Katie Walker

April 21, 2022

For the AML World Awareness Day, Know AML was pleased to speak with Katie Walker, King's College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, London, UK. We asked, Why is it important to maintain a healthy diet during treatment?

Walker begins by explaining the content of a balanced diet in the context of different food groups. She discusses meat and dairy alternatives, as well as specific recommendations within food groups such as opting for wholemeal carbohydrates to increase fiber. Finally, she touches on supplements, weight maintenance, and reduction of appetite.
