HealthTree University: Myeloma Bone Disease (Part 4 of 5)
Posted: Feb 26, 2021
An unfortunate symptom of myeloma for many patients is bone disease. We all know that myeloma affects the bone, and it’s often through imaging that we are diagnosed. There are some important questions that need to be answered concerning bone health and multiple myeloma. What imaging and medications should patients be getting? Who needs them? What can myeloma patients do to protect their bones or even heal them? We asked top myeloma specialists these questions and many more in this series of HealthTree University videos on myeloma bone disease.
Below are some video excerpts from our HealthTree University curriculum to help you learn more about this important aspect of your disease. We invite you to watch them all, visit HealthTree University, and create a HealthTree account. By creating a HealthTree account, in HealthTree University you can:
