Are chronic myeloproliferative disorders serious?
Piedmont Heart Institute answered
Chronic myeloproliferative disorders are serious conditions that require treatment to lower abnormal levels of blood cells in the body. However, your prognosis for this disease greatly depends on which type you have. Left untreated, serious complications such as heart attack, stroke, infection, and internal bleeding may develop. Therefore, it is essential to have an annual physical exam and blood tests to help diagnose and treat any abnormalities as early as possible. Treatments can greatly relieve your symptoms and help prevent serious complications.
