Neutropenia and the neutropenic diet

Neutropenia is a low level of neutrophils, a type of white blood cell, in the blood, meaning your body finds it harder to fight off infections. For people with weakened immune systems, a neutropenic diet can help protect them from bacteria and other harmful organisms found in some food and drinks.

Here, you’ll find useful information on neutropenia and the neutropenic diet. Always consult your medical team about your individual situation.
