Every time you have a cut or bruise in your body, Platelets are known to clot together and prevent or make an attempt to stop the bleeding. When there are not enough platelets in the body, this bleeding cannot be stopped due to lack of clotting. Common symptoms here include simple cuts that continue to bleed in spite of applying pressure, heavy menstrual bleeding, gum bleeding, blood in urine or stool, etc.
HOW IS LOW PLATELETS DIAGNOSED?
