ITP since 2014. Retired nurse. My belief is empower patients to be involved as much as possible in their care. Read, read, read & ALWAYS question medics about the evidence base they use.

I'd ask for the evidence base on that.
I have never been told not to eat grapefruit and Eltrombopag information leaflets do not mention it.
There are medications that are affected by grapefruit but as far as I am aware it usually results in increased serum levels of the drug not lowered ones.
