There r different types of leukaemias r there, due to which their treatment is also different.  To know exactly the subtype of leukaemia, we have to certain blood and bone marrow tests, so kindly go ahead with this.   Regarding malnutrition status , obviously it affects outcome, but because of this don't deny initial Bm and blood transfusions.   Lot of advanced in recent year in hematological disorders r there .Thx
