I am an old patient of Dr. Brenda??s. I had not seen her for quite some time and I have been sick for the past year. I have been in and out of hospitals with a variety of heavy duty medications including steroids. I have had blood transfusions from once to a couple of times a week. I have to get my platelets checked often. I started back up in December 2004 and my platelets were at 23. After four weeks of adjustments for the first time, I was able to go one month without a transfusion. My blood count started improving. My platelets started to increase to 66 and to 130! How great was that. My energy level went up and I felt great.
