Does anyone suffer from Crohn's or Colitis as well as ITP?
I was recently diagnosed with ITP and was prescribed prednisolone 60mg for 2 weeks as I had a count that fell from 68 to 18. I refused to take them due to practical reasons. I recovered from a cold and my platelets are now 76! If I took the steroids I would have probably had more side effects and a longer term cold.
Does anyone suggest alternative methods for dealing with ITP as I don't like the idea of immunosuppressants of being any sort of long term solution.
