Mbah Dukun anwers:

ITP, primary immune thrombocytopenia (also called immune (idiopathic) thrombocytopenic purpura), is an autoimmune disease. In autoimmune diseases, the body mounts an immune attack toward one or more seemingly normal organ systems. In ITP, platelets are the target. They are marked as foreign by the immune system and eliminated in the spleen and sometimes, the liver. In addition to increased platelet destruction, some people with ITP also have impaired platelet production.

Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia

Chronic Myelocytic leukemia (mieloid, mielogenous, granulocytic, CML) is a disease in which a cell in the bone marrow turn into malignant and produce a large number of granulocytes (a type of white blood cells) are abnormal . When this happens, infectious anemia, or bleeding easily occurs. CML seldom attack individuals under the age of 20 years, but the incidence increases with age.


There is no definite definition of the notion Cardiorenal Syndrome (CRS). The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute defines the circumstances in which therapy to relieve symptoms of congestive heart failure is limited by the decline in kidney function. More broadly described as a state of moderate or high renal dysfunction, which appears in heart failure patients during therapy. Some say the CRS is the linkage of heart and kidney with the burden of excess fluid in which patients become resistant to diuretic therapy.
