Eating Healthy During Bladder Cancer

What You Should Know About Eating Healthy With Bladder Cancer

Eating healthy and having good nutrition during your bladder cancer journey can be hard, but there are severall things that you can do to stay healthy and well nourished.

  • Follow a heart healthy diet. A heart healthy diet generally includes eating a variety of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, skinless poultry and fish, low-fat dairy products, nuts and legumes, and non-tropical oils.
  • Eat foods with plenty of fiber. This will help ease some of the symptoms associated with bladder cancer treatment.
  • Stay hydrated. Each person needs a different amount of water, so talk to your doctor about how much water you should be drinking everyday. If you are having trouble drinking plain water, you can stay hydrated with water flavorings such as lemon or lime slices, or unsweetened herbal teas.
  • Eat plenty of lean-protein. Protein helps your body stay strong throughout your cancer journey.

 

Talk with your doctor before starting a new nutrition plan, or if you have questions about foods you should or shouldn’t eat.
