In 1997 my blood platelets were tested at 1500. They dropped over the years and leveled out at 480 to 549 since August, 2009. I donated platelets in October 2017. I also donated whole blood in May, 2018. On July 2, 2018 blood work showed my level suddenly at 119. What could cause this type of drop?
