A week ago my 15 month old baby girl was diagnosed with ITP. This shocked us and rocked us to the core. We had never heard of it and our families all lead very healthy, happy lives.
Her levels were at 5 on diagnosis. The doctor prescribed her a 4 day steroid treatment plan to which her levels increased to 46 (after 4 days). A week later we are up to 150.
Can anyone tell me if their experiences have been like this (in baby) and whether levels stayed in that normal range? I really hope that this has corrected itself and there will be no relapse. All her symptoms have now disappeared and her bruising has nearly cleared up.
