I got my mom on spirulina and coconut water on our way to her family doctor as we left the ER after 8 hours of waiting and was told to take Tylenol. Her family doctor also prescribed Tylenol.

Thrombocytosis (or thrombocythemia) is the presence of high platelet counts in the blood, and can be either primary (also termed essential and caused by a myeloproliferative disease) or reactive (also termed secondary). … Thrombocytosis can be contrasted with thrombocytopenia, a loss of platelets in the blood.

However, counts of under 50,000 are usually monitored with regular blood tests, and those with counts of under 10,000 are usually treated, as the risk of serious spontaneous bleeding is high with such a lowplatelet count. Any patient experiencing severe bleeding symptoms is also usually treated. The threshold for treating …

Essential thrombocytosis – Wikipedia

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Essential_thrombocytosis

Essential thrombocytosis. Essential thrombocythemia (ET) is a rare chronic blood condition characterised by the overproduction of platelets by megakaryocytes in the bone marrow. It may, albeit rarely, develop into acute myeloid leukemia or myelofibrosis.

Low platelet concentration is thrombocytopenia and is due to either decreased production or increaseddestruction. Elevated platelet concentration is thrombocytosis and is either congenital, reactive (to cytokines), or due to unregulated production: one of the myeloproliferative neoplasms or certain other myeloid neoplasms.
