Does your diet have an impact on your mesothelioma treatment?

Many forms of cancers come with hopes of remission and recovery. Mesothelioma, however, does not. While there are treatments available, there is still no cure and the mortality rate offers little hope for a long life.

When the chances are that slim, making treatments as impactful as possible becomes even more important. One way to make a difference, for better or worse, is through your diet.

These are the important pieces to a more effective mesothelioma diet.

Balance is key

There are a lot of foods that are particularly helpful if you are undergoing treatment for mesothelioma both to make the treatment more effective and for overall heath. But the primary principle is balance.

Starches, for example can inhibit tumor growth. If tumors aren’t growing, medications that kill cancer cells can be more effective. Starches can also increase glucose, which, in large amounts can make some treatments less effective.

Animal proteins, on the other hand, can cause inflammation. If you have mesothelioma, you should only consume animal proteins in small amounts and try to get protein from anti-inflammatory foods like nuts and yogurt.

Master the myths

A common cancer myth is that sugar causes cancer cells to grow faster. Of course, a high-sugar diet can lead to weight gain and is not a useful source of energy for the body, but sugar does not cause cancer cells to grow any faster than they would otherwise.

Sugar fuels all cells in the body and is found in both healthy and unhealthy foods. Some fruits, for example, have sugar but are also helpful for boosting the body’s immune response.

Whether you are now receiving treatment for mesothelioma or supporting a loved one, keep diet in mind as an essential element to treatment. While a strict diet may not be necessary, a few slight changes can make a significant impact.
