I’m 47yo and I’m feeling good so far. I have been diagnosed with essential thrombocytosis 2019 and exercise regularly (brisk walk) and eat moderately well. Only slightly dizzy/off balance sometimes. I take vitamin B and K. What by-counter product should I take besides that? Some says Cardiprin but other say Caspirin? Are there any alternative treatment for Essential thrombocytosis? Thanks in advance.
