Some of the symptoms of myelofibrosis (MF) can have an impact on your appetite or energy level. The stress of living with a rare, chronic blood cancer like MF may also affect your mood. Focusing on your overall health and well-being is an important way you can help manage your MF, including eating right and staying active.
With MF, it’s not uncommon to experience changes in your appetite and level of physical activity that may make it more challenging to maintain your weight. Fatigue from MF may affect your appetite and can decrease your level of physical activity. When you’re less active, you may have less of an appetite.

As you continue to evaluate your MF, be sure to tell your Healthcare Professional about any new symptoms you may be experiencing—even those you don’t think are related to your MF.
