Maintaining a Healthy Diet During Chemotherapy – Infographic
Chemotherapy, as anyone who has gone through, will tell you, can come with its very own, serious side effects. The radiation from the treatment can make your mealtime especially difficult as chemotherapy can alter your appetite and your sense of taste and smell. It can make you nauseous, making it difficult to keep food down. You may experience diarrhea or constipation, severe weight loss or gain, and/or pains from dry mouth or mouth sores.
With all these potential symptoms, chemotherapy can make maintaining a healthy diet extremely difficult. And this is at a time where your body needs those nutrients to stay healthy and fight off illness and infection. This is why we at Breast Cancer Car Donation created a guide to help you eat healthy during this difficult time. While this may not be an end-all solution, it offers helpful tips that can give you ideas and help you start your diet plan. Don’t hesitate to consult your doctor on your diet plans either.
