Brief Answer: Possible return of aplastic anemia... Detailed Answer: Hi my dear, If your platelets have been moving downward over the last nine months, I think there would be also decrease in other blood elements. Can you provide the reports of your blood tests you did? That could help me assist you further! If platelets keep moving downward, it might be because of: - aplastic anemia re-appearance - any drug/medication you have been using - common infection you might have been passed - primary biliary cirrhosis and/or drugs you might be using for this (billiary acids/cortisonics) I suggest to discuss with your GI specialist if biliary cirrhosis or drugs you might be taking could be the causes to your low platelet and to take proper treatment according to the cause of such low levels. Hope it was of help! Dr.Sejdini
