charlotte (1 year ago):

Hi Ive been reading your study on low platelets in urinary tract infections.
I have just returned from the doctor who did a full blood and urine analysis.
The results say I have a urinary tract infection, and has prescribed medicine. Also my platelet count is at 67. I believe the normal ranges are 140-450.
Is this due to the infection?
I also noticed that 1 in 9 of the people with the urinary infections that you tested also suffer from anxiety too.
Do you believe there is a link between anxiety and the urinary infections.
I would appreciate your response.
Thanks Charlotte
