low platelet count
Jul 23, 2002

I had blood work completed two times l. showed a platelet count of 8l. 2. showed a count of 96. What does a lower than normal platelet count mean. What are the possible causes or consequences? How does one raise a lower than normal count?

Response from Dr. Little

A low platelet count can be related to HIV infection if you are HIV positive. I would need more information to really advise you on the possible significance.

Garlic and drug resistance?
complete resistance for many years
