EAT THIS, NOT THAT! Signs There May Be Something Wrong with Your Blood, Including Weight Loss

In science and medicine, information is constantly changing and may become out-of-date as new data emerge. All articles and interviews are informational only, should never be considered medical advice, and should never be acted on without review with your health care team.

I was asked to answer some questions and share information on blood cancer by the popular online site: Eat This, Not That!

While the questions were about blood disorders in general and not chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma (CLL/SLL) or even leukemias specifically, you might find my responses and those of Dr. Eric Tam helpful in developing a broader understanding of what can go wrong in blood cancers and other disorders.

The topics were:

  1. What to Know About Blood Disorders
  2. How Blood Disorders Can Affect Daily Life
  3. Risk Factors for Blood Disorders
  4. Signs of a Blood Disorder
  5. Blood Disorders Can Be Treatable Depending on the Diagnosis

Stay strong. We are all in this together.
