My name is Jim. I m an alcohol abuser --- white wine only. I was told that (this) would lower my blood platelettes (sp?) to the point where I could bleed to death. How low (cbc) do my platless drop before I can t even have a tooth pulled without bleeding to death?
My platelets are 658. Normal aays 140-440
