1. Hi
    I have been online this evening trying to get as much info as I
    could on a chronic blood platelet disorder called Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura or ITP. (In this case is it 'adult ITP'.)
    As I was looking over the research I found along with the treatment there was sometimes necessary removal of the spleen which involved blood transfusion depending on how dire the medical emergency involving a low platelet count.
    Also, some of the treatments listed also involved blood transfusions. I'm then thinking about a friend of mine who is Jehovah's witnesses and suffers from that disorder...he won't accept that treatment so... I decided to ask here if you could offer
    some suggestions as to alternate treatments and/or share any related success stories.
    Thanks , Ann
