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!
