I have been successfully maintained on Asacol for five years. No, Asacol will not alter your platelet count. You are probably borderline anemic, which I have been too for a few years now. Many with Crohns suffer with anemia. Not low enough for an iron infusion, but if I were to go lower they would. Good luck!
