Weight Loss and Cancer
Weight loss with cancer can be normal when someone makes drastic dietary changes, but when one continues to lose weight uncontrollably, especially when the diet has stabilized, this is NOT good. When a cancer patient is losing several pounds per week and is below a healthy weight, it may be termed cachexia.
What should a cancer patient do if they suspect cachexia?
- Eat more frequent meals
- Add some complex carbohydrates to your diet
- Allow a loved one to watch the amount of food you are actually eating and to encourage you to eat whether you are hungry or not
- Use tools to help with nausea – essential oils, homeopathic remedies, or even medications
- Get some exercise – even lifting some light weights may help
