Nutritional support

Good nutrition is important—especially if you have cancer. Treatment for cancer, and cancer itself, can affect your appetite and how the body digests, absorbs and uses food. Cancer-related malnutrition can make you tired, weak and unable to receive the treatments you need to get better.

From your first visit to Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) and throughout your care, our nutrition and metabolic support team will recommend nutrition interventions, including nourishing meal plans and dietary supplementation, to keep you strong, combat side effects and prevent treatment interruptions before they arise.
