COULD GLUTEN SENSITIVITY CAUSE ITP (low platelets)
My daughter was diagnosed with ITP (Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia) 5 months ago, and somebody suggested changing her diet to see if her platelets would go up.
They are currently at 25000, We tried removing all milk, gluten, sugar, and processed foods, but I do not think we were strict enough with the gluten, as it is very difficult to feed a picky 2 1/2yr old as it is!
Do you think that a Gluten sensitivity could be responsible for her ITP? as we do not have a family history of ITP, and she has never received any vaccines, nor had much of a virus to cause it otherwise.
If you feel it could be the problem then we will definitly remove all gluten from her diet.
Thank up very much,
