My ITP Status

What do I ask my health care team?

Here are some potential questions you may have at this stage to discuss with your health care team:

• How is my platelet count today? Is there anything I should be doing differently?

        – What’s a good range for me moving forward?

• What are my treatment options now?

• I’ve heard about platelet booster therapies. Are they right for me?

• What are the side effects of my potential new treatments?

• What about combination therapies?

• Are there any drug interactions I need to know about?

• When will I know if it’s time to switch to something else?

• What are my long-term options?

• I feel like I need support to help me cope with ITP. Can you recommend any local or online resources?


Be sure to talk to your doctor if you experience any changes in your symptoms or your health at any time during your treatment.
