Platelet "Boosters" 10 months 1 week ago #73118

I have (AML) Leukemia and ITP. I am currently in Chemo Therapy. This chemo knocks my platelets down even more than ITP. .  .Sometimes to the single digits. I am almost always under 20 and I am constantly requiring transfusions to get them up?!  Is there any medicine booster than can be used in concert with chemo and leukemia to bring them up without danger?

Have you discussed this with your hematologist/oncologist?

  • 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.
