Hi I am new here, my husband was diagnosed with CLL 3 years ago (although only given the dx two years ago - but that is a different and longer story). He has really only been given poor information, a lot of "that has nothing to do with CLL" and a referral to oncologist who only seems to want to know if there are night sweats and then he will do "a little chemo" otherwise not interested in talking. So I am on the hunt. I ran across the following quote but am having trouble finding the article. I am currently looking at the Vit. D bit. I had asked family doc to do a Vit. D level and they refused saying he had no symptoms, so now I am looking for an recent article to support the test. I know about the Mayo one, but it is not conclusive enough for this doc. Anyone out there know about the article they are referencing?
Vitamin D may have a protective association against chronic lymphocytic leukemia –but not lymphoma cancers on the whole — according to a new study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
I will likely be back with some more questions.
