I want to ask, my child has a high platelet disease. She has a fever, she has been given medication but there is no lack of docs. What do you think the natural medicine for reducing platelets is?
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. High platelets or thrombocytosis is a condition where the number of platelets in the blood increases above normal levels. Platelets are also called pieces of blood, and are one component of blood that functions in the process of blood clotting, by sticking together to inhibit blood clotting.
Regarding your question, please note that platelet examination is only a specific investigation, which means that the results of these findings will be used to support the diagnosis. So there is no thrombocytosis, which is a disease characterized by thrombocytosis. Then, there are various causes of thrombocytosis in a person, namely:
Mutations or changes in the shape of genes
Various types of infections
Lack of iron
Bone marrow abnormalities
Side effects of consumption of certain drugs
And there are many other reasons for certain types of cancer. Therefore, it is important to know in advance what are the possible causes, then determine the treatment, regardless of whether it is natural or artificial. Our advice, you should check your child at a pediatrician first, for a thorough examination. Only then will the possible causes be known, and what is the most appropriate treatment for the condition.
Meanwhile, no need to worry too much, if you have a fever, compress your forehead with a warm compress, give lots of fruits and vegetables, increase your consumption of water, make sure the cleanliness of your body, hands and the environment where you live is maintained, keep away from dust, pollution and smoke , and immediately consult a doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
