CHEMOTERAPY REMISSION PATIENTS
Mold contamination is widespread throughout the world with a plethora of negative health affects felt by the individuals exposed to it. Children, pregnant women, the elderly and individuals with immunodeficiencies are more prone to experience these negative health effects. For cancer reemission patients, maintaining a healthy lifestyle and environment is essential. You may have heard about the negative effects of the molds lurking in your home. But do you know about mycotoxins? Mycotoxins are the waste products of certain kinds of fungi. When mycotoxins infiltrate your property they can bring about different symptoms such as shortness of breath, asthma attacks, rashes, allergies, coughing, fever, memory loss, etc. During chemotherapy and after, a patient’s immune system is weakened increasing the chances for fungal infections to occur. Our service is specifically crafted for chemotherapy and chemotherapy reemission patients. By utilizing a signature process that not only locates the source of your problem but also organically takes care of it we ensure that your health remains intact.
What You Need To Know About Fungal Infections
Chemotherapy and radiation lower your white blood cell count. As you receive your cancer treatment, your white blood cell count can become very low, also known as neutropenia. During this time, your body will have trouble fighting infections, including fungal infections.
Fungal infections can range from mild to life-threatening. Some fungal infections are mild skin rashes, but others can be deadly, like fungal pneumonia. Because of this, it’s important to seek treatment as soon as possible to try to avoid serious infection.
Fungal infections can look like bacterial or viral infections. If you’re taking medicine to fight an infection and you aren’t getting better, ask your doctor about testing you for a fungal infection.
The type of cancer you have can affect your risk. If you have a blood cancer like leukemia or myeloma, you may be at greater risk for getting a fungal infection than people with other types of cancer.
Your risk of infection can change based on the strength of your chemotherapy. Some types of cancer may require stronger chemotherapy medication than others, especially the blood cancers. This is sometimes known as aggressive chemotherapy. Aggressive chemotherapy weakens your immune system and can put you at risk for getting a fungal infection.
Your hospital stay matters. After your transplant, you may need to stay in the hospital for a long time. While there, you may need to have procedures that can increase your chance of getting a fungal infection. Where you live (geography) matters. Some disease-causing fungi are more common in certain parts of the world. If you live in or visit these areas and have cancer, you may be more likely to get these infections than the general population.
