Ayurvedic Treatment of Glanzmann Thrombasthenia


An average adult holds 10 units or 5 liters of blood in his body to sustain life. Decreased amounts of blood from normal levels tend to occur in several diseases. Some of which can be treated while some others are tough to overcome as per modern science. One of the common bleeding disorder is Glanzmann thrombasthenia. This disease has no treatment in modern science. But Ayurvedic medicines have enough potential in treating Glanzmann Thrombasthenia in a natural way. In this article, you will get to know about various aspects of Glanzmann thrombasthenia and how you can treat this with herbal medicines.

Glanzmann Thrombasthenia


Glanzmann thrombasthenia is a bleeding disorder characterized by overlong and involuntary bleeding started by birth. People suffering from this disease have increased frequency of nosebleeds (epistaxis), bleeding from gums and may bruise easily. These symptoms are being elaborated later in this article. Platelets (specified cells required for blood clotting) begin to function abnormally in this condition. If no proper treatment of Glanzmann thrombasthenia is taken for long duration, it may develop into life-threatening form.

Causes of Glanzmann Thrombasthenia

Main cause of Glanzmann’s thrombasthenia is the defect in the genes for glycoprotein IIb/IIIa which are carried on chromosome 17 of DNA. This condition is autosomal recessive which means both parents must carry the malfunctioned gene or genes to make Glanzmann’s disease inherited.

One also has an increased risk of inheriting the disorder or passing it on to children if he has family history of Glanzmann’s disease.

Symptoms of Glanzmann Thrombasthenia

  1. Epistaxis (Nosebleeds): It is a condition in which blood starts running from the nose. In extreme conditions, bleeding may occur in both nostrils.
  2. Bleeding from Gums: In this condition, bleeding can be seen around the gums.
  3. Purpura: Large red or purple colored spots can be observed on skin.
  4. Muscle Bleeding: Bleeding in large muscles occurs in this. Muscles of hip, forearm or calf are major targeted muscles.
  5. Hematoma: It is a condition when blood collects outside of blood vessels present under the skin.
  6. Joint bleeding: this situation includes the start of bleeding into the joint or joint spaces.
  7. Excess menstrual bleeding in females: Due to uncontrolled bleeding, blood amount during menstruations get increased to a great extent in this condition.
  8. Intermittent GIT Bleeding: Bleeding occurs at irregular intervals in the gastrointestinal tract mainly in the food pipe and abdominal area.
  9. Blood in Urine: Small amount of blood begins to pass out from the body along with urine.

Diagnosis of Glanzmann Thrombasthenia

Doctors use several blood tests to diagnose Glanzmann’s thrombasthenia, which are:

  • Platelet Aggregation Test: to see capability of platelet to clot.
  • CBC: to count the number of platelets in blood.
  • Prothrombin Time: to check how much time blood takes to clot.
  • Partial Thromboplastin Time: it is another test to calculate blood clotting time.

Doctors also test some close relatives to detect Glanzmann’s disease or any other gene which can contribute to this disease.

Treatment of Glanzmann Thrombasthenia

In modern science, there is no proper therapy of Glanzmann’s thrombasthenia. Mostly, platelets are infused to stop bleeding in these kinds of patients but infusion can raise transmission of blood borne infections from one person to another. Patients may also get adverse toxic reactions when infusing platelets directly in blood. Uncountable side effects can be raised by modern medicines which can annoy you for lifetime. So it is not a wise option to preferring modern medicine for these types of disorders.
