Thrombocytosis and meth

    Question
    i have a patient who uses meth daily.
    he injects and/or smokes it. This was our first
    visit as he was referred to me. His platelet count is elevated. Before I get too carried away, has anyone seen a connection between methamphetamine use and thrombocytosis? I seem to only be running into thrombocytopenia in my research. He also has AIDS with a Nadir of 24 2% HIV RNA 11,800. Not that this means anything.

    Thank you!
