I am looking for information concerning foods and vitamin supplements which have the ability to raise one's blood platelet count. Dr has replaced iron, but wants patient to produce platelets on her own. Platelet count at present is 23...should be 100.
Thank you for your time and consideration of this problem.
I'm in Venezuela where there is an epidemic of Dengue. Folks have been using soup of chicken feet, rich in gelatin and plenty of coconut milk to cure this disease which causes a decrease in blood platelet count. In addition, keeping the body fully hydrated either with water of Pedialite is another key factor. Most people who contract dengue don't even bother seeing a physician, they just head out to the local butcher for chicken feet.
My husband is currently experiencing the same issued. He has liver disease that has progressed to the point now that his blood platelate counts were at 16 and after a transfusion they went up to 19. Now they are at 28. If anyone has any answers I would also be grateful for advice. Thank you
I have read many successful reviews of people taking Papaya Leaf Extract. According to the reviews, this stuff have brought up the platelet count in many diff. people. I am currently looking to try it myself. All the best
What natural foods can eat to keep your platelets up ?
I have just recently found out that I have a rare blood disease called TTP that causes your platelets to drop and I wanted to know if there are any natural foods that you can eat to keep your platelets up. Thank you
After reading about treating low platelets with fresh papaya leaf extract Ã¢?? I recommended to a friend to try the dried leaf extract in America to raise her platelets. She brewed the dried leaf and made a strong tea and drank a quart a day for a few week. Her platelet counts came up dramatically and she was able to avoid the blood transfusion that her doctors were ordering.
After this success, I repeated this advice to a number of others who were experiencing the same problems. Each time the platelets came up significantly. I am impressed with papaya leaf and am doing other research on it.
DO YOU HAVE A SPECIFIC BRAND OF DRIED PAPAYA LEAF EXTRACT TO USE, AS I ALSO LIVE IN AMERICA.
I AM ABLE TO FIND PAPAYA LEAF TEA, BUT I AM SURE IT IS NOT NEARLY AS STRONG AS AN EXTRACT.
THANK YOU SO MUCH IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR HELP!!
Take Giloy tablets 1 also called (tinispora in english, search google) tab thrice a day and aloe vera juice (room temperature) also if possible take colostrum capsules 2-3 cap thrice a day before food with one full glass of water.. it helps a lot.
a platelet is a cell. A food will not produce a platelet. There may however, be foods that can help with an underlying condition that is causing a low platelet count. Once that illness or condition has improved the platelet count may come up along with it
The best sources of dietary iron are meat, fish, and poultry (the darker the meat the higher the iron). Fortified grains and cereal products are also good sources.
A high quality supplement can help you to better absorb the iron from these kind of foods.
