Thank you for your quick response. Can you help me understand a bit more?–he said the platelet numbers indicate ET. Then he said the test was positive for JAK 2. Then I read the definition of policythemia vera and it sounded like JAK 2. When i go to the dr. what more should I ask? Are there variations of JAK2/polycythemia vera to be aware of. Presently a baby aspirin has been prescribed but a discussion of possible medication is to be discussed. Any added help is much appreciated. Thanks so much!

Is JAK 2 the same as policythemia vera. My dr. said only that the test was positive for JAC 2.

I continue to read about the effects of certain foods on JAK 2 I would like to know if anyone has also done some similar reading? Also, is there an optimum diet to follow? What foods should be avoided/eaten?

I have read that there are certain foods that can naturally affect platelets–either raise or lower them.. Several articles talk about the lowering effect of cranberry juice and some fruits such as strawberries or other berries. Have any of you seen similar studies posted or had discussions with your doctors about natural options along with baby aspirin and/or medication? Thanks so much!
