Whether newly diagnosed, undergoing active therapy, recovering from treatment or in remission and trying to prevent cancer recurrence, nutrition is an important component of cancer care and management.

Major goals of nutrition in cancer are:

Preserve muscle mass to better tolerate treatment impact

Aspects that are kept in mind while planning the diet protocol are:

9
Careful review of individual’s appetite and oral intake

Maintenance of weight

Managing side effects of treatment

Chemoprevention: is the use of a medication, vitamin or supplement to stop cancer from developing. It can lower the risk of a cancer recurrence or a new cancer for those at high risk.

Minimize treatment related side effects
9
Digestive symptoms like nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, diarrhea.

Food preferences.

Post surgery requirements.

Managing co existing complications like diabetes, hypertension and abnormal blood reports.

Supplementation based on the type of treatment given (radiotherapy, chemo therapy and immunotherapy)
