Diet and Nutrition

In general, cancer patients should maintain a diet that is balanced and increases their caloric and protein intake. Their daily diet should include grains, meat, vegetables, fruits and dairy products.

The European Society for Clinical Nutrition and Metabolism (ESPEN) published an article in 2017 to emphasize the new strategies to update nutritional care in cancer patients :

  • Screen the nutritional status of each patient early in the course of their treatment.
  • Identify signs or symptoms of anorexia, cachexia, and sarcopenia as early as possible.
  • Measure body cell or muscle mass precisely by sensitive imaging technologies (CT and others) or other alternative method for early detection of malnutrition / sarcopenia.
  • Use specific biomarkers to assess severity of cancer-related systemic inflammation, e.g. CRP and albumin.
  • If available, use indirect calorimetry to estimate resting energy expenditure (REE) in order to personalize energy and protein needs.
  • Use appropriate nutrition support as a vital part of cancer care; some new strategies show promise for reducing inflammation and restoring lean body mass.
  • Assess physical function routinely to monitor and guide physical rehabilitation.

Dietitian will assess patient’s current condition including nutrition requirement in different stages of treatment. Furthermore, nutritional counselling and tailor-made nutrition support plan, which may include special nutrients, will be suggested.

Hair Care
