First post: I was diagnosed in May 2016 with CLL and AIHA (auto-immune hemolytic anemia) in May 2016. I have been W&W since that time. My WBCs(33.5K/UL) and absolute leukocytes(21.8K/UL) have been climbing, but not close to a six month doubling and I am asymptomatic. My Hgb has recently dropped from a pre-diagnosis 13.4G/DL to 10.2G/DL. My LDH(LD) is high 491U/L, my hapyoglobin is very low <8Mg/L showing an active hemolytic process. As I am not displaying any signs/symptoms my (2) hem/onc MDs do not feel that I need to be treated for my low Hgb(AIHA), but have mentioned that if I do become symptomatic that the first line treatment is high-dose steroids. Is anyone aware of other treatments for symptomatic AIHA? Obviously I am aware that all medications have side-effects, but would like to avoid high-dose prednisone if possible because of its side-effect profile. Thank you.
