What is the purpose of a consultation with a dietician?
A consultation with a dietician also helps Patients increase their awareness of the impact that a diet can have on the treatment of prostate cancer.
A healthy and balanced diet is one of the crucial elements of comprehensive oncological care. This holds especially true for prostate cancer where an optimal intake of unsaturated fatty acids (primarily omega-3) is key to improve the Patients health. The primary sources of omega-3 fatty acids are: fish, seafood and vegetable oils. Clinical trials show that these substances show anticancer properties, can increase the strength of the immune system and substantially decrease the risk of prostate gland infections and diseases. An increased intake of soy based products, tomatoes and broccoli is also recommended.
What does a consultation with a dietician involve?
A consultation with a dietician allows for the transfer of professional knowledge pertaining to proper dietary behaviour during the treatment of prostate cancer, as well as prostate cancer prevention. Each Patient receives an individually tailored diet plan, adjusted to the Patient’s needs and restrictions.
Who should consider a consultation with a dietician?
A consultation with a dietician is recommended for Patients on every step of the prostate cancer diagnostic, treatment and convalescence process, as well as for people who are interested in prostate cancer prevention via diet. Prostate cancer prevention should be a topic of interest for people who have a family history of the disease.
