Ayurvedic Treatment of Glanzmann’s Thrombasthenia Disease


Glanzmann’s Thrombasthenia -- also called Glanzmann’s disease -- is a rare bleeding disorder linked to an abnormality of small blood cells known as ‘blood platelets.’

The Glanzmann’s Thrombasthenia disorder affects the normal platelet function. The platelets form the body’s first response to cuts and other injuries which causes bleeding. When they function normally, the platelets stick together in a clump to plug an injury and stop bleeding. However, in people suffering from Glanzmann’s Thrombasthenia, the platelets are unable to clot the blood properly after an injury. As such, this condition can pose a serious issue in case of major injuries or surgeries because it can lead to blood loss in large quantities.

Glanzmann’s Thrombasthenia is a congenital hemorrhagic condition, which means that the bleeding disorder -- resulting from defective platelet adhesion and aggregation -- is inherited and is present in the sufferers at birth.

The reason behind the occurrence of Glanzmann’s Thrombasthenia disorder is that the sufferers have a quantitative or qualitative deficiency of a certain protein -- glycoprotein IIb/IIIa (GPIIb/IIIa) -- which is a fibrinogen receptor generally found on the surface of blood platelets. Due to the deficiency of the mentioned protein (the genes of which are carried on chromosome 17 of a person’s DNA), the bleeding time after an injury gets prolonged significantly because the platelets cannot bind properly with one another.


One of the main symptoms of Glanzmann’s Thrombasthenia is severe or continual bleeding even after a small cut or a minor injury. In addition, some of the other indications of this disorder are:

  • Excessive in-surgery and post-surgery bleeding
  • Bleeding of the gums
  • Frequent nose bleeds
  • Vulnerability to bruising
  • Abnormally heavy menstrual bleeding (Mennorhagia
  • Gastrointestinal bleeding
  • Petechiae and ecchymoses (bleeding which occurs in the skin).


To diagnose Glanzmann's Thrombasthenia, doctors mostly evaluate the platelet function by carrying out a few simple blood tests including:

  • Complete blood cell count: to find out the number of platelets
  • Platelet aggregation test: to check how well the platelets clump together
  • Prothrombin time: to ascertain the time taken for the clotting of blood
  • Activated partial thromboplastin time: another test to check the blood-clotting time.


There is no specific treatment yet for curing the Glanzmann's Thrombasthenia disorder. To patients who suffer from frequent episodes of severe bleeding, doctors may either replace the damaged platelets with normal platelets or suggest blood transfusion or injections of donor blood.

The use of some excellent herbal formulations offered by Planet Ayurveda herbal manufacturing company can also prove to be very beneficial for the patients of Glanzmann's Thrombasthenia disorder.
