Thrombocytopenia - the causes of the disease
Thrombocytes in human blood perform an important function, thanks to them, blood clotting and the integrity of blood vessels are ensured. Platelets are produced by the spinal cord and sometimes, for various reasons, their number in the body decreases, which leads to thrombocytopenia. Thrombocytopenia is a disease characterized by a low number of platelets in the blood, which can be caused by various reasons.
The disease can be primary or secondary and occur as a reaction to traumatic conditions or other diseases.
Prinins of thrombocytopenia can be:
- bone marrow pathology;
- blood diseases;
- autoimmune diseases;
- genetic predisposition;
- radiation and chemotherapy ;
- taking certain medications.
There are several manifestations of thrombocytopenia, including decreased platelet production, accelerated platelet destruction, increased platelet consumption by the body.

Symptoms and diagnostics
Symptoms of the disease depend on the severity of the disease. Normally, a healthy person has a platelet count of 150-320x10⁹ platelets /liter.
At rates from 50 to 150x10⁹, a mild degree of the disease is diagnosed, in which there are practically no symptoms, in this case thrombocytopenia is detected during laboratory tests.
If the number of platelets in one liter of blood is from 30 to 50x10⁹, they diagnose the moderate severity of the disease, in which general malaise and rather prolonged bleeding with various injuries can occur.
Severe thrombocytopenia (less than 30x10⁹) can lead to spontaneous and very severe bleeding that can be stopped only with the help of doctors.
Symptoms of thrombocytopenia are also:
- the appearance of hemorrhages on the skin or mucous membranes, the formation of large bruises with minimal bruising;
- frequent and profuse bleeding from the nose, gums, stomach, intestines;
- too long and heavy menstruation.
Since many factors can affect the platelet count, for a correct diagnosis of platelets heating and its causes will require quite extensive diagnostics and consultations of various specialists. First of all, a general blood test is performed, which determines the number of platelets, as well as a coagulogram, which makes it possible to assess the work of the blood coagulation system. In the future, ultrasound examinations of various organs (liver, spleen), immunological tests, tests for hepatitis and tumor markers may be required.
If the cause of the disease is reduced platelet production, bone marrow puncture is done. The cost of the examination depends on the number of tests performed and the involvement of specialists - a therapist, cardiologist, surgeon, hematologist, oncologist, infectious disease specialist, who will assist in diagnosing and identifying the causes of the disease. The price of treatment depends on the chosen scheme, which, in turn, is selected based on the diagnosis. Sometimes, to treat thrombocytopenia, it is enough to take medications, sometimes to cope with the disease, you will need treatment for concomitant diseases.
