A Doctor’s Advice for Patients with MDS
 
What is your advice for someone who has recently been diagnosed with MDS?
Dr. Rami Komrokji

My advice in general for patients once the MDS is diagnosed, first is to verify the diagnosis, make sure that they have the right diagnosis. Second, estimate the risk of the disease and the chances of this unfortunately to progress to acute myeloid leukemia because the treatment strategies will be different based on that, and then discuss with their doctors what are the strategies available for treatment of their MDS, and if this progresses to AML, what other options they may have available at that time.
