    Abby Langer RD, is an invited speaker for the May 25th Bladder Cancer Conference.

    She has requested that questions are posted for her, so she can further customize her presentation, and use the allotted time, at its best!

    Please post your diet, food, nutrition questions related to coping/having bladder cancer, and I will forward them to her.



    Thanks Leva!
    Some questions:
    > How much water is the right amount to drink per day to keep bladder healthy?
    > What is the recommended diet when recovering from Radical Cystectomy?
    > Do certain foods help reduce bladder infection and not cause bladder discomfort ?
    > Are there certain foods to avoid during treatment – TURBT, BCG, Chemo? (red meat, milk, coffee, alcohol, some types of tea?
    > Should suplements be considered even if on a healthy diet of fruits, vegetables, fish, turkey, whole grains?



    Are there some food/vitamins/supplements myths that many of us buy into with little or no scientific support or anecdotal evidence specifically relating to cancer?


    I would like to know if she has any information on how effective Vitamin D is in preventing cancer. I also read somewhere that Vitamin D often enhances the effectiveness of cancer treatments including BCG.

    I would also like to know if there is any solid information out there on recommended amounts of supplements specifically for cancer patients? Diet is still the key I know but sometimes when we are ill we cannot eat as we should and supplementation may be necessary.
