Frequently Asked Questions

FAQs

How important is nutrition during chemo?

Right nutrition during chemotherapy can help a person feel better and reduces treatment-related side effects. Good nutrition before and during chemotherapy can also help to improve treatment tolerance and overall disease outcome.

What foods should chemo patients avoid?

Any foods that are prepared in a unsafe and unhygienic environment should be avoided during chemotherapy.

Does drinking lots of water help with chemo?

How do I get nutrition during chemo?

Eating a diet with the required ratio of carbohydrates, proteins and fats; along with essential vitamins and minerals assure adequate nutrition during chemotherapy. To determine the nutritional needs of a person undergoing chemotherapy, factors like present weight, weight loss percentage, appetite, treatment side effects, cultural preferences and blood reports have to be taken into consideration.

What foods help chemo work better?

Each person has a different threshold to chemotherapy and its side effect profile, and hence we encourage personalised diet recommendations for everyone during chemotherapy.
