Nutritional Requirements of Cancer Patients

Nutrition is a process in which food is consumed and used by the body for growth, to remain healthy, and to rejuvenate itself. Good nutrition is important for good health. Eating the right kind of food before, during, and after cancer treatment can help the patient feel better and stay stronger. A healthy diet includes eating and drinking foods and liquids that have important nutrients (vitamins, minerals, protein, carbohydrates, fat, and water) that the body needs. Nutrition therapy helps cancer patients maintain healthy body weight, sustain strength, keep body tissue healthy, and decrease side effects both during and after treatment. A registered dietitian (or nutritionist) is a part of the expert team here at BHIO and will work with patients, their families, and the rest of the medical team to manage the patient’s diet during and after cancer treatment.

Goal of the program

Funding the entire/ a part of the treatments like surgery/radiation therapy/chemotherapy/supportive care etc., for economically weaker cancer patients registered at our hospital. Patients from economically weaker sections suffer without nutritional food during the course of the treatment.
