Re: The latest... platelets
I am assuming you have went in to get checked by a doctor, but it seems you have celiac disease due to your high platelet count and indigestion. Gluten-free diets are excellent ways to stabilize your blood cell counts. Foods with gluten contain proteins that actually help in the over-production of platelets and their effects. You are having indigestion because your small intestinal lining is negatively reacting with the gluten proteins, causing ineffective absorption of nutrients that keep you healthy. I know it may be tough to get used to, but a gluten free diet will make you feel like a new person after just a few days! I had a professor with celiac disease and she said it really wasn't that bad because she had to eat healthier foods at the same time since she always had to think about what she was going to eat! Good luck and if you have more questions, ask away!
