This is moot: If your platelets consistently run below 100,000, get checked to see whether you have hypersplenism, antibodies on your platelets, or some other cause. Some folks just run them low and it's not a concern. Life's too short to try to guess whether you have increased odds for this-or-that. You're doing a huge favor to yourself by not smoking. Low blood pressure is probably a mythical Dx. Relax.
