This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Platelets are a type of blood cells required to stop bleeding when you cut yourself.
Too low platelets increases the risk of bleeding.
The bleeding can be minor or major lik from intestine or in the brain for example.
Platelet level can be low due to the medication side effect, recent infection, autoimmune disorder or from certain types of cancers.
Hence, further evaluation is required by a specialist called hematologist.
Can be treatable depending on underlying cause.
It was my pleasure to help you today.
