Hi, A normal platelet count ranges from 150,000 to 450,000 platelets per microliter of blood. However decrease in 10,000 platelets is insignificant. Foods that can increase platelets are papaya, pumpkin, spinach, bitter lemon, bitter melon, indian gooseberry etc.., but there is no evidence.. Kindly consult Physician for further evaluation....
