Supporting the

Neuroendocrine Cancer Community

UK wide WEBINATTER: DIET & NUTRITION

When you’re dealing with cancer, whether undergoing treatments or not, 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.
  • Be well enough for treatment – and help keep you well through treatment.
  • Maintain your fitness level, so you have the energy to exercise and do everyday tasks, including restful sleep.
  • Recover and heal after treatment.

 

Is there a special or particular diet that can help if you have neuroendocrine cancer? The simple answer is no . . .however . . .there may be adjustments you can make to what you eat depending on your general health, your symptoms, your treatment, the type of Neuroendocrine Cancer you have and/or if you’re losing weight. Expert assessment and advice from a registered dietitian is recommended.

Advice on nutrition is best sought from a registered dietitian (RD) – as they are the only nutrition-trained healthcare professionals to be regulated by law, governed by an ethical code to ensure that they always work to the highest standard. Dietitians often work as integral members of multi-disciplinary teams to treat complex clinical conditions such as diabetes, chronic fatigue, malnutrition, and neuroendocrine cancers.

We are delighted to have you join us for this DIET & NUTRITION session featuring our special guest speaker; Yasmin Chotai de Lima (RD MSc. Clinical Lead Dietitian, Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust).
