Maintaining a Healthy Diet During Chemotherapy
While it may be your best option, chemotherapy can be accompanied by some serious side effects, as anyone who has had it knows all too well. One of the most significant side effects of chemo is its effect on your eating habits. Chemotherapy can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, appetite loss, dry mouth, sore throat, loss of taste and smell and fluctuation of weight.
With all these potential symptoms, chemotherapy can make maintain 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.
