Understanding How Pancreatic Cancer Affects Nutrition

People with pancreatic cancer often face nutritional challenges. The cancer itself as well as certain treatments can affect the body’s ability to digest and absorb nutrients from food. This can make it hard to keep up your strength.

Work With Your Healthcare Team

Each person will experience pancreatic cancer and its treatment differently, leading to unique nutritional needs. Good nutrition is key in helping you keep up your strength. Be sure to work with your healthcare team—including a dietitian—to manage your appetite and maximize nutrition.
