Hello Herni, Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com
The platelet aggregation test is a test that is done to determine the level of your blood's ability to clot. The results of the examination will usually show an increase, normal and decrease, and if the result of your platelet test is hyperaggregation, it means that your blood clots quickly, if there is an injury and you are at risk for heart attack, stroke, or blockage of blood vessels in the legs. the factors that cause this condition are:
We recommend that you consult the results of this examination to the doctor who asked you to do this examination or to a hematologist, and the conclusion is that the doctor who examines your physiology knows better, because a diagnosis cannot be confirmed with just one supporting examination. and if you do have platelet hyperaggregation, your doctor will usually give you antiplatelet drug therapy, for example aspirin, clopidogrel, cilostazol, ticlopidine.
Some of the things you can do are:
Get enough rest
Avoid activities that risk causing injury
