    Hi Ange,

    We do have a diet that our patients follow during HSCT for both auto’s and allo’s.  I have sent an email with the teaching sheet which outlines the diet.

    Please let me know if you have other questions.

    Do your centers have specific BMT diet guidelines for transplant patients? If so, are these only for allos, or auto transplants too?

    Thank you for your help,
