Can changes to diet improve quality of life for those with an MPN? How can patients achieve a balanced diet? Dietitian Julie Lanford and Dr. Ruben Mesa of UT Health San Antonio Cancer Center weigh in on the impact nutrition has on an MPN diagnosis and provide guidance on taking an individualized approach to healthy eating. They also discuss what is considered a balanced diet, how eating well can help maintain energy levels, and tips for changes to diet when dealing with symptoms like fatigue. MPN patient advocate Julia Olff also shares the changes she’s made to her diet since diagnosis and how they have affected her lifestyle and well-being.
