Highlights

No two cancers are the same and neither should your nutrition be. When diagnosed with cancer or at risk of cancer – one immediate question is “What Should I Eat Differently Starting Now?” and “Which Supplements Should I Take and Avoid”. The answer is “It Depends”. It depends on which genetic mutations your tests identified. It depends on which cancer, which ongoing treatments and supplements. It depends on your age, weight, height, lifestyle, allergies and habits. The answer to “What Should I Eat Differently” and “Which Supplements Should I Take and Avoid” for IDH+ Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) also requires understanding of how the food and supplements included in your diet manipulate the molecular pathways which are relevant for cancer and interactions with your treatment.

Internet search to find answers will never be personalized to your cancer type such as IDH+ Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) and lifestyle conditions. Cancers are driven by biochemical pathways and therefore the answers to nutrition questions have to be based on molecular science irrespective of whether one understands it or not.  

For example foods like Asparagus and Bamboo are recommended when undergoing Enasidenib treatment for IDH+ Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). But Quinoa and Chamomile are recommended when treatment changes to Ivosidenib. 

Similarly Neem Extract supplements are recommended with Enasidenib treatment for IDH+ Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). But Birch supplements are recommended when treatment changes to Ivosidenib. So always personalize your nutrition to your cancer gene mutations and other factors.



What is IDH+ Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML)?

IDH+ Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) is one of the different subtypes of Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). In this subtype of AML, mutations of the genes IDH1/2 are detected. The defects or aberrations or mutations in these genes can either drive cancer (tumor promoters) or remove brakes on cancer progression (tumor suppressors).  IDH gene mutations are prevalent in cancer Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). You can visit NIH for information on the prevalence of genetic mutations across cancers. (Reference: Steven N Hart et al, Hum Mutat,. 2020

Diet for IDH+ Acute  Myeloid Leukemia (AML)

Why Are Some Foods Recommended in the Diet for IDH+ Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML)?

Foods and Supplements contain different active ingredients which manipulate different molecular pathways relevant to cancers such as IDH+ Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). Genetic mutations and cancer conditions cause specific molecular pathways to become disrupted. Hence, those foods and supplements are recommended which do not disrupt those molecular pathways further and instead reverse the disruption. For IDH+ Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML), cancer pathways or processes like Inflammation, NFKB Signaling, Oncogenic Cancer Epigenetics, MYC Signaling, Energy Metabolism, WNT Beta Catenin Signaling, RAS-RAF Signaling, JAK-STAT Signaling, PI3K-AKT-MTOR Signaling, Apoptosis, Stem Cell Signaling, Hypoxia, MAPK Signaling, Cytokine Signaling and Sirtuin Signaling get disrupted. Choose those foods and supplements which contain active ingredients which cancel the molecular pathways disruption. Those supplements which interact with the treatments and disrupt the cancer molecular pathways further should be avoided.

The nutrition/diet for cancer such as IDH+ Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) depends on the type of cancer, treatments and supplements being taken (if any), age, gender, BMI, lifestyle and any genetic information available.

The nutrition planning for cancer from addon is not based on internet searches. It automates the decision making for you based on molecular science implemented by our scientists and software engineers. Irrespective of whether you care to understand the underlying biochemical molecular pathways or not - for nutrition planning for cancer that understanding is needed.

Get started NOW with your nutrition planning by answering questions on the name of cancer, genetic mutations, ongoing treatments and supplements, any allergies, habits, lifestyle, age group and gender.

Foods to Eat After Cancer Diagnosis!

No two cancers are the same. Go beyond the common nutrition guidelines for everyone and make personalized decisions about food and supplements with confidence.


Cancer patients often have to deal with different chemotherapy side effects which affect their quality of life and look out for alternative therapies for cancer. Taking the right nutrition and supplements based on scientific considerations (avoiding guesswork and random selection) is the best natural remedy for cancer and treatment related side-effects.
