Nutrition is an important part of self-care. Focus on plant-based foods:
- Vegetables and fruits
- Whole grains
- Beans and legumes
- Nuts and seeds
Limit processed and fatty meat, fried foods, and those high in added sugar. Many people with multiple myeloma are short on vitamin D, folate, vitamin B12, and sometimes iron. Talk to your doctor about testing your nutrient levels. Check with them before you take any supplement.
