Causes of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP)

Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura

Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP)

It is defined as a bleeding disorder in which blood does not circulate properly due to low levels of platelets. Deficiency in platelet cells is due to abnormal functions of the immune system, thus it is known as an autoimmune disorder.

It can occur in both children and adults. Women are more likely to develop ITP.

According to Ayurveda ITP can be correlated with Tiryaga Raktapitta as all the Doshas (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha) in the body get impaired in this disease.

Causes of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP)

There are many reasons which are responsible for the development of ITP but an abnormal functioning of the immune system is the main reason for this.

Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) is caused by decrease in platelet count. Due to this the blood does not clot properly and it causes an excess of bleeding.

Platelets are necessary for the formation of blood clots. Blood clots contain a group of fibers and blood cells. Platelets move to an infected area or wounds and adhere there to form a plug. Therefore, if the platelet count is low, there will be an excess of bleeding. In children, it may be due to viral infection.

It includes:

Reduction in Platelet Count: It mainly occurs due to the abnormal functioning of the immune system. The body is normally producing cells, but due to improper functioning of the immune system, the body is also destroying them. In ITP patients, platelets rarely survive for a few hours compared to normal people. The immune system influences the level of platelets in two ways.

  1. Normally, the immune system plays an important role to keep a person healthy by producing healthy antibodies and make the body fight against all infection and foreign particles. But sometimes the immune system starts to produce some antibodies which destroy the healthy cells of our body and make our body weak. Similarly when the immune system starts to function abnormally and produce antibodies that destroy the platelet cells. It leads to the loss of platelets and causes the ITP.
  2. Sometimes the immune system interferes with the function of cells or tissues, which are responsible for the production of Platelets. This is again a reason for the reduction of platelets. Platelets produced in the bone marrow. The bone marrow is defined as the soft and spongy tissue inside the long bones and is responsible for the production of blood cells, including platelets. In case of a low number of platelets, the bone marrow reacts and produces more cells for proper body function.

Viral Infection: A virus or viral infection is the main reason for developing ITP in most children. It is also related to the immune system. When a virus is infecting our body our immune system begins to produce antibodies against the virus, but mistakenly produces the antibodies that recognize the platelet cells as foreign cells and kills them. It leads to improper or no blood clotting and excessive bleeding.

According to Ayurveda due to the excessive intake of hot, bitter and sour things, there is an impairment of Pitta dosha, which combines with the blood tissue. Pitta is produced in the blood, when it mixes with blood, it vitiates blood. As a result, there is a production of heat in the blood and due to heat, blood cells get destroyed.

Some manifestation, while a person is affected by ITP such as blue-colored spots appear over the whole body, excessive bruising, bleeding from the gums and nose, unusually heavy menstrual flow and blood in urine or stools.
