Good Nutrition During Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy is the primary treatment for most mesothelioma patients. It is not an easy process by any means: common side effects include pain and severe nausea. People who are dealing with these symptoms rarely feel like eating, but good nutrition is a vital part of staying healthy enough to fight the disease. Researchers have developed some tips for cancer patients that could help them keep their weight up throughout treatment.

Protein is a dietary requirement, especially for people who are trying to keep their strength. It can be found in a variety of foods, including lean meats, nuts, eggs, and legumes.

Carbohydrates found in whole grains are a key source of energy. Try to eat pasta, whole wheat bread, rice, or hot cereal whenever possible.

There are a variety of canned shakes or drinks that contain high amounts of protein, vitamins, and minerals. They can be a good way to get the nutrition you need when you do not feel up to eating a meal.

Dehydration is a common problem for people suffering from nausea and vomiting, so be sure to drink plenty of fluids. It is not recommended that you drink a lot of fluids while eating a meal, as this can increase nausea. Instead, make sure you drink plenty of water or sports drinks throughout the day.

If you are having difficulty making yourself eat, try eating small snacks throughout the day instead of full meals. They will easier to finish and to keep down.
