Hi everyone. My name is Jackilyn and i'm 25, I just got diagnosed with lupus and ITP about 4 or 5 months ago. I've had IvIG treatment already and I've been on prednisone and now my Doc wants to try Nplate injections. I'm not sure if I want to go threw with them because I'm scared of the side effects.I've had a lot if side effects wit the prednisone And I don't want to take prednisone for the rest of my life because it also gave me diabetes and high blood pressure. I just don't know what to do at this point. Can someone please give me some advice? Thank you.
