Now closing in on 8 years living with this disease, I must thank my family practitioner for noticing low hemoglobin readings and elevated creatin levels when I was 54. She recommended a Hematologist/Oncolgist as well as a Nephrologist (I am also a Diabetic) to find out what was going on. It was quickly discovered I was in the very early stages of Multiple Myeloma. By dealing with this (chemo and transplants). I’ve been ahead of the disease and remain in pretty good health. I feel it’s imperative to have a good physician who leaves no questions unresolved. That’s where it all began for me.
