Maybe gluten intolerance is causing your ITP? It’s highly possible. If you have ITP and a low platelet count, have you considered the fact that you might have a gluten intolerance and that is what is wreaking havoc with your immune system?
Most of the medical community equate gluten intolerance with Celiac disease, an intestinal disorder in which the body reacts to gluten by producing the following symptoms; diarrhea, abdominal pains, weight loss, and a host of other problems. But more recent medical studies are confirming that gluten sensitivity can affect many different parts of the body besides the abdominal area and intestines. A lot of people who eventually become ill from ingesting gluten do not develop Celiac disease and the tests for Celiac disease come out negative although the person may be completely intolerant to gluten.
