There is one more thing that I have to ask:

Does Aloe Vera help to increase platelet counts?

Answer:

Dear Ankit,

There is no scientific evidence behind herbal or food treatments for ITP.

There are people with ITP who have achieved great results just with a macrobiotic diet based only on grain and vegetables but there is no scientific proof.

Aloe Vera may reduce platelet stickiness.

Aloe Vera can cause a reduction in prostaglandin synthesis, which may inhibit secondary aggregation of platelets.

Avoid alcohol because alcohol slows the production of platelets in your body.
