It is important for people living with kidney cancer to understand the effect of food and nutrition on the body. The kidneys have long been known to play an important role in the metabolism of sugars, proteins, fats and other nutrients, in addition to being one of the most energy-demanding organs of the body. When one of your kidneys has a tumour, that balance can change. It follows that changing one’s eating habits to reflect that can help manage side effects of the disease and treatments.
