Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
In general, the recommended diet for patients with ITP (immune thrombocytopenic purpura) is a whole and clean concept. Whole means that patients need to choose foods that are not packaged or processed. This is useful to give the body more energy intake and prevent complaints from weakness. Therefore, recommended foods include:
Whole fruit (not served as fruit juice)
Vegetables, especially green leafy ones
Chicken without skin, for example the chicken breast
Fish, for example: salmon
Healthy sources of fat, for example: avocados, olive oil
Low-fat dairy products
When consuming vegetables and fruit, it is advisable to choose organic products, namely fruits and vegetables that have fewer pesticides.
Meanwhile, patients with ITP are also advised to avoid foods that can aggravate the symptoms of ITP. If the patient does not yet know which foods can trigger symptoms, it is advisable to make a food journal / journal so that he can trace back any food eaten and is associated with changes in the frequency or severity of symptoms of the disease. In general, some foods that are recommended to be avoided because they can trigger ITP symptoms include:
Saturated fats, for example: whole milk products (which are not low in fat)
Oil not derived from plants, for example: butter, margarine
Fruits and vegetables that have a blood-thinning effect (thin the blood), for example: tomatoes, onions
