When choosing a treatment for chronic ITP, there are many considerations
Identify your personal goals to help find a chronic ITP treatment that's best for you
Because chronic ITP is a long-term disease, it is important to consider how well treatment fits in with your priorities and goals. It should help reduce your risk of bleeding by increasing your platelet counts, while also fitting into your lifestyle, so you can stick with it over time. What matters most may be different for everyone, just like the symptoms of chronic ITP.
Think about what is important to you, such as:
- What are your personal goals of treatment?
- How is treatment administered?
- How often do you need to take the medication?
- Can you eat before, during, or after you take the medication?
- What are the potential side effects?
- What type of monitoring is required and how often is it needed?
