Thrombocytopenia: platelet count is the balance between production (by the Bone Marrow) and consumption. Depending on the cause of Thrombocytopenia you can determine if it is curable or not. If the cause is reversible, YES it is curable. Causes such as low B12/Folate ,or some types of hypothyroidism are reversible and correcting these causes may lead to cure.

LOW Platlet count: 'thrombocytes' are platelets and 'penia' means low in the blood. A low platelet count is generally a 'bone marrow problem' where production is decreased due to tumor (e.g. Leukemia), infection (e.g. Viruses) or toxins (alcoholism) and other diagnoses. Another cause of thrombocytopenia is a clotting problem where platelets are consumed (used up) as in a condition (d.I.C.).
