Just sayin' - vitamin D helps keep your progenitor cells differentiating - even leukemic ones. Keep your vitamin D levels up in the high normal range, but be careful not to fall down (last sentence).
In my own case, I always had some blast cells in my bone marrow tests. Once I elevated my vitamin D levels to high normal, blasts disappeared. It is the uncontrolled expansion of blast cells that kill in CML (as well as other Leukemia's).
Disclaimer: vitamin D is not a 'cure', but we do know from emerging science that vitamin D is vital for cellular differentiation and apoptosis (normal cell end of life). It seems reasonable, based on studies now emerging, that low vitamin D status shifts the balance in favor of Leukemia and that high vitamin D (high normal, not overdosing) shifts the balance away from Leukemia. Just another risk factor to reduce.
