    Has anyone used Beta-glucan? What were your results?


    Paula – newly diagnosed and started taking beta glucan in the form of the supplement Wellmune. I have blood work coming up and I am wondering if I’ll see any changes to my neutrophil counts. Of course even if there is a change, making a causal relationship between the two is questionable, but would be anecdotal support.


    Paula – I had my first CBC since I started taking beta-glucan, and my numbers were better across the board (RBC, WBC, and Hb, platelets were the same, but in normal range). Of course, I have no idea if the two are related, nor do I know if these improvements will persist. But I thought I’d provide an update. Next CBC will be in 4 weeks.
