Gastrointestinal cancer patients, who develop cancers in the stomach, colon, and liver, pay more attention to their diet than other cancer patients. This is because cancer has developed in the organs that digest and absorb food.

In general, gastrointestinal cancer patients should avoid eating fatty foods, foods that are too sweet or salty, and directly grilled over an open fire. Eat a diet centered on fresh vegetables and fruits, eat eggs, tofu, and milk, and eat a good amount of protein, as well as various vitamins and minerals.

But even if you know the outline like this, you are curious about the details. It raises questions about how many times a week can I eat meat, if I can’t eat raw fish, and whether I should avoid beef bone broth as it is an oily food.

Gastrointestinal cancer patients need expert advice to help them find ways to improve their quality of life while eating a healthy and nutritious diet.

A meeting to provide such advice will be held on the 30th (Saturday). The clinical nutritionist team of the Korean Society of Clinical Nutrition will provide information to patients and their caregivers on what to eat for digestive cancer patients and how to plan a nutrition program.

On this day, for the first time in Korea, digestive cancer specialists gather to hold the ‘Quality of Life Campaign’ for patients with digestive cancer and their families. In addition to advice on nutrition, comprehensive and systematic information such as pain and mental health is provided.

Digestive cancer is a cancer that has a high incidence in Korea and has a strong impact on quality of life. Therefore, the Korean Society for Gastroenterological Cancer Research plans to help them find ways to improve their quality of life by talking with patients through this campaign.

Experts from the Korean Society for Gastrointestinal Cancer Research, the Korean Pain Society, and the Korean Society of Clinical Nutrition give lectures on diet, stress, and pain management for digestive cancer patients, perform rehabilitation exercises with a rehabilitation therapist, measure body composition and nutrition with a nutrition counselor, create a terrarium Programs such as healing the back and receiving medical advice are carried out. A small prize will be presented through a simple medical knowledge quiz event.

This campaign will be held in two parts (11-12:30 am and 2:30 pm) at Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP) Notification Hall 2 from 11 am to 4:30 pm. Digestive cancer patients and guardians who want to participate can apply by phone (070-7727-2278) and attend through on-site registration. Enrollment is limited to 100 people on a first-come, first-served basis.
