Hi, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das
First of all, a single platelet count
of 116 is not a criteria to call anybody as thrombcyopenic.
In the automated cell counter, platelet count seem to be low in many condition but after this one freshly prepared direct peripheral blood film must be examined and platelet should be counted.
If that comes low then it should be considered abnormal. And then a bonemarrow study should be done. It will confirm what is the problem.
