Nutrition and Dietary Support
Proper nutrition can result in better responses to cancer therapy, and yet, malnutrition is common among cancer patients. Side effects from treatment can cause weight loss and nutrient deficiencies, which weakens the body's ability to fight cancer.
As part of our team-wide commitment to excellence in cancer care, a registered dietitian is available at the LMH Health Oncology Center. Specially trained in nutritional health management, LMH Health dietitians offer early nutritional intervention to replenish nutrients and help our patients ensure adequate calories, protein, fluids, vitamins and minerals throughout treatment.
