Platelets are tiny cells that circulate round the body in the blood. They play an important role in blood clotting and fighting infection. Low Platelet count is dangerous for a person. The number of Platelets decrease alarmingly when people suffer from diseases like cancer, dengue, malaria etc.  When people suffer from these type of diseases, the generation of platelets in the patient decreases alarmingly.  Due to this, patients may die.  To avoid this, platelets are given to a person at this point of time. 

On the other side, a normal healthy human being need not do anything to generate more platelets. They generate as a normal process. However, we need to understand that when our health is fine we can donate platelets and we can save lots of people.  If we are healthy, there is no danger or any loss to us in donating platelets. Simple reason!!!! Human Body is such a wonderful machine of God that lakhs of platelets are automatically generated everyday.  Normal , healthy human beings can donate platelets any time . To donate we need not donate complete blood. There are wonderful platelets derivation processes developed. In such process, they take the blood from the person, that blood enters in a machine, that machine extracts the platelets and releases the rest of the blood donated, that blood is again inserted to us. In a nutshell, we have wonderful mechanisms where only platelets are taken and the remaining blood is transferred back to us. 

We donot lose anything in donating platelets, because platelets are automatically generated daily in us, however, this simple and important process stops in people suffering with some diseases. We can save lots of lives by donating platelets. 

There is nothing more pious than saving others lives. Above all, we donot lose anything in donating platelets. So please check with your nearest good, safe blood blank and donate the platelets. Save Lives and Make your life worthy too 🙂 

Have a nice day ahead.
