"Low Platelets due to Leukemia is a difficult symptom to treat. Fortunately, many times it responds to the use of certain herbs. "

Leukemia : Why Does It Cause Low Platelets

Low Platelets in cases with Leukemia


Leukemia patients may develop low platelets for different reasons. First the
disease attacks the bone marrow where platelets are produced. Second, the
medications that treat the disease can cause suppression of platelet production.


It has been also noticed that certain leukemia patients tend to develop
antibodies against platelets similar to classical ITP. As you already know in ITP, antibodies are destroying platelets causing them to decrease.

Two Most Common types of Leukemia

Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia and Chronic Myelocytic Leukemia are the most common forms of leukemia in adults. The lymphocytic type being the most common of the two. Both types are discussed briefly in this article.

Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL)

CLL is a progressive form of leukemia. Most persons suffering from this type of leukemia do not present any form of symptoms whatsoever until the disease has advanced to stage four.

It is during this stage IV of the disease that treatment is started. This is the stage in which thrombocytopenia ( low platelets ) starts. So you can say that low platelets in CLL is a sign of advanced disease.

People with CLL usually remain free of symptoms for many years. From stage 1 the survival rate of a person with CLL is usually not so bad since most can survive from a minimum of 5 years all the way to 20 years. After stage IV though the years of survival are usually reduced to 3-4 years.

Medical journals and studies tell us that chemotherapy though useful does not really increase the survival rate but just ameliorates the condition and keeps it under control. Although sometimes it can lead to remission.

How is a Low Platelet Count in Leukemia Treated

The two most common forms of treatment are platetet transfusions and steroids (Prednisone) - the same as in ITP Blood disorder. The only problem with this treatment (Prednisone) is that it reduces the immune system and makes it more difficult to fight leukemia.

Natural herbs have been found to help some people with leukemia to increase their platelets to a more normal level preventing the use of drastic measures and drugs to increase them. These natural herbs do not interfere with the medical treatment that these persons are receiving for their leukemia.

 

Chronic Myeloid Leukemia

Also known as Chronic Myelocytic Leukemia or CML seems to be more aggressive than Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia.

CML has three phases:

  • Chronic phase : This is the phase where non-specific symptoms may be present with minor indications of severe disease. Some of these symptoms may be fatigue, a sense of feeling sick, anemia, chills at night etc. These symptoms may last from months to years
  • Accelerated phase: It is in this phase that a low platelet count can occur. Also all symptoms especially anemia tend to get worse.
  • Terminal phase: In this phase the disease tends to advance rapidly spreading to other areas such as bone, brain, lymph nodes etc and is usually fatal.

Both types of Leukemias can be low platelet causes at different stages. Natural herbs, dietary and life-style changes can be of great help in reducing some of the effects that these diseases have on your platelets.

What is good about natural approaches to low platelets due to leukemia is that many of these approaches are totally free from side effects if done correctly and less invasive. And of course, these natural remedies do not interfere with the treatments you may be getting from your doctor for CLL or CML.

The natural approach is not a substitute of your treatment but an adjunct healthy approach to support your body and immune system and especially to keep your platelets as normal as possible and a preventative way of avoiding the use of strong medications and surgery (splenectomy or taking out of the spleen - this surgical procedure is done more with CML sufferers).
