I amlooking for information on the affects viruses have on ITP and platelets.Ihave read National Geographic’s, issue on viruses and RNA. I have read CODE
BREAKERS.Iam a 64 yr old mail with chronic ITP since 2016.P- 16. I am healthy and active. I am
an avid biker, mountain and road, and a skier. I am currently on 50 mg PROMACTA and
25-Feb 14, 2021 1-Mar 90, 17-Mar 366 covid, 15-Apr 101, 26-Apr 156 covid, 29-Jun 99, 28-Jun 133, 20-Aug 129, 29-Sep 158, 9-Nov 397covid3, 9-Dec 129, 12-Jan, 2022, 245, 10-Feb 206, 3-Mar 229 My‘thoughts’ and it is just a crazy theory is; Viruseshave been in mankind since the birth of man. Most viruses are essential to our
health,Componentsof many viruses are stored in our RNA, both good and bad. Viruses can be identified by differentprotein strands = molecules. Mythoughts, when a virus hits the body the immune system goes on alert. RNA data
is searched.Proteinstrings in RNA spin like a slot machine until the needed sequence is selected and
inserted into the fighting cell. Sometimes a miss is appropriated. RNA/protein
slips in and causes trouble, ie: the nodule on the Tcell that allows the cell
to attach and attack platelets. Ihave been on PROMACTA since the start. When it looked like Promacta wasn’t
working, we tried RUTUXAN, two rounds, that did not work.Thisyear I have had 3 Covid vaccine shots, 2 Shingles shots, (platelets elevated) and 1 cortisone shot in the knee for
pain, (platelets elevated & doctors told me it was unrelated to the shot).
For the first time my Platelets have been steady.
What relationship do viruses have on ITP and platelets?
