In Response To: ITP an autoimmune disease (West)
I've seen quite a few cases of ITP in my practice, and like you I feel there is an over predominance of type O over the other types, and that the other types seem to go into remission more often. Perhaps this is related to the effect of grain lectins in type O, or perhaps related in some way to the opposing blood type antibodies.
In practice, I've seen only mild increases in platelet counts in patients with ITP that follow the O diet, though the condition does stabilize and they seem to require less frequent gamma globulin injections and transfusions.
