Nutritional Services

Our Dietitians and Nutritionists focus on assessing the individual dietary and nutrition needs of each cancer patient and providing practical, scientifically sound assistance

Good nutrition is especially important if you have cancer because both the illness and its treatment can affect your appetite. Cancer and cancer treatments can also affect your body's ability to tolerate certain foods and absorb nutrients.

Dietitians and Nutritionists can assess and manage your nutritional needs before, during, and after you have completed treatment for cancer.

Side effects from cancer treatment as well as symptoms of disease can be difficult to manage and often interfere with eating. You may be experiencing low appetite, taste changes, feeling full, fatigue and energy loss, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, difficulty swallowing, weight loss, weight gain, or other nutritional challenges.

Nutrition is a vital component of cancer treatment and prevention. Consult with one of our Nutritionists.
