I have essential Thrombocythemia. I am taking 11x500mg Hydroxycarbamide per week, and 1x75mg asprin every other day. I've read that Bromelain offers similar benefits to asprin without the heightened risk of bleeding. Could anyone suggest dosage of Bromelain or where I might find more information about it?

I wanted to say I was diagnosed with ttp in december of 2007. Dr George was there every step of the way. I thank the lord everyday that I recovered and have not had a relapse. Dr. George went out of his way to make sure I was well educated and understood the treatments perscribed to me. It's scary knowing your dying but to have a helping hand there guide you back is amazing. This website helped my family understand everything that was going on. Thank you

Dear Dr. George & Team and fellow readers, PLEASE look further into the ITP/H-pylori connection. I had a terrible case of ITP a few years ago (lowest was count of 1,000 platelets), tested positive for H-pylori, took the antibotics with IVIG and my counts went up AND STAYED UP. I was stuck in the hospital for 2 months -- which seemed like years. I have had normal platelets (225K) for 7 years now. My full story can be found at Please contact me with any questions at Put "ITP" in the subject line. Good luck & many platelets to you all!
