Why Get Tested for Platelet Antibody?
The presence of antibodies means that your immune system is creating antibodies that are attacking the platelets of your blood. People suffering from idiopathic thrombocytopenic pupura or systemic lupus erythematosus may have platelet antibodies. You must go for this test if you experience signs like wounds that bleed longer than normal, frequent nosebleeds, skin that bruises easily and heavy menstrual bleeding.
