It is annoying as I really want to put all these behind me and move on with life.
My WBC was 2.8 last Oct, it is at 2.9 this week. However neutrophils has gone down from 1.5 to 1.4. Fasting Glucose has gone up from 5.8 to 5.9 (normal is 3.3-5.5)
A new number now jumped out into the abnormal range is HemoglobinA1C, it has gone up from 5.5 to 6.1 in 6 months. i am 0.4 points away to be type 2 diabetes. @@ MO did say last time that sometimes chemo messes up blood sugar, but 12 months after still?
Same as you. after each round of lab, I generally spend a couple of days research chemo induced Acute Myeloid Leukemia. I have also read that vegan generally have lower WBC than omnivores.
Seeing my MO tomorrow. If MO doesn't do it, I am thinking about requesting an hematologist referral thru my GP if possible. Would like to at least understand how it works and why it is lasting this long. MO is too busy to answer my long list of questions.
Did your MO referred you to the endocrinologist or your GP?
Thanks for your suggestion of Dexa scan. Otherwise I wouldn't have know that i am osteopenic. Still not sold on taking calcium supplements yet, so i am up the in take on fish and tofu to boost my calcium.
3 reasons to exercise: reduce chance of recurrence, prevent type 2 diabetes, slow down or hold off osteopenia. Start to think maybe i should get a job as a group fitness instructor or something.
With you now in hospital environment all the time for your school, sanitizers are our best friends. I still have the list from you during chemo about food safety etc.
How is school going?
