What is ITP

ITP or Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura is a bleeding disorder. It is a rare problem, which is characterized by decreased platelets in the body. Platelets help in the formation of blood clot during any injury but in ITP patient, due to decreased platelet count the formation of blood clot does not occur which results in excessive bleeding and bruising. Bleeding can occur from the nose, gums, bladder, etc.

Red flat spots – These are mostly seen on legs and feet.

Bleeding – Bleeding can occur from the nose, gums and can also be seen in urine and stool. Women suffering from ITP can have prolonged periods.

Ayurvedic perspective of ITP

According to Ayurveda, the three energies form our body – Vata, Pitta and Kapha, when the imbalance occurs between any of them, the disease occurs. ITP is a Raktapittadisorder (Rakta – blood), which occurs due to increased pitta in our body. This aggravation of pitta dosha occurs due to the consumption of pitta provoking foods such as sour, salty and spicy foods. These  foods lead to an increase in Amlabhava, which forms Ama Rasa and vitiates the pitta

Natural Treatment of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura

Overview

Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) is a disorder which is characterized by excessive bleeding and bruising. Due to the low levels of platelets, bleeding occurs. Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura is also called as immune thrombocytopenia. It affects children and adults.  After a viral infection, Children often develop ITP and usually recover without treatment.

If your platelet count isn’t too low & you don’t have any signs of bleeding, you may not need any treatment. The number of platelets may be so low that severe internal bleeding occurs [only in rare cases].

itp-treat

Etiology-Normally the platelet count is 1, 50,000 per micro liters of circulating blood while in ITP platelet count is below 20,000. Normally our immune system helps our body to fight against diseases and infections but in ITP our immune system destroys and attacks its own platelets but reason why it happens is still unknown.

Classification of ITP

It is classified into 2 types

  • Acute ITP
  • Chronic ITP

Acute ITP

It mainly occurs in children and lasts for less than 6 months. It is the most common type of ITP.

Chronic ITP

It mainly occurs in adults and teenagers and lasts for 6 and more than 6 months.

Risk Factors of ITP

There are few risk factors which are listed below

  • Viral infections- The risk factors for this disease are viral infections such as flu and mumps.

  • Sex – women are at higher risk than men.

Symptoms and Signs of ITP

  • Superficial bleeding which appears as pin-point sized reddish purple spots especially on the lower legs.

  • Blood in stools and urine

  • Prolonged bleeding from cuts and injuries.

  • Excessive bleeding during surgeries.

  • Promotion of the bruises.

  • Bleeding from the nostrils and gums.

  • Menorrhagia

ITP

Diagnosis of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic purpura

It can be diagnosed by taking medical history, physical examination, bone marrow examination and complete blood count.

Complications of ITP

Intracranial Haemorrhage is the most common type of complication. Due to the prolonged use of corticosteroids, some of the complications may occur like osteoporosis, cataract, high blood sugar, muscle mass loss and an increased infection risk.

Treatment of ITP

As in ITP, antibodies forms and start destroying the platelets of the body. To treat the root cause, ayurvedic herbs stop process of forming antibodies which improve symptoms such as decreased platelets, bleeding and patches on the skin.
