The recipe booklet and additional cards do not cover your personalised nutritional requirements while undergoing treatment for your blood cancer. It’s important you discuss with your doctor or a dietitian specialising in cancer nutrition any concerns you may have regarding your dietary needs and other changes affecting you. Patients with lowered immune systems as a result of treatment should follow the recommended dietary guidelines provided by your treating centre.
