I am answering for my late husband.
Prior to diagnosis he was only on meds for high blood pressure (Lisinopril).
He worked hard on a farm for many years but was inactive most of the prior 5 years.
He ate most anything, except for sugary foods, but I would not consider him a healthy eater.
He was a smoker for 50+ years and had completely quit 3 months before diagnosis.
Heavy alcohol use years ago.
No inflammation but he did suffer from heartburn for several years, after eating acidic foods.
He lost 1 maternal uncle to bladder cancer and one paternal uncle was recently diagnosed with bladder cancer. No other cancer on either side of his family has ever been reported.
He had a flight physical 6 weeks before diagnosis. His hemoglobin was slightly below normal. Unfortunately no chemistry panel was done and doctor only told him to take iron for the low hemoglobin.
12 years before diagnosis he had a severe reaction to a tetanus shot, which caused bi-polar brachial neuritis. Other than that he had been healthy for 59 years.
