Whats the prognosis for someone with Hairy Cell Leukemia?

My friend just called me today saying that the doctor told her that she has Hairy Cell Leukemia. What can i do to help her? Whats her prognosis?
She is only 18
She is probably lying to me. Thats typical of her. :(

I have never heard of Hairy Cell Leukemia in an 18 year old, and I saw leukemia patients for 20 years. Below is an excerpt from a Mayo Clinic Review.
From http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/hairy-cell-leukemia/DS00673
"Somewhere between 600 and 800 people are diagnosed with hairy cell leukemia each year in the United States. Hairy cell leukemia affects more men than women, and it occurs most commonly in middle-aged or older adults. Children and teenagers don't get hairy cell leukemia."

You might double check the facts in this case.
If she does truly have Hairy Cell Leukemia - the Mayo Clinic Review should help explain the disease for you. Also, here is an NCI review http://www.nci.nih.gov/cancertopics/pdq/treatment/hairy-cell-leukemia/patient/

Yes, a child has ever gotten HCL.

I am seeking information on ways to reduce white cell counts in Chronic Lymphatic Leukemia?

are there any herbals.naturopathic,mineral suggestions in assisting the reduction of white cell count for Chronic Lymphatic Leukemia?

Pranayam will help to reduce the white cell count in chronic lymphatic leukemia and will help the body to fight the cancer.Over long term you will recover fully.
The pranayam techniques:
Bhastrika - Take a long deep breath into the lungs(chest not tummy) via the nose and then completely breathe out through the nose.Duration upto 5 minutes.

Kapalbhati -(Do it before eating) Push air forcefully out through the nose about once per second. Stomach will itself go in(contract in). The breathing in(through the nose) will happen automatically. Establish a rhythm and do for 20 to 30 minutes twice a day.(Max 60 min/day) Not for pregnant women. Seriously ill people do it gently.

Anulom Vilom - Close your right nostril with thumb and deep breath-in through left nostril
then – close left nostril with two fingers and breath-out through right nostril
then -keeping the left nostril closed deep breath-in through right nostril
then - close your right nostril with thumb and breath-out through left nostril.
This is one cycle of anulom vilom.
Repeat this cycle for 20 to 30 minutes twice a day(maximum 60 minutes in one day).
You can do this before breakfast/lunch/dinner or before bedtime or in bed.Remember to take deep long breaths into the lungs.You can do this while sitting on floor or chair or lying in bed.

Bhramri Pranayam -Close eyes. Close ears with thumb, index finger on forehead, and rest three fingers on base of nose touching eyes. Breathe in through nose. And now breathe out through nose while humming like a bee.
Duration : 5 to 10 times

Only by doing you will benefit and will feel good that you can do something to help the body.Copy and print this to improve your technique and stay focused.This is simplified pranayam for everyone and you do not have to go to classes to learn. This is for life, unlike short term classes where you do it in the class then stop when classes are over.  (+ info)

What is the normal T- Cell range? Can the T-Cell count be over the range without having Leukemia? ?

My T- Cell count is 1900 above the normal limit. A doctor thought that the count could mean I have too many immature T cells. What type of Leukemia could I have?

T cells are a type of white blood cell. A measurement of the T-cells is often called a T-lymphocyte count.

The T-Cell count is made up of two components. First, there are what are called your helper T-cells, also known as absolute CD4+ or T4 count. These are the guys who initiate the body's response to invading stuff such as viruses -- they recognize the bad guys. In a healthy adult, the CD4 count should be somewhere between 600 to 1200 cells per cubic mm of blood. It tends to be on the higher side in children and women, and it fluctuates based on what's happening in your body.

There are also Suppressor T-cells, which is known as the absolute CD8+ or T8 count. These guys end the immune response -- they tell your body that all is ok, stop attacking now. The normal range for CD8 is 200 to 1,000 cells.

Some doctors prefer to look at T-cell count based on percentage; a normal CD4 cell percentage in a healthy person is about 30-60%, while a normal CD8 cell percentage is 15-40%.

Common causes of a raised T-cell count include mono, multiple myeloma (a cancer of the bone marrow more common in older people), and Acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL). Here is some information from the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society on ALL:


Best of luck.  (+ info)

Does anyone know anything about Hairy Cell Leukemia?

Hairy Cell Leukemia is what my dad was diagnosed with. I heard it was highly treatable but im still worried. i searched on the internet but i can only find stuff about side effects. I would like to know about treatments and survival rate still. If anyone knows anything that would help a lot!...even if it doesnt put my mind at ease i would rather expect something bad then be surprised by it. ok thank you!

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society has excellent information on Hairy Cell Leukemia on its website.

The site address is: http://www.leukemia-lymphoma.org

I have also included a link under "source" to a pdf document from the society that has detailed information on HCL.

HCL is indeed highly treatable. I could not find a consensus figure on the survival rate but I assure you it is very high. I am sure your dad will be ok.  (+ info)
