A 29-year-old female asked:

What does it mean when your platelet levels are too low?

At risk for bleeding: Platelets are the cells in your blood line to help your blood to clot. When they are low, you may bruise easy and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. You need to follow up with your doctor to evaluate for a cause of your low platelets.
