Herbal Remedies for Paroxysmal Nocturnal Hemoglobinuria

Abstract

The destruction of red blood cells is known as hemolysis and this can be caused by different reasons. Hemolysis is responsible for releasing hemoglobin into the bloodstream and normal blood cells have 120 days of lifespan. When they break down they are released into the circulation by the spleen. There is a rare medical condition that results in increased destruction of the blood cells known as Paroxysmal Nocturnal Hemoglobinuria. Through this article, we are going to discuss this rare blood condition in detail and its help through the Ayurvedic condition.

Introduction

Paroxysmal Nocturnal Hemoglobinuria is a rare acquired condition of the blood and can result in death. It is mainly characterized by clotting of blood (thrombosis), increased destruction of blood cells (hemolytic anemia), and impairment of bone marrow function. It was first discovered by a German physician known as Paul Strubing in 1852 to 1915.

  • Epidemiology: – It is sporadic, and one in every one million people is affected with PNH.
  • 25% of females are affected with PNH and most of them are discovered during the time of their pregnancy

Sign and Symptoms

There are wide ranges of treatment seen in Paroxysmal Nocturnal Hemoglobinuria and sometimes is not noticed for months or years

This includes signs like

  • Weakness and fatigue
  • Unusual bleeding or bruising all over the body.

The hemoglobinuria is especially very noticeable in the morning. The attack of hemoglobinuria can be caused by consumption of alcohol, infections, stress, exercise, and some certain type of medications.

Blood clots can be formed in veins and it is one of the leading causes of death in a patient with Paroxysmal Nocturnal Hemoglobinuria. The common sites for the blood clots are the sagittal vein and hepatic vein.

Causes

The main cause for PNH occurs when there is a mutation of a gene known as PIG-A present in the bone marrow stem cells. Stem cells are responsible for giving rise to the mature blood elements which include red blood cells, these cells are helpful in carrying oxygen to the tissues and also have white blood that helps in fighting the infection.

In patients with Paroxysmal Nocturnal Hemoglobinuria, the stem cell moves the PIG-A mutated gene to all the cells making the stem cells abnormal.

Pathophysiology

All the cells in the body have protein which is attached to the membranes and helps in communication between the two cells. These proteins are physically connected to the membrane of cells in many ways, commonly with glycolipids known as Glycosyl phosphatidylinositols. In patients with PNH the glycolipid protein is defective.
