Question

Is there any disease caused by more or lack of platelets?


Solution

yes.


when platelet count is low:  Thrombocytopenia.

Thrombocytopenia is a condition in which you have a low blood platelet count. Platelets (thrombocytes) are colorless blood cells that help blood clot. Platelets stop bleeding by clumping and forming plugs in blood vessel injuries.

when platelet count is more:  Primary thrombocythemia

Primary thrombocythemia is a rare blood clotting disorder that causes bone marrow to produce too many platelets. It’s also known as essential thrombocythemia.
