featurted image

Abstract

Glanzmann’s illness, commonly known as Glanzmann’s thrombasthenia, is an uncommon disorder in which your blood clots improperly. The majority of cases are genetic, with an autosomal recessive inheritance pattern, however, acquired GT does occur. In today’s medical system, a full cure for such sickness is not feasible since platelet transfusion is used to treat this kind of disease. However, after a while, several patients reported that their platelet count had dropped again. Ayurveda has many mystical herbs that may help you increase your platelet count in a healthy way.

Glanzmann Thrombasthenia

Introduction

Glanzmann thrombasthenia is a platelet-related anomaly or condition. Platelets, also known as thrombocytes, are a kind of blood cell that make up a large part of the blood. Their primary job is to produce coagulation factors that form a clump to halt bleeding from broken blood vessels (clot). Platelets are responsible for the development of blood clots and the prevention of bleeding. It is a bleeding illness that begins at birth and is characterized by persistent or spontaneous bleeding. People with Glanzmann thrombasthenia bruise quickly, have regular nosebleeds (epistaxis), and their gums may bleed.

Glanzmann Thrombasthenia: What does Ayurveda have to say about it?

We may associate it with “rakta pitta” according to our old classical literature (hemorrhagic disorders). It is a “rakta” disorder (blood). Pitta dosha has its seat in the blood, thus if it becomes vitiated, it will cause an illness in the bloodstream as well. Pitta is also called ‘lohitpitta’ because it comes into touch with blood and affects it, causing a disease.

Causes Of Glanzmann Thrombasthenia

Glanzmann thrombasthenia is caused by a protein that is typically found on the surface of platelets not being present. Platelets require this chemical to cluster together and form blood clots.

Glycoprotein IIb/IIIa genes are found on chromosome 17 of your DNA. Glanzmann’s disease may be caused by mutations in these genes.

If your family has a history of Glanzmann’s illness or associated conditions, you’re more likely to inherit it or pass it along to your offspring.

Symptoms & Signs Of Glanzmann Thrombasthenia

Glanzmann’s thrombasthenia is characterized by a proclivity for bruising and irregular bleeding. This symptom may appear shortly after delivery or after a short length of time. The following are some of the various indications and symptoms that have been observed:

  • Bruising
  • Nose bleed, also known as epistaxis, is a condition in which the nose bleeds
  • Gums that are bleeding
  • Intermittent bleeding in the gastrointestinal system
  • Bleeding from tiny blood vessels under the skin causes red or purple patches on the skin
  • Heavy menstrual flow among women
  • After an accident or operation, there is very heavy bleeding
  • After giving birth to the infant, there was a lot of blood

Diagnosis Of Glanzmann Thrombasthenia

Usually, the patient is encouraged to undergo tests to determine the time of clotting, such as prothrombin time and activated partial thromboplastin time, once the doctor notices irregular bleeding. These tests may assist in determining how long it takes for a person’s plasma to clot. These tests, on the other hand, reveal that a person with Glanzamann’s thrombasthenia has a long time.

Glanzmann’s Disease Treatment

Glanzmann’s illness does not have a particular therapy. For individuals who experience significant bleeding episodes, doctors may recommend blood transfusions or donor blood injections. People with Glanzmann’s illness have reduced bleeding and bruising when damaged platelets are replaced with normal platelets. These therapies, however, just give symptomatic alleviation to the patient; Ayurveda, on the other hand, works extremely liberally by reaching the root of the problem.

Natural Remedies for Sideroblastic Anemia (blood disorder)

Abstract

In this article our main topic of discussion will be a very common blood disorder known as sideroblastic anemia. It is a type of anemia and has a great prevalence rate. Ayurveda deals with such ailment by doing detailed study of individuals prakriti (nature), and then we uses medication according to that by following basic principles of ayurveda tridosha theory (three principle energies of our body- vata, pitta and kapha) and panchamahabhuta theory (five basic elements of life- akash (sky), vayu (air), agni (fire), jal (water) and prithvi (mother earth). So let’s start discussing this in more detail.

Introduction

Sideroblastic anemia is a type of anemia in which bone marrow starts producing ringed sideroblasts (they are nucleated erythroblasts that are precursors to mature red blood cells) instead of normal red blood cells (erythrocytes). In a normal healthy person these sideroblasts are present in bone marrow and enter blood circulation after maturing into red blood cells. So this process of maturing and entering into the main blood stream of sideroblast got affected in sideroblastic anemia.

As per ayurveda we can correlate this with “pandu roga”. In this pitta dosha gets aggravated in the body due to those body tissues starting undergoing inflammatory reactions that make the body weak and lethargic. This leads to deterioration of varna (colour), bala (strength), sneha (protective fat layer of the body) and ojas (immunity power).
