Expert Video - If I have AML, what should I watch out for in daily life?

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) expert Dr. Sandra Kurtin explains that patients with AML and their caregivers should try to stay as generally healthy as possible. Avoiding infections, eating a healthy diet and exercising can all make a difference. You also stay healthier if you and your caregivers understand your type of AML (AML subtype) and how to cope. Staying hopeful, even with a poor outlook, helps you appreciate daily life and tolerate treatment better. Your health care team can adjust treatment to your personal wishes if you tell them what you want.
