The dietetics department aims to prevent and treat issues that arise surrounding nutrition and food and that are caused by your illness or treatment. Nutrition and exercise play an important role in maintaining or improving your physical condition. That's why our dietitians help our patients reach an optimal nutritional situation.
You can come to see our dietitians at the Netherlands Cancer Institute if you are experiencing issues eating or drinking, if you have questions about nutrition, or if you are experiencing unintended changes to your weight because of your illness or treatment. Your dietitian can offer advice about dietetic preparations, tube feedings, or parenteral nutrition.
