Diet for Liver Cancer

Ask the Nutritionist

Q: What is a good diet for a person with metastatic liver cancer?

C.C. Harris, North Yarmouth, Maine 

A: We recommend that cancer survivors follow a plant-based diet with adequate protein and fluids. Please see our Optimal Diet section for more detail.

With regard to metastatic liver cancer, there are likely additional dietary recommendations based on any digestive symptoms you may be experiencing. Also, there may be further recommendations depending on your specific treatment plan.

Dietary recommendations are unique to each patient and the current context of their cancer treatment. The best course of action would be to schedule a consultation with a Registered Dietitian who could meet with you one-on-one to give you a personalized diet plan.
