Can people with itp smoke? Is this disease contagious?

1 Answer:

Hi.


ITP (Idiopatic Trombocytopenic Purpura) is a condition where there is a decrease in platelet levels in the body. The decrease in platelet count can be caused by autoimmunity, in which the body's immune attacks its own platelet cells. ITP can usually occur after exposure to a virus such as infection with mumps, chickenpox, or after a respiratory infection. ITP is also more common in women. ITP that is mild and does not cause symptoms usually does not require special medical therapy.


ITP is not contagious. ITP sufferers may smoke, there is no contraindication between ITP and smoking. But disarnakan so that you don't smoke, because smoking can damage the heart system and blood vessels.
