A Phase II Study with Antioxidants, Both in the Diet and Supplemented, Pharmaconutritional Support, Progestagen, and Anti-Cyclooxygenase-2 Showing Efficacy and Safety in Patients with Cancer-Related Anorexia/Cachexia and Oxidative Stress.
Wow–if you can get through that title, your way ahead of the game….I remember a patient a little while back now who went for chemotherapy for breast cancer. Her oncologist specifically told her not to take any kind of supplement because he didn’t want it to “interfere” with his chemotherapy. To be blunt, this guy probably hadn’t cracked a medical journal in decades. For every provider, this is inexcusable. For an oncologist it goes beyond words. The patient ended up with a colostomy bag for about 6 months and had a very rough time with the chemo. How much of that could’ve been avoided?
