I have a close friend who has been stage 4 for 2 years now, and her blood counts are always low at this point. This is a problem, of course, not just for fatigue, but because it diminishes her quality of life since she is always highly susceptible to infection. She cannot take Neulasta, not sure why. I seem to recall that Zoe took a supplement, possibly beetroot, during her chemo, that kept her blood counts up. Does anyone know what exactly she took or how I can find out, or has anyone else taken a supplement of any kind that helped in this regard? I do realize she needs to run it by her onc first, but I promised her I'd look into it. Any help is appreciated. Thanks. Hoping all who are in treatment are managing well. I pray for all of you every day.
Hugs & prayers,
