Benefits of Good Nutrition for Mesothelioma Patients

Benefits of Good Nutrition for Mesothelioma Patients

Many of the emotional and physical side effects of mesothelioma treatment can make eating unappealing or nauseating. A nutritious, balanced diet can alleviate the side effects of chemotherapy and other mesothelioma treatments. Nutrition is also a treatment itself, helping your body fight infection and stay strong. In some cases, a strategically planned diet has helped some mesothelioma patients change their prognosis.

If you want to improve your diet, you should speak to an experienced dietician or your doctor. In general, a nutritious diet should include:

  • Lots of fruits and vegetables. These contain vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that fight cancer and support a healthy immune system.
  • Sources of good carbohydrates. Certain carbohydrates are necessary to sustaining energy.
  • Nutritious protein. Ask a dietician about the best sources of protein to support your health.

A health professional may have additional recommendations for nourishing foods to improve your quality of life and support your mesothelioma treatment.
