Diet, Nutrition and Treatment Side Effects
It’s essential for a patient (and their caregiver or loved ones) to make informed food choices before, during and after cancer treatment. So dietary care, education and counseling are among the many resources we put at your disposal at City of Hope.
Our dietitians are at the forefront of expertise in how proper diet impacts a patient and their ability to fight illness. Call on them to help you with correcting nutritional deficiencies, minimizing treatment side effects, creating nutrition plans you can follow after treatment and more. If you’re interested in a consultation, please speak to your physician for a referral.
