I seriously doubt eating anything will dramatically change my blood composition in under 24 hours but whatever. I'm having Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections (you can see what its all about here http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=lnOEgN1dKTo) for my damaged menisci tomorrow morning and just thought it would have been good to boost my platelet concentration before hand, I made the appointment today and didn't expect to be able to get in straight away.
Anyway, there's a chance I'll have to have a second or third injection treatment a few months down the track, so what would be good foods to consume to increase my platelet count leading up to it? Would fasting prior to the treatment be advised or should I have a big ass bacony breakfast?
Secondly, would taking Omega 3 supplements be ill-advised? Given that Om3 is an anti-inflammatory, and I assume inhibits the healing response.

i'd suggest researching vitamin k2. wikipedia mentions it can reverse the anticoagulation (i.e. platelet formation ability of plasma) effect of patients who are taking warfarin. i'm not sure if that'll help out, but it could be a start.
