What, when, and how you eat can help to improve your response to cancer treatment and help ease burdensome symptoms and side effects – according to University of California, San Francisco, U.S., Dietitian Greta Macaire, MA, RD, CSO, consuming the proper nutrients can mean fewer complications, faster recovery, and improved strength and energy.  She presented a talk at a Neuroendocrine Tumor Research Foundation (NETRF) Patient Education Conference at Stanford University.  It can be challenging to prepare nutritious meals and snacks when a NET patient feels tired and weak. Your sense of taste may have changed. You may also be coping with nausea and/or diarrhea.  Greta Macaire talk offered also advice on online resources featuring recipes about healthy eating during cancer care as well as a number of cookbooks.
