Hello, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das
Look, when a patient has this type of problems, we advise the patent to go for direct smear examination. that means, a slide should be prepared by pricking the finger directly.
This slide should be examined by the pathologist for platelet count
. This is the most reliable test that must be done in a patient with low platelet count.
So, consult with your treating doctor about it.
