Patients with a cancer diagnosis may have nutrition specific issues such as weight loss or gain, changes in appetite and taste, nausea, vomiting, constipation or diarrhea. Dietitians who specialize in cancer care help patients choose foods to help manage side effects and to enhance health during and after treatment.
Individualized Clinical Nutrition Counseling
At the Avera Cancer Institute, our registered dietitian will work with you and/or your family to develop an appropriate and individualized nutrition plan. Whether your needs center around healthy eating during treatment, symptom management, weight loss, weight gain or healthy eating post-treatment, our dietitian can help you gain knowledge and feel comfortable with your nutrition needs.
Dietitian services are made possible through generous contributions to the Avera McKennan Foundation and are offered as a complimentary service to patients with a cancer diagnosis. Call 605-322-7929 to connect with a registered dietitian.
