Hi All...I posted earlier last year that my oncologist mentioned that I have very early stages of CLL. My blood counts have maintained steady for this entire time with exception of my platelet count. I'm told normal range here is 150,000 to 450,000. My platelet count for 10 months remained between 35,000 and 45,000 till last month. In November it went up to 56,000 and in December it went up to 83,000. I take it this is a good thing, but curious on the 50,000 jump or is this a fluke? I don't see my Doc until the end of Febuary and will have a blood check at the end of January. The only thing I changed to my diet which is fairly healthy was to eat green apples, added shrimp and eliminating dark diet cola. Has this happened to others with platelets? And does the diet affect anything at all? I have had "No Alcohol" for one year plus one month. Thanks... Mitch
