Hi David- My husband is 59. He was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma yesterday. The bone marrow biopsy indicated a plasma cell percentage of 10%. I understand this is monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS).
My husband’s hematologist/oncologist said the diagnosis was MGUS but because of his neuropathy both feet she felt he should go to Dana Farber and start a clinical trial which includes chemo. My husband’s oncologist said that he had multiple myeloma based on the neuropathy.
He rides a bicycle for up to 2 hours frequently. My husband is 6 feet tall and weighs 158. He used to weigh 174. I am looking for naturopathic treatment to build his immune system. Please advise. Molly
“Objective: To determine the long-term outcome of patients with monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS).
Patients and methods: We reviewed the medical records of 241 patients with MGUS who were examined at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn, between January 1, 1956, and December 31, 1970.
Results: Follow-up was 3579 person-years (median, 13.7 years; range, 0-39 years). Only 14 patients (6%) were alive and had no substantial increase of M protein at last follow-up; 138 patients (57%) died without evidence of multiple myeloma or a related disorder; a malignant lymphoplasma cell proliferative disorder developed in 64 patients (27%). The interval from diagnosis of MGUS to diagnosis of multiple myeloma or related disorder ranged from 1 to 32 years (median, 10.4 years).
Conclusions: The median survival rate of study patients with MGUS was only slightly shorter than that of a comparable US population. Risk of progression of MGUS to lymphoplasma cell malignancy is indefinite and persists even after more than 30 years of follow-up, with no reliable predictors of malignant evolution…”

There are more than 100 different types of nerve damage. The various types may have different symptoms and may require different types of treatment…
In many instances, nerve damage cannot be cured entirely. But there are various treatments that can reduce your symptoms. Because nerve damage is often progressive, it is important to consult with a doctor when you first notice symptoms. That way you can reduce the likelihood of permanent damage.
Often, the first goal of treatment is to address the underlying condition that’s causing your nerve pain or nerve damage. This may mean:
