EXPERT FUNCTIONAL MEDICAL NUTRITION & PRODUCT GUIDANCE By Phone 205.915.0474
Choosing PALLIATIVE NUTRITIONAL CARE does not mean that a patient has given up on getting well. It simply means that he or she, at this particular place on their journey with cancer, is more focused on a simplified plan for improving their quality of life by reducing discomfort, pain, improving energy & managing/preventing complications.
When I counsel with a patient who is seeking nutritional palliative care we focus on goals such as allaying nausea, adding muscle mass & reducing weight loss, improving serum albumin and other important lab values, improving sleep quality & reducing pain, preventing/managing anemia & renal complications, managing or resolving chronic diarrhea, resolving constipation, improving extended gastric emptying time, managing jejunal syndrome, gastroporesis, blood glucose levels & impaired micronutrient absorption.
