Just for historical background. I am treatment naive. So I am trisomy 12, zap 70+(one test says yes another was inconclusive for zap 70),have a rare BCL-2 gene translocation and I am unmutated. My specialist feels that upon studying six years worth of blood tests that I have had CLL for six years, although actual diagnosis did not happen until January 2016 ,two years ago! So I do a lot of exercise, eat macrobiotically and i take some supplements. So last week after 3 blood tests in as many months, my ALC dropped from 19.2 to 10.78, to almost what it was at diagnosis, which was 10.4,two years ago today. Also my red blood cells for the first time ever, dramatically improved and platelets did very well, too. The RBC count actually went normal for the first time in 2 years. With this happening shouldn't I have seen improvement in my Neutrophil counts? They went up 4/10 of a point, but they are still very low at 1.8 And could someone please explain to me how my LYMPH% number would figure into this? It was 83% in APRIL 2017 and was 55% on my last test, last week. What does that mean exactly, or is that not so significant. Thanks. I won't see my cll specialist until May and this test was done by my GP as part of an annual physical. He really couldn't answer my questions .
Replies to this post have been turned off, because the focus of the post has shifted from that outlined in the post to promoting CLL remission from following a dietary protocol, when the evidence provided doesn't necessarily support that linkage. While efforts to improve our health through a better diet and improving our fitness can provide many benefits and are to be encouraged (as outlined in many other posts to this community) sadly the expectation of a dramatic improvement in our CLL is likely to be met with disappointment - Admin
