Hello!

What is your platelet count?

Have you had diagnosis of ITP??

You can have drop in platelets potentially due to anti-platelet antibodies as possible cause ..

You may have an enlarged spleen as possible cause ..

You would be best it sounds to follow up with hematologist for this problem if not already doing that ..

Your other parameters of your complete blood cell counts are relevant here ...

White cell count and red cell count are relevant ...

I hope that this information is helpful for you

Let me know if you have further questions or concerns

I will be happy to get back with you

I see that you request a phone call and I will post offer for this added service....

Please remember to leave positive feedback

Thank you and Best Regards
