  1. My uncle has this and he’s in the spent phase which has him suffering a lot. I wish I knew more about treatments that can calm his pain without affecting his disease. Are there any alternative medicine to treat his pain aside from the heavy pain meds? Of course, this won’t substitute the meds…I’d like to know if there are diet changes or exercises he could do to make him a bit more comfortable

  2. Osmosis is the best creator for insightful educational content. I actually created my own channel ViralEd to show even MORE educational content – Come check it out and I will return the favour

  3. The complications caused by polycythemia vera can be devastating! I have seen several strokes and heart attacks.

  4. Very nice. Could have mentioned that one of the possible outcomes of PV is transformation to acute myeloid leukemia.
