Nutrition is a part of Cancer care

It is also important to maintain and improve the patient’s nutritional level, especially during treatments.

Good nutrition assists the body to heal, helps fight infections and maintains overall health. In fact, dietary treatment should be part of cancer patients’ treatment from the very beginning.

Matters related to diet, such as proper nutrition, weight control and changes in appetite and the sense of taste can arouse concern and questions among cancer patients. Many of the patients are also concerned about how cancer and other serious diseases can be prevented through diet in the future.

Our dietician Reijo Laatikainen provides patients with practical instructions taken to the level of ingredients. Dietary treatment is always planned on an individual basis.

Our Certified Dietitian is a professional in his field and at the patient’s service at Docrates Cancer Center.
