Im in the same boat as you. MDS but not conclusive and most likely immune. Coombs tests are negative but for sure inflammation of unknown origin is a problem. Having to take steroids to combat that. Hoping CBDs might help that. Magnesium helped to a point too. Was on 40mg of prenizone and now down to 15. Magnesium eliminated my hives that have plagued me since the beginning 5 years ago. But below 15 my muscles really start to ache and stiffen.

So I do not have a MDS diagnosis right now, my blood counts have gone up since 2010 and you can see that in my last post. My doctor says it is not likely that anything I do with my diet would change anything but as you will see if you look at other posts on this board others have also see some hope in a holistic approach. There is no magic bullet that I have come across but I suggest that you read through all of the posts and come to your own conclusion on if it is worth pursuing. take care...
off topic note to my response, went to dentist recently and he was amazed at the health of my gums, I hope it's not a fluke, the only change I made was the Turmeric root in my shakes. I use about a 1 inch piece, I had tried cooking with the spice in the past and didn't like it and did see any positive results. A few months ago someone mention that it was a root they sell in local store and started incorporating it in my shakes. A google search of Turmeric and Gum health pulls up several studies with positive results.
