Does anyone know what this could mean? We just received a call from our peds office telling us that her platelets are low and that they want to recheck in 4 weeks.
Platelets are needed for clotting.
My father had low platelets for a while. His numbers got better with a macrobiotic diet. Finally I think they figured out that his spleen is bigger than normal, so some of his platelets that you would expect to be in his blood are hanging out in his spleen instead.
If you google it there's lots of reasons why they could be low. Hopefully it's not anything serious. Definitely get the retest.
