blood platelets and hiv

Oct 21, 2012

once you have begun to lose platelets is any way to replace them?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Assuming you are talking about a low platelet count associated with HIV infection, the answer depends on how low the platelet count is, and whether you are on HIV treatment or not. There are several reasons for why the platelet count could be low. Some are related to HIV infection and some are not. In addition, it is also important to know how low the platelet count is currently; to know how significant the problem is and whether the platelet count needs to be increased urgently or not.
