Thrombocytopenia: you have moderate thrombocytopenia- or low platelet. go to see doctor to find the cause. platelet can be low due to many different things from infection, autoimmune process, certain nutrient deficiency, drug/toxin induced, destruction of platelet, consumption, decrease in production etc. go to see MD to check it out.
