Patient Education

Helpful resources for infusion therapy patients

We’re passionate about patient care, and that extends beyond the basics of infusion therapy. Many of our patients are facing rare, chronic, or complex conditions and may have lots of questions as they learn about managing their condition.

Our staff is always here to help! If you have questions, please call your regular infusion location or ask a staff member at your next appointment.

Health tips during infusion therapy

During infusion therapy treatment, it’s important to take care of your body overall. While no two patients experience the same infusion therapy journey, these health tips can help you keep progressing on the road to better health and help manage any symptoms that may occur with your condition or in response to infusion therapy. 

Get plenty of sleep

Aim to sleep for at least seven hours each night so your body has adequate time to rest and repair itself. Getting enough sleep also helps reduce stress, improves mental clarity, and can help reduce other symptoms from chronic conditions.

Eat a healthy diet

Focus on building a balanced plate with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. Healthy fats such as olive oil or avocado can help nourish your body, while fruits and veggies provide important nutrients. Limit your sugar intake and drink plenty of water.

Identify food allergies

Some autoimmune symptoms can become more severe after eating certain foods such as gluten, soy, dairy, fruits, shellfish, nuts, and corn. If possible, work with an allergy specialist or dietician to help identify any foods that you should limit or avoid.

Exercise regularly

Staying healthy also means keeping your body in shape, so make it your goal to get at least 30 minutes of moderate physical activity four to five days a week. If your condition limits physical activity, talk with your doctor about possible options for exercise.

Wash your hands

You can minimize your risk of infections by washing your hands regularly to remove any foreign bacteria you may have picked up throughout the day. Use soap and water and wash your hands for a full 20 seconds every time.

Manage your stress

Stress is a normal part of life, especially for those with chronic conditions, but how we respond to and manage that stress matters. Find some activities that bring you joy to help manage stress or try some regular deep breathing or meditation exercises.

Try to stay warm

Those with sensitivity to the cold due to their condition or their infusion medication should always carry a just-in-case jacket, even if it’s a hot day. During the winter, try using hand and shoe warmers to stay warm.

Practice time management

Many patients experience fatigue spells, which is a sign from your body to slow down and rest. Even if you’re feeling well, try to pace yourself by spreading out daily activities and not overworking your body.
