Your Itp Blood Disorder Treatment Options - And One That Is Overlooked
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

ITP Blood Disorder plagues millions world wide. Obviously it affects you also. It affects not only those who have it but also those around them. And because it is an autoimmune disease all this negative stress can trigger the immune system of the sufferer to damage even more platelets. A vicious downward spiral.

We are going to take a couple of minutes to look at your ITP Blood Disorder treatment options and what you will encounter with them. We will also tip you off to an option that is usually overlooked that you may like to explore a little further.

ITP Blood Disorder treatment is geared towards...

  • Suppressing the Immune System
  • Filtering the Blood
  • Spleen Removal
  • Use of Synthetic Hormones
  • Infusing Immunoglobulins

The above is a list of the more common medical treatments. This is not a complete list but it does cover all the usual methods that are exhausted by doctors first before exploring more radical treatments.

Suppressing the immune system is done using drug therapy. The drug of choice is Prednisone. This drug is used to decrease the antibodies that are destroying platelets. The problem with this treatment comes with long term use. Side effects can include osteoporosis, glaucoma, cataracts, diabetes, obesity, hypertension and others.

Filtering the blood to remove the bad antibodies works but for only the very short term. It will have to be done over and over. This is like sprinkling water on a fire but not removing the fuel.

Spleen removal is effective for the short term. This is because the spleen is only doing what it is told by the deviant immune system, remove platelets. When it is gone the body will adjust and use other organs to remove platelets.

Using synthetic male hormones (Danazole) is effective as a long term solution (over a year) and many persons go into remission if used for a this length of time. However long term use of Danazole has been proven to increase risk for liver disease. Additional known side effects are, strokes, clot formation, jaundice and In woman facial hair growth and breast shrinkage.

The infusion of immunoglobulin G for 2-5 days prevents platelet destruction. The mechanism that makes this work is unknown. This is only temporary and would need to be used repeatedly which is not practical.

I would like to point out that some of the same drugs used to treat cancers have been added to the list of treatment options for ITP Blood Disorder. Again these are powerful drugs that suppress the immune system causing unwanted side effects in the long run and need to be used with discretion.

As the title implies I need to cover an option you have that is, for the most part, overlooked, especially by the medical establishment. It does come with a stigma, although undeserved, and because of this most don't take it seriously. But this is a big mistake. One you shouldn't make.

Using Proven All Natural Remedies to Treat ITP Blood Disorder

Rather that suppress the immune system, all natural treatments are designed to modulate it instead. Your immune system is needed to ward of invaders you are exposed to on a daily basis. Colds, flue and other bacteria and viruses are all around us and using treatments that protect our defenses makes more sense.

Research will educate you in these methods. And taking action with what you learn will be critical. Proven all natural methods combined with good common sense can be found in a publication written by a doctor who has dealt with lupus all his life called Conquer Low Platelets. This often overlooked strategy for the treatment of ITP Blood Disorder is completely covered to your benefit.
