A balanced diet, daily activity and exercise as tolerated, and participation in activities of enjoyment are important to maintain optimal health and well-being. A balanced diet can help combat fatigue and illness. Adequate intake of food and fluids also helps individuals tolerate treatment. Fluids are an essential part of a healthy diet. Your body needs fluids to function properly, like a car needs gas to run.
People with MDS may need to follow a special diet if they have a very low white blood cell count or are undergoing a stem cell transplant. Ask your health care providers if there are specific restrictions for you.
