Hi, are you from Hyderabad ? If so you can consult Dr. Bhaskar, a homeopath. If you go through my replies with respect to ITP , you will find the Dr's phone number.

I am at present taking papaya leaf extract  in pill form.  I had to stop Homeo meds as the med I took for Rheumatoid Arthritis ended up reducing my platelet count.  I tried Homeo as allopathic drugs for RA also reduce platelet count.  But you have only platelet problem.  Homeopathy is very good for this without side effects. Dr. Bhaskar  is a colleague of my homeopath.

Hi, I had to stop homeo treatment because it was not helping me. Medication for RA and ITP made matters worse. At present don't take anything for ITP. My platelet keeps fluctuating.

For RA, I follow Anti Inflammatory diet. So RA inflammation is better.

But my ITP has not been cured. There is no cure for any Auto Immune Disorder.

Dr. Bhaskar's email drbhaskartr@rediffmail.com.

Dr. Bhaskar's phone number : 040 27760670. Dr. Bhaskar's mobile number . 09849030984.

I don't know whether this number has changed. I don't have any contact with him.

Hi.  There are two kinds of treatment (natural remedies and medical intervention).   As you already know the medical solution starts with steroids and for the tough cases, you need to know the cause as with bone marrow cause it is nplate or if it is immune system removing platelets it would be something like chemo treatment such as Rituxan.   But if you google for natural solutions you will find such things as consuming papaya leaf on a daily basis.  I wish you all the luck and God's blessing.

I am from Delhi & my wife has ITP diagnosed during pregnancy, she is holding a count of 10,000 sometime. I have consulted Dr. Rahul Bhargav, Dr. Ntin Gupta & each individual is having a different treatment plan. What matters is what suits your body & which medicine respond well on you. I know few of the people with the same cause in delhi, & It's positive to get advice from each other. If you all dont mind can we have a whats app group where we can share our thought & ideas to improve this having better ideas? do let me know, my number is 8800972220. Thanks
