Onco nutrition

A cancer diagnosis brings along a lot of questions about nutrition and diet. Proper nutrition is essential for living well during and after cancer treatment. Research proves that proper nutrition is an important factor in boosting immunity and helps in preventing cancer, as well as increases the effectiveness of cancer treatment

At Cytecare, to administer personalised care to all its patients, the multidisciplinary team of experts devise the dosage, the pattern of administration and the implications of the therapy on the overall well being of the patient.

Why Cytecare

When a cancer patient undergoes a series of treatments involving surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, hormone therapy, biologic therapy (immunotherapy), or a combination of treatments, the rendered treatment(s) manages to exterminate the unhealthy/cancer cells. However, as an unwanted side-effect, the healthy cells in the patient's constitution have to bear the aftermath which gets rendered in the following manners:

  • Loss of appetite
  • Sore mouth or throat
  • Dry mouth
  • Changes in taste or smell
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhoea
  • Constipation
  • Fatigue
  • Loss of body weight

The above complications/side-effects necessitate proper nutritional intervention for the patient's well-being. A fine-tuned Nutritional intervention not only helps in boosting one's immunity but also acts as a deterrent against Cancer thereby increasing the overall effectiveness of cancer treatment.

The field of Onco-Nutrition is aimed at making the Cancer patients feel better & stay stronger. In Cytecare, we as a team, tirelessly work with patients, their families & the rest of the medical fraternity in order to ensure that the optimum diet reaches the Cancer patients both during and after their treatment.

Our team comprises of a rich mix of experience & expertise on dealing with a wide spectrum of dietary interventions that are deemed absolutely necessary when it comes to ensuring effective treatment of cancer patients. We believe in meeting out the optimum care aimed at supplementing a cancer patient's on-going treatment with the vitality that aids in his/her cure in the best manner possible. We have a tried & tested process which has yielded positive results in many cancer survivors and we take pride in making them smile post our effective consultations.

Healthy eating

When it comes to healthy living, food and nutrition play a vital part. Small but consistent changes in diet and nutrition can make a big difference to overall health. A healthy diet must provide a good balance of carbohydrates, proteins, fats and other nutrients.

A balanced, nutritious diet has been found to not just help the body cope with the stress of an illness but also aids in the recovery process. A well-formulated diet plan can help you maintain your weight during your cancer treatment. In addition, it will ensure that your body has the right amount of hydration and nutrients that it needs for its repair and healing.

Apart from nutrition counseling in oncology, we also deal with:

  • Diet counseling for onco screening patients
  • Nutrition education for lifestyle diseases
  • Nutrition education for obesity & weight management
