What should cancer patients who are considering the Keto diet know?
While there’s the potential that the Keto diet could help some cancer patients, it can also harm others. Depending on your type of cancer or cancer treatment, your body may not be able to break down the proteins and fats. This could lead to other digestive problems.
That’s why it’s important to talk to your doctor or a dietitian before beginning the Keto diet — or any other diet. Different diet plans work for different people, and your doctor or dietitian can help you determine if a new diet will help you reach your health goals.
A dietitian can determine your nutrition goals and help adjust them during each stage and change of your Cancer Treatment. Your dietitian can help you manage your diet to minimize side effects, cope with any new food sensitivities and keep you feeling your best.
