Hi I was told by my health insurance doctor via telephone that my b12 deficiency likely brought on my drop in white blood count to 2.0 from 3.9 ? You see that as a possibility? He seemed so sure but my search on the internet kinda contradicts his assurance?

Thank you for the excellent video. I would like to recommend adding the terms ITP in Children, Teenagers & Adults in the YouTube Video title to help parents find this helpful video. I also recommend the book Wish by Spirit by Joan Young who details her recovery from ITP. It has helped me with my ITP and given me great hope in recovering.

How is it different from Dengue? Since dengue victims also have low platelet counts and also have bleeding tendencies.

When I was 7, I had a lot of problems with bruises and bloody noses. I did pick my nose a lot (don't we all) so at first the bloody noses were not too suspicious. But after a lot of bruises, my mother decided to go to the doctor. That same evening, we got called up to a hospital a few towns away in the opposite direction of our GP. She said that I had to be admitted to the hospital that evening. I can't really remember what the doctor said exactly, but I ended up getting an infusion for 3 days. Luckily, it was all resolved soon, since my grandmother's birthday was coming up :)

I think you MUST do treatment whether or not the parents want it. Pardon my language, but fuck what the parents think. I had ITP when I was a child and it was in the SINGLE digits. I think the doctor would have to have been a huge dumbass not to have put me in the hospital. There should be NO choice as to whether or not the child goes into the hospital if he or she has a count that's in the single digits. Common sense is that single digit counts need to be treated now. Also, I'm so glad I'm a naturally cautious person. I've NEVER ever liked any sports like softball, baseball etc where you have the possibility of getting nailed in the face by a ball. I'm also thankful I'm not adventurous and don't find fun in stupid things like rock climbing and other activities where you're bound to wind up hurt. People need to be more cautious.

I have been a victim of ITP. I was just 4 when I got it. It was caused by a symptom very rare that you can get when you get your school shots. I can't remember which one gave it to me. I am now 14 but was cured at the age of 12. Actually, I wasn't really cured like said in the video. But don't worry. It is very rare to get it. When you first get itp you should get at least a daily to a weekly as it could in the first few months. But after that you should be fine. You should expect to get a blood test every time you go to the doctors office but that is fine. I mean I got a needle in my arm 3 times a week and now I'm better. I do not recommend playing sports that require physical contact such as wrestling, football or anything like these sports. If you are cut you should quickly get a band aid or some other type of bandage. Having ITP means that you can bleed easier and you don't heal as fast do to the decrease in platelets. But don't worry it won't bleed too much more then it would already. Let me remind you that I am not trying to scare you just warning you.

I had this between about 14-20 years old. My platelet levels were very low, usually around 10K, and as low as 6K at some points. What eventually helped it go into remission was a splenectomy. Before the splenectomy I had all the other treatment options done, but they did not solve the issue (prednisone, IVIG transfusions, immunosupressives). IIRC, it didn't actually resolve right after the splenectomy - but a few months later.

hey, My name is Bella and I have had chronic ITP for 10 years now. I was diagnosed with it at the age of six and since then I have had to deal with the problems that come with the "Disease". I don't want you to worry about it being fatal, don't be depressed. Sure it changes things, but it isn't fatal on its own. I don't really want to put my whole story on this comment so when you get this... email me: bellaelliott12@yahoo.com your not alone. I promise.
