Diet and nutrition for pancreatic cancer
This section of the website contains pages with information on managing dietary symptoms such as poor appetite, weight loss and diarrhoea.
Nutrition is an important focus for people who have been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. The disease itself, along with treatments such as surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy can change your body’s ability to digest and absorb nutrients from food.
The advice given here aims to be general but depending on the stage of your disease, advice may vary. If you have any concerns, it is best to discuss these with your GP, dietitian or specialist nurse.
