Have you ever wondered how cancer cells proliferate so quickly? A person diagnosed with malignant cancer has cells that feed on glucose, the main “food” that fuels the rapid spread of cancer throughout the body. According to McGill University, cancer cells are reported to use glucose “at rates tens or even hundreds of times larger than that of normal cells.” When glucose is scarce, cancer cells use an enzyme to feed on other nutrients in the body to grow. While researchers are finding ways to stop cells from producing this enzyme, we can do our part by watching what we eat, especially if we are at risk for any kind of cancer due to lifestyle, environment, or genetics. A-1 Home Care in Huntington Beach offers high quality in-home cancer care for those who are going through chemotherapy.
The side effects of chemotherapy take a toll on the cancer patient’s emotional and mental health while causing physical discomfort, such as diarrhea, nausea, constipation, mouth and throat sores, and fatigue. The stress of caring for an elderly loved one with cancer will wear you down over time; when you start to feel overwhelmed, you should look into live-in or live-out cancer care at home. Self-care means hiring a competent, trained caregiver who will lighten your burdens so you can rest while they wait on your elderly loved one hand and foot.
