How can low platelet counts be raised? My grandmother has been struggling with low platelet counts for years. She was diagnosed with myleofibrosis. They have put her on a steroid and a few other medicines that worked well at first but now they are not hel
Low : Low platelet counts can be caused by reduced production or increased destruction or use. Myelofibrosis can certainly reduce platelet count, and is likely the main culprit. However, an enlarged spleen can certainly indicate increased breakdown. Removal of the spleen may help. If she is not a good surgical candidate, the spleen can instead be treated by embolization (blocking of the blood flow to the spleen using a small catheter). The latter is a procedure performed by an interventional radiologist. Check the doctor finder page at sirweb.Org to find an interventional radiologist near you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I ve been diagnosed with pash and have tremendous pain associated with it my dr has suggested primrose which I have been taking for the past 4 years since I was diagnosed and the pain just continues to increase I prefer not to use hormones are there any o
Mastectomy: Pseudoangiomatous stromal hyperplasia is poorly understood. The evening primrose suggestion tells me you have a very smart physician. Managing the discomfort when present is trial and error. Some women today are having mastectomies, and the american journal of surgery reviewed the nipple-sparing option for this illness in october 2008. Good luck. ...Read more
My sister has been diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme and she's been alive more than 3 years since. Is she doing well or does she have no time left?
Hard to tell: Sorry to hear about your sister, but it sounds like she is well into several years of survival. Gbm is an aggressive diagnosis, and many patients do not make it to the three year mark. While many families and patients want to know the "time left, " it's usually impossible to tell. We in oncology believe it's more about quality than quantity; hopefully her quality of life is ok. Best wishes. ...Read more

What causes spinal stenosis in someone who is 44? I also have lupus & ra. The pain has been debilitating for two weeks now, what are my options?

Treated, yes, cured?: Uveitis is part of some forms of jra. It is treatable but not likely to be cured. It will go away after a while as the jra is controlled.
