Question: How much protein per day for kidney cancer survivor? My sister is 50 years old. Three years ago, she had left kidney cancer and it was removed. Since that time, she's always afraid of eating whatever food which has protein in there, especially, meat and seafood because she thinks her remain kidney will be damage if she eats so much protein. So she just eat tofu, vegetable, fruit and around 4 ounces of fish or chicken breast every day and drink some soymilk with 1 once of protein powder. Anyone who know how much protein she should consume per day, please let us know. Your answers would be greatly appreciated.

Answer: It is better to avoid High protien foods specially for Kidney cancer survivors. A moderate amount of protien can be taken say daily about 20 grams. You are encouraged to eat foods that provide optimal nutritional benefit. A registered dietitian consults with you to develop an individualized meal plan. Selections include fish, poultry, legumes, low-fat yogurt, fruits and vegetables, whole grains and cereals, and other healthy food choices. Vitamin and mineral supplements help provide nutrients that your diet may not, and offer a boost where illness may have depleted your body. The CTCA supplementation plan includes nutrients that may support your immune system and may reduce toxic side effects. A physician will recommend daily dosages of various nutrients, including: -Beta carotene -Selenium -Vitamin C -Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) -Vitamin E -Others as appropriate The Oncologist who is treating may be consulted so that he can tell the exact food values and restriction as he will know the full condition of the patient and give or suggest correct amount of protien and others.-
