Hi Lida Rose,

You haven't told us much about yourself, so it's hard to give advice. Cirrhotics often have low platelets. Can you tell us your levels? Cheers.

Anyone here ever have experience with this? I'm not taking interferon trearment, but platelets are dropping...

Also red pin dots on shins. ankles, recurring small bruises...

I will see a hepatologist in a couple weeks, but I'm curious to know if anyone else has ever dealt with this...

Thanks.

Lida
