Diet Plan for ITP (Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura)

Platelets are formed in the bone marrow which are responsible for clotting. Healthy eating and a balanced diet are important for all patients. So, here’s the required dietary recommendations that can help you to increase the platelet count and treat ITP.
