Dietary Issues 🍊πŸ₯—πŸ” – Diet, the Digestive System and Neuroendocrine Cancer.

When thinking about dietary issues and Neuroendocrine Cancer it is important to understand our digestive system.
This animation will give you an overview of how it all works:
Is there a special Neuroendocrine Cancer diet?This is the question about nutrition we’re asked more than any other – and, in a word, the answer is no. There’s no one specific diet suitable for everybody who has Neuroendocrine Cancer. There may be adjustments you need to make to what you eat. You may need to add things to your diet based on your general health, your treatment, the type of Neuroendocrine Cancer you have or if you’re losing weight. But there isn’t a special diet that everyone should follow.

Unsurprisingly, though, as when you’re dealing with any kind of cancer, eating well makes sense. A normal, healthy, well-balanced diet can help you to:

  • Stay at a healthy weight.
  • Maintain a healthy immune system, which can protect you from infections.
  • Cope with treatment.
  • Maintain your fitness level, so you have the energy to exercise and do everyday tasks.
  • Recover and heal after treatment.
