Polycythemia Vera and Nutritional Ketosis
I was diagnosed with Polycythemia Vera several years ago and my treatment regiment has been regular phlebotomies (generally about every four weeks.) I needed to drop some weight so I started a diet plan that would put me in nutritional ketosis. I do not know if the two are related, but I was able to go five months without a phlebotomy. It may just be a coincidence, where I might be stabilizing after the first few years, but I just wanted to pass this along in case it sparked any thoughts from others.
