Cooking and Eating to Fight Leukemia

Diet can be a powerful weapon in the fight against leukemia. It’s important for patients to eat foods full of antioxidants that help fight cancer and keep the body strong, so it can keep on fighting.

Here’s how to arm yourself with the right foods when you have leukemia.

Cooking To Battle Leukemia

A healthy diet for someone with leukemia is pretty similar to a healthy diet for the general population, says registered dietitian Dee Sandquist, a spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association in Fairfield, Iowa. But with leukemia, it’s even more important to follow healthy eating guidelines, because leukemia treatment can make patients nauseated and reduce their appetites, interfering with their best intentions to eat well.

Eating well can help you feel better and stay stronger during and after cancer treatment. Patients who eat well and maintain a healthy body weight often tolerate treatment side effects better. And good nutrition also helps the body replace blood cells and tissues broken down by treatment.

A healthy lifestyle plays a key role in keeping the body strong, supporting the immune system (the cells and proteins that defend the body against infection) and reducing risk for some diseases, such as certain kinds of heart disease and some cancers. Most nutrition professionals agree that a good diet for everyone, including cancer survivors, is a varied, balanced diet of nutrient-rich fruits and vegetables; whole grains; and low-fat proteins, such as fish, lean meats and poultry.

Before preparing foods for a leukemia patient, you must thoroughly clean all food surfaces to avoid the risk of food contamination. Raw meats and uncooked vegetables and fruits must be kept away from prepared foods. Regardless of the patient's ANC, all fruits and vegetables must be thoroughly washed before being eaten or prepared. All leftover foods must be promptly refrigerated and then thoroughly heated before eating and should be consumed within 24 hours of initially cooking the foods. Failure to follow these basic food safety guidelines can introduce infection and cause treatment complications for the patient.
