Glanzmann Thrombasthenia Symptoms, Causes And Treatment By Ayurveda


Platelets are essential for proper blood clotting. Any deformity in their production and functioning is a serious problem. Glanzmann Thrombasthenia is a congenital bleeding disorder that occurs due to the impaired functioning of platelets. This is inherited from the parents to the child, with an equal risk of having the disorder in both male and female children. This disorder is mainly seen in populations that practice intermarriages. In this article, we will be discussing various causes and symptoms of Glanzmann Thrombasthenia. Also, we will discuss the ayurvedic treatment for this disease.

Glanzmann Thrombasthenia


Glanzmann Thrombasthenia is a rare but serious platelets disorder in which there is abnormal bleeding from different parts of the child. The symptoms begin at birth or shortly after some time of the child’s birth. There is difficulty in getting blood to clot and the child becomes bruised or loses a large quantity of blood. This is an autosomal recessive condition and both parents need to have an abnormal gene in order to inherit it into their child. Untreated Glanzmann Thrombasthenia can lead to hemorrhages which may be a life-threatening condition.

Ayurvedic Aspect

We can correlate Glanzmann’s Thrombasthenia with “Raktapitta” in Ayurveda. Raktapitta is a hemorrhagic disorder in which bleeding occurs from various parts of the body. The bleeding disorders according to Ayurveda occur due to an imbalance of tridosha and excess accumulation of Pitta dosha. This excessive pitta dosha contaminates the rakt (blood), which also toxicate the blood channels throughout the body. The Pitta dosha along with Vata and Kapha dosha causes the oozing of blood from the openings of the body that are characterized accordingly.


  • Glanzmann Thrombasthenia occurs due to the lack of protein (Fibrinogen) that is on the surface of platelets.
  • The protein is essentially needed to join/clump the blood cells together. The absence of protein causes this disease. This lack of protein is caused due to various genital abnormalities and mutations.
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Certain infections
  • Leukemia

The cause of Raktpitta according to Ayurveda are

  • Pitta dosha vardhak Aahar and Vihar
  • Excess anger
  • Consuming Katu (spicy), lavana (Salty), and amla (Sour) is excess in diet.


Symptoms of Glanzmann Thrombasthenia include abnormal Mucosal bleeding from different body parts in the child at birth or shortly thereafter birth. The infant tends to bruise easily with the following symptoms.

  •  Gingival bleeding (bleeding from gums)
  •  Epistaxis (Nose bleeding)
  •  Petechiae
  •  Purpura
  •  Hematuria (Blood in urine)
  •  Bleeding after or during surgery

Women with this disorder have

  •  Menorrhagia
  •  Abnormal uterine bleeding


The diagnosis is ruled out for proper finding of the disorder

  •  Complete blood count
  •  Platelet count
  •  Bleeding time
  •  Clotting time- Prothrombin time test
  •  Platelet aggregation study
  •  DNA analysis
  •  Prenatal analysis
  •  Blood protein deficiency test
  •  Genetic tests


The standard treatment followed in Glanzmann Thrombasthenia is

  • Bone marrow transplantation
  • Hormonal therapy

Management of Plantar Fasciitis Through Ayurveda


Imagine you wake up in the morning, everything is typical and you step your foot on the floor and suddenly there is a stabbing pain in your heels. You may have ignored it and kept walking, and gradually it may have faded away. But you notice it comes back whenever you stress or rest your heels for too long. Now you are here looking for answers… Glad you came here! We have all the answers you were looking for, along with all the possibilities to cure your discomforts… This condition is plantar fasciitis, often misdiagnosed with calcaneus spur and vice versa. Let’s go further deep…shall we?

What is plantar fasciitis?

Plantar fasciitis is basically an inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue that connects your heels to toes. The primary purpose of this fascia is to absorb the shock during walking, but the same can cause wear and tear of the structure. Which when done repeatedly paves the way for inflammation.

Causes of plantar fasciitis

Even though tears are the common reason provoking this inflammation, most cases don’t have a reasonable explanation for its origin. But certain risk factors can contribute to your chances of getting it.

  • Age in between 40 to 60
  • Stressing your heels, like running too long, dancing poses which weigh on your heels.
  • Congenital abnormalities like a flat foot or high arched foot, which messes up with the weight distribution.
  • Obesity can also mess with the weight heels have to carry.
  • Occupations that demand standing and walking for a long period of time can also increase the risk.

Symptoms of plantar fasciitis

Stabbing pain in the heels after getting up in the morning, after standing for a long time, and standing up after sitting for a long time. The pain gradually decreases after a few steps.

Plantar fasciitis


Diagnosis is done with a medical history and physical examination. Imaging techniques are only used to rule out calcaneal spurs.

Complications if the pain is ignored

The pain can become chronic if left untreated. The pain can change your gait (the way you walk) and this adjustment could put stress on your foot, knee, or hip leading to other problems.


  • Conservative treatment like applying ice bag in the area of tenderness, avoiding causes of pain, etc.
  • Internal administration of Painkillers and anti-inflammatories
  • Physiotherapy
  • Orthotics or arc supporters to equally distribute weight-bearing in the foot.
  • Steroid injections to the area of pain
  • Extracorporeal shock wave therapy
  • Ultrasonic tissue repair
  • If any of these methods don’t give relief and the pain is severe, the fascia can be detached from the heel through surgery.

Let’s interpret the condition in terms of Ayurveda.

Plantar fasciitis and calcaneal spur, both come under “Vata kandaka”. Vatakandaka is mentioned in ayurvedic classic as a disease arising from walking or standing on a hard surface for long and due to exertion. These causes aggravate Vata dosha.  Along with this, the wear and tear in the fascia aggravate the pitta and lead to inflammation. The condition is treated with Ishtika Sweda (heating a red brick and keeping the heels on it) and Agnikarma (cauterization). These are the external therapies. In severe cases, this can be treated with vasthi (enema with medicated liquid) or virechana (purgation). Internal medication can be administered to alleviate Vata and pitta.
