Why In Patients With AML The Stomach Feels Sore After Drinking Milk?
Good afternoon I want to ask, my sister is an AML sufferer and now her lymphatic and liver are swollen at this time my sister is consuming pediasure milk. But my sister is complaining of an upset stomach, she said painfully
Hello Mei, Thank you for the question.
Does this stomachache complaint only feel when consuming milk or also felt at other times?
Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) / acute myeloblastic leukemia is a blood cancer that causes the bone marrow unable to produce mature myeloid white blood cells. Mieloid is a white blood cell that is responsible for fighting infection. This disease is caused by DNA mutations in stem cells in the bone marrow which causes the bone marrow to produce immature blood cells. These immature and unhealthy blood cells develop a lot and then replace the mature red blood cells in the bone marrow. These blood cells will enter the bloodstream and then enter the organs. Abnormal blood cells that enter the liver and spleen will cause enlargement of the organ and cause disruption of the function of the organ. Akiatnya sufferers can feel peurt pain, flatulence, or easily full. Enlargement of the liver and spleen that occurs in your sister may be the cause of complaints stomach pain.
Try to recognize the triggers of this stomach ache, whether only caused by consumption of certain foods or not. If it has happened for several days, you should encourage your parents to consult with a pediatrician for further information regarding your sister's complaints to find the exact cause. You can do a warm compress on your little sister's stomach to help reduce pain. Try to maintain your sister's food and drink intake.
I hope this helps.
