Cancer Nutrition Counseling

Good nutrition is an important weapon in the fight against cancer. Eating the right kinds of foods before, during and after treatment can help you:

  • Feel better
  • Stay stronger during cancer treatment and recovery
  • Help limit recurrence

Although each patient's experience is unique, chemotherapy and other cancer treatments often cause dietary challenges that can affect your ability to eat a balanced diet:

  • Mouth and throat problems
  • Loss of appetite
  • Mouth sores
  • Dry mouth
  • Weight fluctuation
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Change in taste and smell

At the Eleanor N. Dana Cancer Center, you don’t have to manage these complex challenges on your own. Our team of registered dietitians and nurses can help you plan a diet that satisfies your appetite, meets your nutritional requirements and boosts your immune system and energy levels. They will review ways to maintain your calorie and nutrient intake during and after treatment.

To set up an appointment with a dietitian, contact 419.383.4585, or talk with your care team.
