Hello Almirakei, Thank you for the question.
Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) is a condition of low levels of platelet cells (blood cells that play a role in the process of blood clotting so that bleeding can be prevented) which is characterized by symptoms of bruising or easily bleeding bodies. The exact cause of this condition is not known with certainty however, it is thought that this condition is related to an autoimmune condition that is the immune system that attacks platelet cells because it is considered as a dangerous thing for the body. In addition, ITP can also be triggered by the following conditions:
Viral infections, more common in ITP in children
other autoimmune diseases such as lupus
Symptoms that can appear in patients such as easy bruising, nosebleeds, bleeding gums, blood spots on urine or stool, more menstrual bleeding in women, and fatigue easily. To diagnose ITP, doctors need to do a physical examination and supporting examinations such as blood tests and spinal cord examination. If proven to have experienced ITP, the patient will be treated with several drugs depending on the severity of the patient's condition. In mild ITP, no special treatment is needed. This condition is not influenced by food intake so in general, there are no special restrictions for people with ITP.
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a condition caused by weakening of the muscles of the lower esophagus so that stomach acid can both from the stomach to the esophagus, causing irritation in the walls of the esophagus and causing symptoms. Some of the symptoms that can be caused by this condition are heartburn or middle chest that feels hot or burning, shortness of breath, flatulence, nausea, vomiting, sore throat, cough, bad breath, belching. GERD sufferers can be treated with lifestyle modifications, diet, and medication. In addition to taking gastric acid regulating drugs (as you mentioned, omeprazole), you are also advised to take the following recommendations:
avoid consuming food in large portions, you should consume food in small portions but more often
avoid consuming spicy, oily and fatty foods
avoid consuming caffeinated, fizzy, and alcoholic drinks
avoid lying down after eating
last dinner should not be too close to bedtime at night, give a break 4 hours before bedtime
avoid using tight clothing in the abdominal area
lose weight if you have excess weight
Please check with your doctor regularly to overcome your condition. The doctor will adjust the drug dose if the symptoms are not well controlled.
Hopefully this information is useful.
