Great News and Not So Good News.

Posted Oct 19 2010 4:50pm
Great News:  My Eosinophilia level continues to go down 
(it is still high, but moving in the right direction)

That is probably a result of the photopheresis treatments I have been receiving every other week.

Not So Good News: Total Cholesterol Level: 259
Triglyceride Level: 599
The increased cholesterol level is probably due to a side effect of the immunosuppresant drug, sirolimus  

Info about Cholesterol Test American Heart Association Link

I most likely will be taking medicine for high cholesterol very soon.

Inflammation in my Arms and Legs:
I have been researching the swelling condition in my arms and legs.  It maybe more accurately described as Eosinophilic Fasciitis (EF)  rather than a direct result of cGvHD.  Not that that makes a big difference, but I'm trying to understand what is happening.  Ha! Ha!
There may be no explanation for me anyway.  ;-)
