How might cryoglobulinemia be treated?

The treatment for cryoglobinemia depends on the cause and severity of this condition.  Avoiding cold temperatures may be enough to treat mild cases.  Severe cases may be treated by taking medication to reduce the body's immune response (corticosteroids), by removing some of the blood and replacing it with fluid or donated blood (a process called plasmapheresis), or by specifically treating diseases that may cause cryoglobulinemia (such as hepatitis C).
