Hi just wondering if a glass a wine a night will really make you anemic. Per my Onc, this is a possibility.
Question for Trey or anyone who wants to take a shot at it..

A little wine is good. Alcoholism is bad. It is alcoholism which causes anemia over the long term, not a glass of wine daily. Maybe a person who is severely anemic should avoid all alcohol, but that is not the condition of most CML patients. Red wine is also beneficial in several ways due to the nutrients (especially important minerals) in the skin of the grape, which gives red wine its color. White wine is made without skins. Drink red wine in moderation and life will be better.

My Oncologist told me to have a couple glasses of wine everyday, sometimes I might have a couple three glasses,BUT I KNOW MY LIMIT (when the bottle is empty). Billie

From Drukers' mouth to your ears via ours: "Who deserves a couple Martinis more than a CML patient?"
