How To Increase Platelet And Leukocyte Levels?
Good afternoon doctor. I want to ask how to raise platelets and leukocytes quickly? For your help, I thank you
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Leukocytes (white blood cells) and platelets (pieces of blood) are blood constituent components that have their respective roles. Leukocytes play a role in inflammatory reactions (inflammation), whether caused by an infection process or not (as caused by allergic and autoimmune reactions). While platelets play a role in the process of blood clotting with the aim of stopping bleeding if there is damage to the blood vessels.
Leukocytes which are below normal are called leukopenia. Leukopenia causes a person to become susceptible to infectious diseases. Leukopenia can occur due to nutritional deficiencies (ie intake of vitamin B12, folate, zinc, and copper), taking certain drugs (such as corticosteroids), chemotherapy, blood cancer and others, you can read in full here.
While platelets that are in amounts below the normal value are called thrombocytopenia. This condition causes a person to experience blood clotting disorders so that bleeding becomes difficult to stop. Thrombocytopenia can occur in viral infections, chemotherapy, radio therapy, leukemia and others, you can read more here.
Leukopenia treatment can be done with medical drugs. However, you can also consume natural food ingredients, boiled chicken eggs, which are already cooked, cooked meat, beans and nuts. The treatment for thrombocytopenia is transfusion, but can also be helped by consuming natural ingredients such as guava, mango, papaya leaf juice and others, you can read in full here.
Thus hopefully useful.
