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.
