I think it is all related in the bone marrow.
the bone marrow makes red, white cells and platelets.
the bone marrow puts the iron into red cells.
platelets are key in clotting.
she might need more bone marrow studies, bone marrow biopsy, flow cytometry studies and cytogenetic studies of the bone marrow to see what is going on in the marrow.
it may be autoimmune disorder attacking all of the cells in the bone marrow.
she might need to go on steroid therapy to help suppress the immune system to help the bone marrow to work properly.
