Low grade lymphoma: It is a disorder where one produces more antibody, specifically igm. This antibody is large so when in increased numbers can lead to several problems. These include what is called hyper viscosity syndrome. As there is too much of this protein, it tends to clog small arterioles and can lead to such things as mouth sores, kidney problems and other issues. The goal is keep the level down.
