Supportive care before, during and after cancer treatment
Nutrition plays an integral role for all cancer patients. Whether patients are undergoing active therapy, recovering from cancer therapy, or in remission and striving to avoid cancer recurrence, early detection of nutritional problems and prompt intervention are essential. Nutritional care can prevent or reduce the complications from treatment and prevent or control comorbidities such as heart disease, diabetes, and hypertension. A nutrition program also may prevent another malignancy from developing.
We use a combination of diagnostic tools, including bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA), to assess your nutritional status. The BIA is a general indicator of your overall health, and it is one of the best indicators of cell membrane function and nutritional status.
We personalize your treatment plan because no two patients are alike. Your nutrition prescription will address your individual issues, especially your need for calories and protein. Our goals include: Prevention or reversal of nutrient deficiencies. Preservation of lean body mass. Help you tolerate treatment. Minimize nutrition-related side effects and complications. Maintain strength and energy. Protect immune function. Aid in recovery and healing. Maximize quality of life.
We monitor your dietary habits and laboratory values to determine your nutritional requirements over time. Some cancer survivors benefit from physical medicine to control pain, swelling and improve lymphatic drainage. We provide physical medicine services at our facility. Contact us to find out more.
