Measuring fatigue with ITP

Geplaatst op 31-01-2022  -  Categorie: General

Van Creveldkliniek (Utrecht University Medical Centre) has conducted a study into fatigue in 59 patients with chronic immune thrombocytopenia (ITP).

In her study, researcher Wobke Van Dijk showed that the Checklist for Individual Resilience is a suitable method to measure the level of ITP-related fatigue. In addition, she showed that over half of chronic ITP sufferers (56%) experience serious fatigue, which is over twice as many as in the healthy population (24%).

We hope that this study will lead to greater recognition of fatigue as a symptom of ITP, and that the Checklist will help healthcare providers better address fatigue in their consults with patients.
