I have a 10 year old son who was diagnosed with this disorder in July 2011.
What is ITP??
@fibrosufferer - Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) is a disorder that can lead to easy or excessive bruising and bleeding. The bleeding results from unusually low levels of platelets — the cells that help your blood clot. Here's further information about ITP http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/idiopathic-thrombocytopenic-purpura/basics/definition/con-20034239
@carly @shemonster5 we're re-igniting the discussions on Mayo Clinic Connect. Would love to hear how you are doing and how your children are managing ITP as they become older teenagers and young adults?
