Nutrition & Weight Management
Robust science shows maintaining a healthy weight improves overall health and wellbeing during and post treatment, enhances tolerance to treatment and specific medications, leading to long term survival and improved quality of life.
Reduced appetite, nausea or taste and smell changes? Sound familiar? Are these symptoms impacting on your food intake? Significant reductions in food intake can impact your nutritional status, thus increasing the risk for poor immunity. A dietitian can help ensure you’re achieving adequate nutrition through simple tips to support a healthy, strong immune system and improving your responsiveness to treatment.
Due to a plethora of information available, it’s easy to be confused as to whether elimination or addition of certain foods should be implemented into your cancer journey. An accredited practising dietitian in conjunction with physicians use the most up to date information to ensure your diet will compliment you overall health and responsiveness to treatment.
