See a dietitian
What is a Dietitian?
A dietitian is an expert in nutrition. Dietitians are the only qualified health professionals that assess, diagnose and treat diet and nutrition problems. Registered dietitians are regulated by the HCPC – Health Care Professionals Council.
A dietitian will be able to give you advice on how to cope with nutrition problems or eating difficulties. This advice may include the use of pancreatic enzymes and nutritional supplements.
Where can I see a dietitian?
Dietitians are a key member of the Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT) in hospitals that treat patients with pancreatic cancer. If you are not currently seeing a dietitian and think you may benefit from seeing one, ask your medical team or your GP to refer you.
