Diet and Nutrition

Is there a special neuroendocrine cancer diet?

This is the question we’re asked most frequently about nutrition, and the answer is straightforward: no. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all diet suitable for everyone with neuroendocrine cancer. You may need to adjust your diet based on factors like your overall health, treatment regimen, specific type of neuroendocrine cancer, or if you’re experiencing weight loss. However, there isn’t a universal diet recommendation.

However, maintaining a normal, healthy, well-balanced diet is important, as it can:

  • Help you stay at a healthy weight.
  • Support a strong immune system, protecting against infections.
  • Assist in coping with treatment.
  • Preserve your fitness level, providing energy for exercise and daily activities.
  • Aid in recovery and healing after treatment.
