- Hydroxyurea and pomegranate juice
sorry for my bad english.
i am a retired physician, specialist in i.medicine & gastroenterology.
have essencial thrombocythemia since year 2000.
mild hypercholesterolemia once treated wiht symvastatin 20 mg/day.
during a certain time i began to take 100 cc of pomegranate juice/3 times per week. before that my platelets were +/- stable at 400-450.000 y also my cholesterol at normal.
after a few weeks of drinking pomegranate juice suddenly found: platelets fell to 300.000 and there was a leucopenia with absolute leucocytes count 1.7.
also the cholesterol ldl and total fell to levels that never had before. at this stage stoped pomegranate juice and stoped hydrea and after more or les normalization began again hydrea when al the blood values return to a normal or higher level.
I think that there is, probably, an interaction between hyderea and also smvastatin with pomegranate juice.
for an unrelated cause i stoped symvastatin a few months ago. no i have a problem again with platelets that are high (480.000) and leucopenia (perhaps myelofibrosis ?). since a week we lowered de hydrea and i again began taking 100 cc of pomegranate juice twice a week. i have an appointment to my hematologist in 4 weeks and will do blood tests.

starting chemotherapy, was told to get off hydroxurea before and during treatment. Started treatment 5 days ago and am suffering now. Major pain in chest wall lower back
From this study (4 months ago):
I am tired but my eyes seem to be darker underneath. I look like I do if I'm unwell. I eat well and I haven't had alcohol since April and I don't smoke. My bloods are due again this Thursday. I started on 2 tablets then went to 3 now I'm back on 2 as my bloods were low on last test. My psoriasis have dotted about a bit since but I know they will all come back again if I stop with the tablets. That's what I want to do but I don't want that old body back, I am a new person now. Since taking hydroxycarbamide I have had a few very bad sore throats also.
Thanks for your help
