I need to increase my blood platelets.


Answer by  JodiJ (312)

If you are looking to increase your platelet count, change your diet. Avoid the following types of foods: sugars of almost all types; refined grains, go with whole grain products and unbleached flour; also avoid trans fats that are found in cooking oils and margarine. This also means avoiding most processed foods as they're loaded with all the above.

Depending on the extent of the problem an iron supplement is usually helpful. There are natural sources of iron in raisins as well as cooked beef liver. A doctor in more severe cases may prescribe shots to stimulate the bone marrow to increase platelet procuction.

Blood platelets are a normal byproduct of red blood cell death. The only way to increase your platelet count - except by time - is to have a platelet transfusion.
