Getting Enough Protein During Cancer Treatment

Getting the right nutrition is essential during cancer treatment. This can be a challenge because chemo and radiation treatments can significantly affect your appetite and can make it more difficult to eat. Therefore, ensuring you still get enough protein, hydration and energy is important.

Protein has a role in building and maintaining lean muscle mass and other bodily tissues. It also has a role in maintaining the function of various other body systems. Protein is a critical building block for your health, especially during cancer treatment when you need to maintain your strength and muscle mass.
