MDS experts, Dr Alan List and Dr David Sallman, describe the role of vitamin supplementation in patients with myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS). They discuss the importance of eating a healthy diet, and the importance of avoiding iron supplements or iron-containing medications in order to prevent iron overload. Work with your health care team to determine which vitamins and supplements you can use safely.
