Nutritional Support

Cancer treatment can have a major impact on your nutritional needs. If you are a patient at the UMC Southwest Cancer Center, a certified dietitian is ready to help you maintain proper nutrition during your treatment.

Our certified dietitians can give you council and help you learn about:

  • How nutritional needs change through treatment
  • What is nutritionally important at every stage of treatment
  • Coping with treatment-related side effects, such as dry mouth, queasiness and poor appetite, that may interfere with proper nutrition
  • The role of nutritional supplements in cancer treatment – what can help and what to avoid

Please speak to a physician or nurse about how to meet with a certified dietitian.
