I am 83 years diagnosed with multiple myeloma about 4 years

Customer Question

I am 83 years diagnosed with multiple myeloma about 4 years ago. My IGG was 2388, IGA 55; Kappa Light Chain Free was 922.17 and KAPP/Lamb FR was 110.04 last blood work March 19. My oncologist did not prescribe treatment or show concern. I am concerned about the large difference from the norm. What do you think? Will nutrition or antioxidants help?
