Nutrition plays a crucial role in the journey of cancer patients. As we learn more about the unique nutritional needs of individuals battling cancer, laboratory testing has emerged as a valuable tool for tailoring nutrition plans.

Why Laboratory Testing Matters in Cancer Nutrition:

Personalisation of Nutritional Plans:

Every cancer patient is unique, and so are their nutritional requirements. Laboratory testing allows assessment of an individual’s specific needs, considering factors such as the type of cancer, treatment regimen, and any side effects experienced.

Identifying Nutritional Deficiencies:

Laboratory tests can pinpoint deficiencies in vital nutrients, such as vitamins, minerals, and protein. By addressing these deficiencies through targeted nutritional interventions, patients can improve their overall well-being and enhance their ability to withstand cancer treatments.

Monitoring Treatment Effects:

Regular laboratory testing helps track the impact of cancer treatments on a patient’s nutritional status. Adjustments can be made to the nutrition plan as needed, ensuring optimal support throughout the treatment journey.

Common Laboratory Tests in Cancer Nutrition:

  1. Functional Blood chemistry
  2. Comprehensive Digestive Stool analysis
  3. Sex hormones
  4. Full thyroid panel
  5. Adrenal Stress Profile
  6. Genetic/nutrigenomic testing

Working with Healthcare Professionals:

Laboratory testing for cancer nutrition is not a one-size-fits-all approach. It requires collaboration between cancer patients, oncologists, registered dietitians, and nutrition specialists. Together, they can interpret test results and create a personalised nutrition plan that optimally supports the patient’s overall health and treatment journey.


Laboratory testing plays an integral role in tailoring nutrition plans for cancer patients. By assessing individual nutritional needs and deficiencies, these tests empower healthcare professionals to provide personalised guidance and support throughout the treatment process. If you or a loved one is facing cancer, consult with your healthcare team to explore how laboratory testing can be integrated into your cancer nutrition plan.
