Once diagnosed with Hep C I went through a series of blood test. It
showed that my ATL, enzines, and viral loads were extremely high with a
platelet count of 66. I had a trans jugular biopsy that should stage
3/stage 4. I am soon to start combo therapy. My doctor plans to keep me
on therapy only until my platelets drop to 35-40 then he plans to stop
therapy. My question to you is, why is my platelet count so low? - I
haven't even started therapy yet!
