- Question from SandraL: Are there any vitamin supplements suggested to fight fatigue? Thank you.
- Answers - Diana Dyer, M.S., R.D. There are a couple of trials going on that are sponsored by the National Cancer Institute that are looking at other dietary components, such as Carnitine supplementation and its effect at eliminating fatigue. Those studies are ongoing, so there are no recommendations at this point.
The Ask-the-Expert Online Conference called Managing Fatigue During and After Treatment featured Diana Dyer, M.S., R.D., Tish Knobf, Ph.D., R.N., F.A.A.N., A.O.C.N., and Lillie Shockney, R.N., B.S., M.A.S. answering your questions about ways to keep up your energy, how nutrition can affect fatigue, and how exercising can help.
