Eating well during cancer treatment
Nutrition is important during treatment and recovery from cancer therapy. Expert nutrition intervention can improve patient outcomes and is often associated with fewer hospital admissions and readmission's, better medical outcomes and improved quality of life. Dietitians are experts in food and nutrition. They can translate scientific nutrition information into personalised and practical advice.
Good nutrition during cancer treatment can help:
- maintain body weight and prevent muscle loss
- improve immune function
- improve recovery time from treatment and help wounds and damaged tissue heal better
- improve quality of life
Adding a dietitian to the health care team can really pay off.
