Subject:Chemo related fatigue

Other than trying to consume more protein, are there any other dietary measures that I can take to combat chemo fatigue?

Patients receiving chemotherapy can experience significant fatigue. There are times when we request a dietary consult to assist our patients when they are experiencing significant malnutrition which can contribute to their cancer-related fatigue. In addition, patients who are diabetics can experience elevation in their blood glucoses which require adjustments in their medications as well as assistance in following a diabetic diet. Overall, we want to assist our patients in maintaining a good nutritional status as much as possible while they are receiving their chemotherapy.
