blood work comes back in normal ranges. Thank you for any feedback.
7510956 tn?1411671417 Today I received my lab work and it showed my platelets came down to 115. I wanted to know if they can be this low without Cirrhosis?.
Avatar m tn In other words, how low would a doctor allow those levels to get before giving the person platelets or whole blood? Thank you.
Avatar m tn Hello dear and welcome to the medhelp forum. There have been reports and studies analyzing the concomitant role of autoimmune disorders like thyroiditis, idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura along with Multiple sclerosis. Has your neurologist confirmed MS? Are you already on therapy? There have been studies on association of interferon therapy and drug induced idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura. Consult a neurologist for these symptoms and appropriate diagnosis.
Avatar f tn You definately need a good second opinion on this matter. Low platelets, can be found in quite a few illness,s and those need ruling out. Thrombocytopenia, ITP, APS, and also bone marrow conditions. etc etc. I had a low blood platelet count, but it was linked to my auto-immune disease of APS. This needs attention . If they arent clever enough to give you a reason why, then you need someone else. Dont give up searching.
Avatar f tn Essentially Platelets are the glue that holds the blood together. Google it. Low platelets means thinner blood. 44 is very low, normal range is around 150-250. Yes, avoid a serious cut, and definitely avoid head injury or any actions that might cause one. If either happens, call a doctor ASAP. Try to stick in there, with so little time left to go it would be a shame not to complete if all possible. What's your virus count?
545538 tn?1295992017 Kathy, Back in 2003 I was found to have low platelets and sent to a Hemotoligist who dianosed ITP. I had all kinds of test run(including bone marrow biopsy) He never tested me for Hep C even though low platelets is a symptom. Three years later my new primary care Dr. thought that my liver enzymes were a little high and sent off a hep c test and it was positive. My liver specialist thinks that I never had ITP (an autoimmune disease) I was misdianosed.
Avatar f tn He done his hcv RNA, 12 week s after treatment and it was good. Liver enzymes was same as now, slightly above normal and platelets low, but now lower- 58..and was 64. That is a reason we are worried..He is on vegan diet witch means he doesn't eat meat at all. Maybe he must eat some meat for rising platelet count? And he is very tiny, maybe he lost more weight since th. It is not easy to consult doctors in our country.. only if you have extra money..
Avatar f tn It seems that if your platelets were too low, your doctor would tell you on the phone and give you some instructions. Best wishes for a positive appt. on Wed. Keep us posted.
