Platelet Disorders Treatment in Delhi

Platelets are type of tiny blood cells which help to form clot and prevent bleeding. Platelets are produced in the bone marrow, which is the spongy centre within the bones. Having more numbers of platelets in the blood or less numbers can cause problems. Platelets are also known as thrombocytes.

Platelet disorders are classified into several categories:

  • Platelet Count Issues
  • Platelet function issues
  • Some platelet disorders involve both platelet count and platelet function issues.
  • Platelet disorders are bleeding conditions in which platelets fail to form a strong blood clot. Platelet function disorders cause people to bleed and bruise more easily and they may have a normal platelet count or a low platelet count. Their platelet size can range from small to normal to large. In case of very high platelet count, there is tendency to block the blood vessels.

Causes of Platelet Disorder

  • Platelet disorders can arise spontaneously or following a viral infection or can be inherited.
  • The most common platelet disorder in children is immune thrombocytopenia (ITP), which is seen most frequently after some viral infections. 80% of ITPs are acute in nature and gets cured completely with medications but around 20% can become chronic where the child keeps requiring long term treatment.
  • Platelet function can be affected by medications such as ibuprofen and aspirin. Platelet function disorders can develop in people who have liver or kidney problems.
  • Congenital (inherited) platelet function disorders can be caused by a genetic change. Experts are discovering more and more genes that are involved in congenital platelet function disorders.

Platelet Function Impairment

Platelet function disorders can cause mild to severe symptoms. They may include the following:

  • Simple bruising
  • Frequently occurring nosebleeds
  • Heavy menstrual periods (Menorrhagia)
  • Surgery and prolonged bleeding
  • Platelet function disorders can lead to severe bleeding and low iron levels in the blood.

Diagnosis of Platelet Function

Blood tests and genetic tests are used by Doctor to diagnose platelet function disorders.
For someone with a congenital platelet function disorder, genetic tests can provide useful information.
