Nutrition For Cancer Patients

Right Nutrition is Important

Good nutrition can have positive outcomes in the case of cancer treatment.

Chemotherapy, radiotherapy or surgery during cancer treatment can have side effects such as mouth ulcers, constipation or diarrhoea. Nutrition Counselling can help not just with managing the side effects but also ensuring you eat nutritious food during and after treatment.

Often in Hospital environments, there isn’t enough time to focus on nutrition requirements. We at Prameya Health can help you with your diet and nutrition needs.
