Nutrition During Cancer Care
Adequate nutrition during your cancer treatment is essential. CoxHealth's dietitians can help you make sure you're getting the nutrition you need throughout your therapy. The right food choices can often control, and can sometimes prevent, the side effects of your cancer treatment. By working with one of our dietitians, you'll learn how to get the best nutritional value from your diet and how to prepare meals that offer optimal nutrition. Our dietitians will help you develop a nutrition plan that's specific to your needs and works with your medications, treatments and food preferences. We'll monitor your nutritional status to ensure you're maintaining your nutritional needs during this time.
If you or your care team feel you need to consult with a dietitian during the course of your treatment, your physician may order a consultation. Talk to your physician to learn more.
