Myeloproliferative neoplasms, Mediterranean diet recommended for patients

-

There is no specific diet for patients with chronic myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs), diseases that affect blood-forming cells and have a major impact on quality of life. There is no diet that has a specific impact on certain indicators of disease, such as platelet counts or hematocrit. However, a balanced diet can help reduce the risk of major complications, such as those affecting the cardiovascular system. In general, therefore, patients with MPN are advised to follow the Mediterranean diet, already widely studied for its benefits in the prevention and management of numerous diseases, including cancers. This is what is reported in an article published in ‘Allies for Health’, a portal dedicated to medical-scientific information created by Novartis. To try to demonstrate a specific action of this diet on people with myelofibrosis, polycythemia vera or essential thrombocythemia – we read in the article – a clinical study is currently underway on 900 people with myeloproliferative diseases, started after a first trial had demonstrated the feasibility for patients to follow this diet. No ban, but a strong recommendation to limit the intake of red meats and cheeses, as well as animal fats, coffee and alcohol in general. Be careful even with simple sugars and processed foods. Better to prefer a diet rich in fruit and vegetables, fish, wholemeal flours and seasoned exclusively with extra virgin olive oil. In this way it is possible to keep fit and at the same time decrease some cardiovascular risk factors, such as LDL cholesterol, better known as ‘bad cholesterol’. Some symptoms of chronic myeloproliferative neoplasms and the therapies patients undergo – abdominal pain, nausea, diarrhea – can make it difficult to eat adequately. It is therefore important not only to follow a balanced and healthy diet – reports the article – but also to evaluate the nutritional status to avoid malnutrition. In the event of significant side effects or weight loss, you should discuss the best diet to follow with your doctor.
