Hi I was wondering if anyone had opinions or experience on having a couple of alcoholic drinks with a low platelet count. My daughter is currently sitting with a count of 6 and its coming up to the festive season and she would like to go out with friends, she is only 22 and has steered clear of alcohol since being diagnosed in April (except for a couple in October when she then landed in hospital with an intercranial bleed although doctors told us there was no link, thankfully she is okay)Can anyone let me know if she will be safe to have only one or two to celebrate Christmas and New Year. We are very skeptical as her platelet count hasn't been in double figures for sometime and she seems to be refractory to most treatments and she is living a very safe life at the moment letting ITP control her life, as she is young, I as a mother want her to enjoy life but also I want her to be safe. I would be grateful for views on this.
