Nutrition is a very important factor in your health during cancer treatment and to reduce your risk of cancer recurrence. Although cancer treatment may reduce your appetite for various reasons, it is important that you maintain a healthy eating routine. Eating well will improve your energy level and help you to feel better.
New Milford Hospital's registered dietitians can help you learn about the types of foods to eat, the time of day that may be best for the appetite, the importance of staying hydrated, and what to do if you have difficulty eating. They can also answer your questions about dietary supplements and other issues related to your nutritional needs.
Our registered dietitians are available by appointment on weekdays and can be reached at:
