Other South Africans with ITP (thrombocytopenia)
I know this is a doctor Q&A forum but I searching for other South Africans with ITP (low platelet disorder) -- there must be more of us out there!!
There are international websites available (US & UK) but it would be great to talk to someone 'close to home'
I contacted a hematological society/place but got no help there.
Would love to be able to speak and share ITP experiences with other - its such a frustrating condition and maybe we could help eachother.

Hi Julz
I think you may get other patients if you contact your nearest private hematologist?
