An elevated platelet count means that your blood is thick - and Lyme is far from the only thing that causes it. My husband is disabled due to a condition called Factor V (think Factor 5), which is a vascular issue with higher than normal clotting factor (platelets). He had blood clots from hip to ankle in both legs and each lung was 70% full of blood clots as well.
Does this happen with Lyme? Yes - but it's far from the only thing that causes it.
Many people with Lyme take things that will help to thin the blood - herbs like turmeric, enzymes like serrapeptase or nattokinase, and even some prescript
ion meds can help. It helps get the meds to the extremities and through the smaller vessels in the body - which is necessary to beat Lyme.
