Nutrition

We know healthy eating is important, but research has shown that eating healthily can be beneficial for those with cancer, and that benefits may include a reduction in symptoms and treatment side effects, and improved quality of life.

Senior Specialist Dietitian, Glenda O’Connor, who specialises in complex nutrition support for HPB patients, has prepared information for those diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma (CCA), what to eat, digestive problems during and after treatments and how to manage them, plus a number of hints and tips for those with CCA.
