Comment from: Paul, 65-74 Male (Patient) Published: December 07

I was diagnosed with cold agglutinin disease (CAD) two years ago. My hands turned blue while sitting in the garage at a computer. I went to see my internist who referred me to a hematologist. She was very aware of the disease and performed many blood tests. My hemoglobin was low enough to start on 625 mg of iron immediately. She took time to explain the disease. I feel well and do what I want. My condition is not as serious as some. No cancer. I try to stay warm.
