Dietitians

Proper nutrition plays a vital role in the healing and recovery of patients with blood cancers or disorders who may require stem cell transplants, chemotherapy or other related medications.

Eating well can be very difficult due to the side effects of the treatment and/or transplant. The Dietitian on the health care team meets with patients who have not been able to eat well and may offer suggestions such as: eating small frequent meals, eating nutrient-dense foods and liquid supplements, etc.

Ask your nurse or doctor about meeting with the Dietitian if you have questions regarding nutrition at any point in your treatment.
