I have had two episodies of TTP. One in June of l999 and again in June of 2000. Both stays in hospital
were 6 day each. First time 2 treatments of plasma pherisus and steriods and second time 4 treatments. My
platelet count are staying in the 300 range, but my LDH is staying on the high side. I still go in weekly for
CBC and LDH, plus this last time they did a liver profile and isoenzymes, and peripheral smear. The last
three test came back normal. I am still on 15 mg of steriods. He tried to go to 12 1/2 but the LDH went
up higher, so went back to 15. I see the doctor Fri., so will we curious to see what he suggests now. HAS
ANYONE HAD THE PROBLEN WITH THERE LDH STAYING HIGH?. With the treatment it went to normal, but worked its
way up, though it is not nearly as high as when I had both episodes. Hemologoben, red and white counts
are good.
