They were 2,000 this week.
I had a IVIG treatment Monday.
Ibhave one a week.
Usually will only raise to 20,000
I am 63 yrs old amd do not have any other help problems.
I also take Mycophenolate MCF 2,000mg.

I want to know if anyone had tried alternative med?

I am currently doing 4 Rituxin infusion for my ITP. Last year it raised my platelet to 50,000 for almost a year.
