In brief: Healthy, ?Vit D
I agree with dr. Noga about a "healthy" diet in general.
Shanafelt et al (blood 2010 nov 3 epub) showed that vitamin d insufficiency is a poor prognostic factor in cll. However, we do not know if vitamin d replacement is of benefit yet. Still something to consider -- again for general health -- as well as a potential factor in cll.
