The Rising Concern of TTS: Symptoms, Risks, and Prevention

A topic of concern - Thrombosis with Thrombocytopenia Syndrome (TTS) has emerged in the context of vaccination.

What is TTS?

A rare condition, TTS is identified by the formation of blood clots (Thrombosis) with a decrease in blood platelets (Thrombocytopenia).

Need of Platelets

Platelets play an essential role in blood clotting. A low count is a sign of excessive bleeding.


Severe headache | Difficulty in breathing | Chest or leg pain | Swelling in legs | Severe abdominal pain


Though rare, TTS can lead to life-threatening blood clots in various organs (brain, lungs, legs). A low platelet count means the risk of uncontrolled bleeding.


Staying hydrated and regular exercise can help reduce the risks. Consult a doctor to avoid any further risks regarding TTS.
