Bigworld, You can't assume that her condition is primarily genetic, passed down from her grandfather. There may be a genetic component or predisposition, but blood related conditions are widely known to be caused by exposure to toxins. The first thing to try is the reduction of potential toxic exposure via food, water, indoor pollutants, etc. These you at least have some control over, unlike genetic factors.

A number of years ago my dad had developed a severe case of ITP-Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura, and his platelets had dropped to almost zero. The first thing the Hematologist/Oncologist asked if he had been exposed to any chemicals, and sure enough we discovered that the oil tank in my dad's house had a slow leak (heating oil/kerosene), likely for years, with the fumes coming up from the basement. They also had new carpeting, which in the beginning will outgas a large amount of VOCs (volatile organic compounds). My dad had a thing about keeping the windows closed all year round, which would greatly worsen the level of these chemicals inside the house.

The doctor said that many blood related conditions can be caused/made worse by this type of chemical exposure. Our bodies are increasingly deluged by these chemicals (glyphosate herbicide in/on food, etc). I would work on eliminating these as a possible causative factor for your wife's condition. Getting to the source of the problem is the key, as opposed to treating the symptoms/end result. Don't assume it's primarily genetic.
