I am very interested to hear views from all of you who had a transplant.
I am sure you all received education on what foods are safe or unsafe due to taking immunosuppressents.
I do have knowledge of food microbiology as I started my career in this field.
My take on foods you should definitely avoid are foods that have a risk of listeria contamination, listeria can cause meningitis. These include patè ( supermarket packaged is ok), soft cheese if not processed, cheese with soft rind, blue cheese, cheese made with unpasteurised milk ( hard cheese such as parmesan ok ), unwashed salad, salamis (processed ok), live yogurt ( processed ones ok), cured meats ( high salt ones such as parma ham ok).
As far as I am concerned, there is little hardship in avoiding these kind of foods, I here people saying they are struggling to follow a recommended diet?
