Good nutrition during cancer treatment and recovery can help keep up your strength and energy, maintain your weight, heal and recover faster, better tolerate treatment-related side effects, and lower your risk of infection.
What you need to know before choosing a Dietitian:
Cancer treatment may change your appetite or make it difficult to eat. It can also mean eating things that aren’t normally recommended when you are in good health. A Registered Dietitian with knowledge in this area will be able to guide you to foods that provide the nutrition your body needs.
What to expect when working with a Dietitian:
A Dietitian is an important part of your overall cancer journey. They can help manage symptoms, prevent weight loss, and maintain optimal nutrition status before, during, and after treatment. They will consider your nutritional needs, type of treatment, and side effects to design an eating pattern that supports your healing.
