Diet For Meningioma Patients Who Have Decreased Consciousness?
Good afternoon, I want to ask about the patient “Meningioma with decreased consciousness of Nasopharingeal Cancer suspec with hypoalbuminemia and sepsis” This patient also suffers from hypertension. If given a high-energy and low-salt diet, is it OK?
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Based on the clinical diagnosis you submit, the patient experiences a decrease in consciousness, if this is true there is generally a nutritional intake given through a feeding tube or nasogastric tube (NGT) to avoid the risk of choking and the occurrence of food aspiration into the airways. Or nutrition can also be given parenterally or through an IV line, depending on the needs and clinical condition of the patient.
In general, the nutrients needed by cancer patients are not much different, including carbohydrates, protein, fiber from vegetables and fruit. But there are some things you should avoid, i.e.
Red meat Processed foods such as sausages, ham, bacon, canned foods Avoid foods high in salt, sugar and oily Avoid foods that are fried, grilled, or grilled Avoid preserved or fermented foods, such as pickles, jams No alcohol consumption Avoid excessive consumption of multi-vitamins, because antioxidants can affect the work of chemotherapy drugs. To get more information related to the best according to the patient's condition, it helps you consult it with a doctor who has treated the patient and who can conduct clinical assessments directly.
So much information from me, hopefully it helps.
