Platelet Low Count Causes
See below: Low platelet count, thrombocytopenia, may be due to low production, as in bone marrow failure, excessive alcohol intake; increased destruction as in idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura or drug related platelet destruction. Enlarge spleen form any cause may lower platelet count. See this site for more info. Http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/diseases-conditions/thrombocytopenia/basics/definition/con-20027170.
If there is bleeding: The low platelet count itself will not cause the dizziness or fatigue. However, a low platelet count can lead to spontaneous bleeding. This lowering of the blood count can lead to low blood pressure and dizziness. Furthermore, the low platelet count often is not in isolation. There may be a panctyopenia meaning low red and white blood count. This anemia can lead to dizziness/fatigue. See doctor.
Is it true that a very low platelet count can be caused by (a) a viral infection and (b) a bacteria in the blood that falls short of sepsis?
Basically no: If your platelet count is low (under 90, 000 or so calls for. A workup), the stupidest thing that anyone can possibly do is say "it's probably a virus" or blame a bacterium that isn't cultured and isn't making you sick otherwise. I hope I have not misunderstood. Low platelets is serious, very low levels are often catastrophic, and almost always there's a real illness to find and treat.See 1 more doctor answer

Org/diseases-conditions/thrombocytopenia/basics/causes/CON-20027170 For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats.

Thrombocytopenia: Low platelets (thrombocytopenia) can be caused by many conditions, both benign and malignant. Some people are born with it. Other times it's due to a lab error known as "platelet clumping". Many medications can cause it. There are also a host of serious hematological problems which cause low platelets, such as itp and leukemia. It's very important that low platelets be evaluated by a hematologist.
Numerous Causes: Platelets are a blood component necessary for hemostasis (cessation of bleeding); are produced in bone marrow; activated by blood vessel damage. There are numerous causes for a low platelet count: impaired production (bone marrow, genetic disorders); increased consumption (infections), increased destruction (autoimmune diseases), & more. Evaluation by your doctor is necessary to determine the causeSee 1 more doctor answer

What cause our platelet low and if d reading is jus 99, is it very dangerous n please guide me what type of treatment I can seek n what test I take?
Many causes: Low platelet counts (thrombocytopenia) can be caused by many things. One of the most common causes is itp (immune-mediated thrombocytopenic purpura), where the body makes antibodies that recognize a patient's own platelets. This can be self-limiting requiring no treatment, to requiring strong medicines. A count of 99 (=99000), is not dangerous, but must be monitored. Hem-onc doc can find cause.
No: There is no relationship between your platelet count and body temperature. You could have something else going on, such as a viral illness, that hs caused suppression of your platelet production and can also cause low grade fever. But the low count itself does not cause fever.See 2 more doctor answers
Myriad of things. Sx: There are a myriad of things that can cause low calcium & high platelets. W/o knowing ur symptoms & medical history, it's next to impossible to interpret these results. High platelets can be a "stress" reaction to illness/infection, or a bone marrow prob. Low calcium can b from vitamin D deficiency or low sun exposure (Nordic genes). The most common cause is lab error. TTYD to clarify the resultsSee 2 more doctor answers
Lots causesneed eval: The mild low platelets plus large red cells suggest metabolic effects, including drugs ethanol, etcetera but may also require additional serological hematologic studies to exclude diseases from blood producing organs like the bone marrow, if those former metabolic causes are not present.
Thrombocytopenia: Acute gout, a very inflammatory condition, is usually assoc. With high platelets, also called thrombocytosis. If a patient with Gout is on treatment called allopurinol to reduce uric acid, than a side effect of this medicine is low platelets. But this is rare; would advise a thorough review of all medications and interactions to be sure that there is no unwanted side effects from medicationsSee 1 more doctor answer
