    Hi,

    I have been recently diagnosed with NMIBC and scheduled to start BCG treatment in mid January. Does anyone have any suggestions on vitamins/supplements during BCG treatment? Does anybody have experience with Hyperthermia and Mistletoe therapy that naturopathy doctors offer along with BCG ?

    Best Regards

    Hi Ajay

    I wish you all the best in your upcoming BCG treatments.
    In 2007 I found a study regarding vitamin D that highlighted that patients undergoing BCG treatments had better results when also taking vitamin D supplements.
    Here is the link to the latest research.

    I started taking the vitamin D supplement in 2007 when undergoing BCG treatments. Not sure if they actually helped, but I never had a recurrence after 2007, and have been all clear for 11 years now.
