    I have cyclic neutropenia and was wondering what foods I should be eating in order to possibly decrease the symptoms.

    Hi there, diet can certainly help to reduce the risk of developing infection due to your low immunity. The following recommendations may help you:

    • Meat and meat alternatives – need to be cooked well
    • Dairy products – need to be pasteurised (avoid soft cheeses and probiotics)
    • Fruit and vegetables – peeled and cooked preferred. Avoid overripe or damaged fruit or vegetables, pasteurised OJ is ok,
    • Herbs and spices – need to be cooked
    • Water – bottled mineral water

    For more detailed advice and a plan that works for you I recommend you speak to an Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD). You can find an APD by logging onto www.daa.asn.au
