Smoldering myeloma with diabetes or Addison’s Disease?
Posted Mar 22 2010 12:00am
Yesterday I received a message from a blog reader/curcumin-taker who was recently diagnosed with smoldering myeloma (SMM). She also has Addison’s Disease*. She asked me a very good question: do any of your blog readers have smoldering myeloma in addition to having Addison’s Disease or diabetes? I have no idea, and that is why I am asking this question today…
*A mini-quote from her message: “my adrenals have worn away and I take steroids (hydrocortisone) 3 times a day to replace the natural steroids my glands ought to be producing (very similar to a diabetic who takes insulin).”
*For more info on Addison’s Disease, a disorder of the adrenal glands, please see this Mayo Clinic overview: http://tinyurl.com/ynolcr
If you would like to get in touch with her, please leave a comment here or fill out my blog’s Contact form (on the right)…or send me an e-mail. Thank you!
