High Platelets
Hi,

I was diagnosed with a high platelete disorder a few years back, and I was wondering if there is any other treatment for it other than Agrylin? Is there no cure? or no known medication used to fix the problem? Like homeopathic medications? Any advise?

Dear High platelets
If you have Thrombocytosis there are quite a few options available: read more on http://www.netdoctor.co.uk/diseases/facts/thrombocytosis.htm
I would not go for homeopathic medication in this disease. It is something that can be managed and that may not reduce your life expectancy if well treated.
A Hematologist will be the right specialist to be with.
