I’m a long-term multiple myeloma survivor who lives with a fear of:
If you’ve been diagnosed with pre-myeloma (SBP. MGUS or SMM) you want to reduce your risk of a diagnosis of full blown multiple myeloma (MM). That may sound obvious of course.
The issue is to learn how to reduce your risk of a MM diagnosis. Reduce your risk of blood clot, exercise frequently, enhance your brain health, and more. With coffee.
According to the studies linked and excerpted below, COF reduces my risk of another blood clot (DVT), helps my chemobrain,
Now I drink two big, strong cups of COF every morning. Not too much, not too little. My criteria for COF?
I am both a multiple myeloma survivor and myeloma cancer coach. For more information about food, diet, nutrition, etc. for pre-mm, mm patients and survivors, scroll down the page, post a question or comment and I will reply ASAP.
“Coffee consumption is associated with a lower risk of venous thrombosis, but the role of confounding and the pathophysiology behind these findings are unclear…
Methods: From a large case-control study, 1803 patients with a first venous thrombosis and 1803 partner controls were included. With conditional logistic regression, odds ratios (ORs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) for venous thrombosis were calculated for coffee consumption vs. no coffee consumption. In addition, mean differences in hemostatic factor levels between these groups were calculated in the controls.
Results: Coffee consumption yielded a 30% lower risk of venous thrombosis than no coffee consumption
Results were similar for provoked and unprovoked events, and for deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. In controls, von Willebrand factor levels were 11 (3-19) IU dL(-1) lower and factor (F) VIII levels were 11 (1-21) IU dL(-1) lower in coffee consumers than in non-consumers.
After adjustment of the risk estimates for these hemostatic factors, the inverse association between coffee consumption and venous thrombosis diminished (OR 1.0, 95% CI 0.7-1.4). There was no association between coffee consumption and anticoagulant proteins, fibrinogen levels, or fibrinolytic markers.
Conclusions: Coffee consumption is associated with a lower risk of venous thrombosis, which seems to be mediated through von Willebrand factor and FVIII.
“Science-Backed Benefits of Coffee:
“Just last year, a systematic review and meta-analysis of studies looking at long-term consumption of coffee and the risk of cardiovascular disease were published. The researchers found 36 studies involving more than 1,270,000 participants. The combined data showed that those who consumed a moderate amount of coffee, about three to five cups a day, were at the lowest risk for problems…
A meta-analysis published in 2007 found that increasing coffee consumption by two cups a day was associated with a lower relative risk of liver cancer by more than 40 percent. Two more recent studies confirmed these findings. Results from meta-analyses looking at prostate cancer found that in the higher-quality studies, coffee consumption was not associated with negative outcomes.
The most recent meta-analyses on neurological disorders found that coffee intake was associated with lower risks of Parkinson’s disease, lower cognitive decline and a potential protective effect against Alzheimer’s disease (but certainly no harm)…”
