Multiple Myeloma an incurable disease, but I have spent the last 25 years in remission using a blend of conventional oncology and evidence-based nutrition, supplementation, and lifestyle therapies from peer-reviewed studies that your oncologist probably hasn't told you about.

Hi David- I will be finishing chemo in four weeks, then stem cell transplant. I have experience side effects of extreme exhaustion and diarrhea followed by constipation. Can I expect to. Side effects improve? Thanks, Carli-
Results-HCT survivors reported increased physical (p < .001), mental (p <.001), and overall fatigue (p < .001) as well as increased anxiety (p < .05) and depression (p < .01) compared to healthy controls. Red blood cell (RBC) levels were significantly lower in HCT survivors (p < .001). RBC levels for both groups, however, were in the normal range. TNF-α (p < .001) and IL-6 (p < .05) were significantly higher in HCT survivors.
Conclusions- Persistent fatigue in HCT survivors compared to healthy controls with occasional tiredness is accompanied by increased anxiety and depression along with decreased RBCs. Elevated TNF-α and IL-6 may be important biomarkers.
