I just returned from an appoinment with my Onc after 1 month of taking 400mg Gleevec. This time they did a more elaborate metabollic panel so they found out while all my other stat are within normal range, the abnormal ones are about the level of fat in my blood.
This time I forgot to take a picture of my test result so I didn't remember it exactly. But basically, my total cholesterol level is lower than normal (I remember vaguely it was about 165 but then it will make no sense because from what I heard this is a desireable value) with lower LDL and higher HDL; the Onc told me it was no problem but of course I did research after that. In the wiki page they say leukemia can be a cause of this phenomenon.
So I want to ask what your experience is. Is anyone have the same issue and what can we do to deal with this?
P/S: By the way my other counts seem to be good (WBC: 5.15; RBC: 4.52; PLT: 214) the liver settled down (GOT: 30 from 48 2 week earlier). No visible side effect except some minor fatigue and moment of absent-minded (to be honest I have been like that my whole life).
