I want to ask, my wife has been diagnosed with ITP, my wife has been treated in 2 different hospitals, my wife’s first platelet count was only 41 thousand, after being treated for 5 days she was allowed to go home with a final lab result of only 45 thousand, a week in At home, it turned out that my wife’s platelets had decreased drastically, there was 45k, but when I checked the platelets there were only 10k…then I was treated again for 1 week, only adding platelets to 45k again, how do I increase the platelets to their normal number

Hello good morning Ricky.

ITP (Idiopathic/Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura) is a condition where there is a disturbance in the platelets caused by something that is not known for certain, but it is suspected that an autoimmune condition is one of the causes. ITP is characterized by low platelet levels (below 100,000 / microliter) without any other decrease in blood cells (eg low leukocytes and erythrocytes). Complaints of ITP sufferers include easy bruising, petechiae (red spots on the surface of the skin due to the release of blood cells from the blood vessels), frequent nosebleeds, excessive menstruation, urine with blood, stools with blood, etc.

ITP that occurs in children and ITP in adults with mild conditions usually do not require special treatment. In certain conditions, for example at lower platelet levels, the doctor will provide treatment such as treatment using corticosteroids, intravenous immunoglobulins, thrombopoietin receptor agonists, etc. In severe conditions, surgery can be recommended, namely the removal of the spleen organ (splenectomy), but this action is rarely done because of the high risk of the procedure. With the removal of the spleen, it is hoped that the destruction of blood cells will decrease so that platelets are expected to increase in levels in the blood. After taking treatment for a certain period of time, the platelets will increase by itself. What needs to be done is to carry out regular re-control to ensure platelet levels do not fall to lower levels again. Consult again with the doctor who previously handled your wife to get an answer that suits your wife's condition.

Here are some suggestions for ITP sufferers:

avoid activities that can result in injury always take medication under a doctor's advice (with a doctor's prescription), avoid using antiplatelet (aspirin) and ibuprofen do regular check-ups with the doctor and do regular blood tests if you are pregnant, convey a history of ITP to the doctor who deal with that, hope it helps.

Regards, dr. Denisa
