A person with ganglioneuroma may benefit from the following diet.
There are two main goals for a chemotherapy diet:
Strategies for evaluating weight loss and anorexia include:
- Determine symptoms that might cause loss of appetite.
- Learn what foods stimulate the appetite.
- Provide nutritional and dietary counseling.
Practical dietary guidelines:
- Atmosphere does make a difference: an attractively set table can help take your mind off a poor appetite.
- Aromas may also help stimulate the appetite, such as freshly baked bread and cookies.
- A glass of wine or beer prior to meals may stimulate the appetite.
- Avoid foods that do not interest you.
- Discuss your eating problems with your doctor.
- Give food a chance: food that sounds unappealing today, may sound good tomorrow.
- Stay away from raw eggs and raw meats.
- Take advantage of a good appetite.
- Eat when you feel hungry: do not wait for mealtime.
Benefits of proper nutrition during chemotherapy:
- Improves your tolerance to therapy: a well-nourished body is stronger and more resilient than a poorly nourished one
- Increases the effectiveness of therapy
- Regulates your weight
