Are you wondering what are the best foods to eat if you have carcinoid syndrome? What changes should you make to your diet if you have neuroendocrine tumors? The neuroendocrine tumor (NET) community is invited to attend a national webcast on Wednesday, October 18 featuring nutritionist Leigh Anne Burns, who has extensive experience working with NET patients. The free webcast will begin at 7 pm EST, 6 pm CST, 5 pm MST, and 4 pm PST. This presentation, sponsored by Lexicon Pharmaceuticals is part of a special series of webcasts designed to give patients living with neuroendocrine tumors direct access to thought leaders in the NET community.
The development of carcinoid syndrome, after a diagnosis of a neuroendocrine tumor, can be an intense and intimidating learning. It’s a change to your health that comes with questions and uncertainty, as the treatment path is long and different for every individual. But it’s also an opportunity to find answers and become your own best advocate for your overall health and future care.
Physicians from MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas, recently published an analysis to determine the frequency of carcinoid syndrome in patients with neuroendocrine tumors.
On March 1, 2017 Cancer Coach Live in cooperation with the Carcinoid Cancer Foundation held a live program focused on carcinoid syndrome. The event featured NET cancer expert Edward M. Wolin, MD; CCF Chief Operating Officer Grace Goldstein; and patients Mitch Berger, Giovanna Imbesi, and Rick Mainwaring. Watch this discussion about best practices in diagnosis and treatment.
The Carcinoid Cancer Foundation and its generous partners are excited to introduce the Carcinoid Syndrome website. This website is a space for news and education on carcinoid syndrome, along with information on neuroendocrine tumors (also known as carcinoid cancer). We believe this site will be a great resource for patients, caregivers, and physicians alike – looking to learn more about carcinoid syndrome.
