Yes, we do have a specific diet for BMT patients regardless of auto/allo. We follow general FDA food safety guidelines for transplant patients (attached) along with only purified water/ice. We also only allow 30 minutes to eat once food is prepared.
Let me know if you have any other questions! 🙂

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.
