Ayurvedic Treatment for Bernard Soulier Syndrome

Abstract

Bernard-Soulier syndrome is a blood disorder that disturbs the normal functioning of our platelets. Platelets or thrombocytes are small and colorless cell fragments present in our blood that helps in forming the clot and preventing excessive bleeding. Macothrombocytopenia is the main factor meaning enlargement of the platelets resulting in the syndrome and resulting in various bleeding disorders. Through this article, we are going to throw light on this rare blood disorder and how you can manage it through Ayurvedic medicine.

Bernard Soulier Syndrome

Introduction

Bernard-Soulier syndrome is a rare genetic disorder that is inherited from parents. It results in the formation of a few platelets that are larger in size leading to improper function of the body. There are three main symptoms shown in this disorder that is increased bleeding, low platelet count, and abnormal size of platelets which are larger in size. This causes bruising all over the body and every little injury causes them to bleed easily. This causes prolonged bleeding after surgery which leads to a life-threatening situation. Small and tiny spots of blood can also be seen under the skin known as petechiae and it’s very rare to find in people. Women are most likely to be affected by Bernard Soulier’s disorder as compared to Men.

Signs and Symptoms

The symptoms that are seen in this disorder are typically present from birth and seen throughout life and the common signs seen are:

  • Excessive bleeding from minor cuts or small injuries.
  • Epistaxis (bleeding from the nose) is very easily seen.
  • The increased flow of bleeding during the time of menses noted in females.
  • Bruising is also seen in some parts of the body.
  • Purpura meaning bleeding from small blood vessels is also seen in patients.
  • In some children, the symptoms are presented until they reach adulthood.

Cause for Bernard Soulier Syndrome

It is caused due to the mutation of a specific gene called GP1BA, GP1BB, or GP9 which is responsible for causing Benard Soulier syndrome. The mutation occurs only in one of the genes, not all the genes. These genes are responsible for producing a protein that combines to form glycoprotein, found on the surface of platelets, and plays an important role in clotting the blood.

The glycoprotein binds with the surface of the Von Willebrand factor and it is present inside the surface of blood vessels. It is helpful in clotting the blood whenever there is an injury causing the blood vessel and tissue to heal properly. In the syndrome, the mutation results in the disturbance of glycoprotein and stopping them to bind with the surface of blood vessels. This impairment causes excessive and sometimes even death.

Clinical diagnosis of Bernard Soulier Syndrome

There are various blood tests which will help in the diagnosis of the syndrome and the cause behind excessive bleeding. This includes a certain blood test which helps to show the abnormality present in the blood cells and the total number of large immature platelets present in the blood. Flow cytometry is one of them which helps in finding the number of glycoproteins present on the surface of platelets. This helps in confirming the diagnosis and also other bleeding disorders.

Treatment of Bernard Soulier Syndrome

According to modern science, the treatment for this syndrome depends on the symptoms presented by the patient. The most common treatment is platelet transfusion and this can also cause excessive bleeding resulting in a life-threatening situation. This treatment gives temporary relief and may also result in other side effects.

Ayurveda gives treatment on the basis of disturbed Dosha, while it’s a genetic disease it cannot be cured but can be managed through herbal medicine. Herbal medicine will give the patient a healthy life and other ailments related to the disease can also be reduced.
