Having a brain tumour, and undergoing treatment for it, can affect your appetite and cause other symptoms, such as fatigue and nausea. Eating well can help to combat these effects and help keep your energy levels steady.
Diet and nutrition is of great interest to the scientific community and those affected by all types of cancer, not just brain tumours. While the medicinal properties of different foods and micro nutrients are still being investigated, the most important thing for any patient is to make sure that their diet is sufficient and balanced enough to help them and their bodies pull through treatment and recovery. The information we provide is meant to help you understand what a balanced diet should be like, it gives practical advice for when treatment makes it difficult to eat and it addresses related topics such as the ketogenic diet.
