I have had ITP for about 8 years now and am 20 years old. My platelets are usually between 15 and 50 the only treatment I have ever gotten is a platelet infusion right before knee surgery. I have never been told I needed any type of treatment or medication. I live a normal like and only keep it monitored. I am tired all of the time 24/7 and bruise easy those are my symptoms. I was just wondering why people need steroids? How does it help? What other types of treatment/medications do you all take and use? I would love to know because my hematologist has never mentioned anything to me like this. Maybe my platelets are too high for treatment.
