Summary

Waldenstrom's macroglobulinaemia is found among people who take Forteo, especially for people who are female, 60+ old , have been taking the drug for 1 - 2 years, also take medication Levothyroxine Sodium, and have Rheumatoid arthritis. This review analyzes which people have Waldenstrom's macroglobulinaemia with Forteo.
