More information on Nutrition and Oncology: Audiocast with Dr. Karen Chapman-Novakofski and Dr. Anna Arthur

Let’s keep the conversation going about Nutrition and Cancer

What a great webinar:

Evidence-based guidelines for the nutritional management of adult oncology patients.

The Nutrition and Wellness were so excited we wanted to extend this conversation going so we asked Dr. Arthur to answer some questions not posed in the webinar.  The questions were as follows:

  • With anorexia being the number one challenge, could you comment on the use of anti-anorexia medications?
  • As lean body mass declines with cachexia, does physical activity help?
  • Supplements may not be helpful, but are the any in particular, that could be harmful?

Listen to this audiocast to find out these answers.
