WHAT YOU CAN DO

Health & Nutrition - - SENIOR CARE -

MDS can lower your white blood cell count, putting you at risk for in­fec­tions. Re­duce this risk by: Washing your hands fre­quently in hot, soapy water, es­pe­cially be­fore pre­par­ing and/ or eat­ing food. Car­ry­ing an al­co­hol-based hand san­i­tizer with you to use if soap and water aren’t avail­able. Pre­par­ing food care­fully. Wash all fruits and veg­eta­bles thor­oughly, and en­sure that meat and fish are prop­erly cooked. Avoid peo­ple who are ill, since MDS weak­ens your im­mune sys­tem.
