Hi, i have been diagnosed with breast cancer. I was wondering if ketogenic diet is good for me or should i stay with balance diet.
Thank you for posting on our Ask the Nurse section. I am sorry to hear that you have been diagnosed with breast cancer. We wish you the very best with your treatment. It would be great to speak to you on the phone and hear how you are and what treatment you are having. Our phone number is 1800 200 700 and we are all cancer nurses here Mon-Fri 9-5pm.
We do have a lot of information regarding diet and cancer plus publications we can post to you. We also have information on our website about ‘common myths around nutrition and cancer’ which includes information on the ketogenic diet. A balanced diet is what is recommended not the ketogenic diet.
I do hope we will hear from you
Sorry to hear that you have been diagnosed with breast cancer. I'd say stick with your current diet as you need to keep your strength up for what's ahead of you.
Wishing you the best of luck with your treatment.
