Herbal Remedies for Essential Thrombocythemia (ET) - Symptoms, Causes, Diagnosis & Treatment

ESSENTIAL THROMBOCYTHEMIA (ETE)

Essential Thrombocythemia is a very rare disorder in which the body produces too many blood platelets which result in feeling of fatigue and lightheaded. This condition also increases the risk of blood clots.

This condition is more common in people which are over 50 years but younger people can develop this disorder too. This is more common in women as compared to men.

It is a chronic form of a disorder. Certain medicines are available that lowers the platelet count and blood thinners are available.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF ESSENTIAL THROMBOCYTHEMIA?

There is not any noticeable symptom of essential thrombocytopenia. The first indication is the development of a blood clot which can develop anywhere in the body but with essential thrombocythemia, they occur most often in the brain, hands and feet.

Signs and Symptoms depend on where the clot forms. Symptoms include:

  • Lightheadedness or dizziness
  • Fainting
  • Headache
  • Numbness or tingling sensation in the hands or feet
  • Redness, throbbing or burning pain in the hands and feet.
  • Chest pain

Sometimes, essential thrombocythemia may cause bleeding if the platelet count is extremely high. Bleeding may take the form of:

  • Nosebleeds
  • Bloody stool
  • Bruising
  • Bleeding from the mouth or gums

If the blood clot occurs in the artery that supply blood to the brain, it may cause a Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) or stroke.

The signs and symptoms of a stroke or TIA develop suddenly and include:

  • Weakness or numbness usually on one side of the body.
  • Chest pain lasting for few minutes
  • Breathlessness
  • Difficulty in understanding or speaking speech
  • Blurred or double vision.

WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF ESSENTIAL THROMBOCYTHEMIA?

It is a type of chronic myeloproliferative disorder. The bone marrow, spongy tissue inside the bones makes too many of certain type of cells. In the case of essential thrombocythemia, bone marrow makes too many cells that create platelets.

A normal platelet count ranges from 1,50,000 – 4,50,000 platelets per microliter of blood. In essential thrombocythemia, there are 4,50,000 platelets per microliter of blood.

As a result, the excess platelets may not function normally leading to an abnormal clotting or bleeding.

DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT

If the blood count is above 4,50,000 platelets/microliter of blood. Blood tests will confirm the number of platelets, the size of platelets, activity of the platelets, iron levels, specific genetic flaws, markers of inflammation.
