Why does nutrition and maintaining a healthy weight matter for people living with pulmonary fibrosis? How can what you eat and how you eat help you deal with medication side-effects? What does it mean to eat well?

Managing side-effects of medications through nutrition

In May 2021, members of the Toronto Support Group welcomed Sarah Dales, Registered Dietitian in Transplant, Toronto General Hospital, University Health Network and Deepanshi Salwan a nutrition student and Master of Public Health candidate at the University of Toronto to their monthly Zoom meeting. Dales and Salwan shared a presentation with the group on how nutrition can help mitigate the side-effects of medications.

You can view the slides from the presentation or read about the presentation in our June 2021 newsletter.

The Transplant team from Toronto General Hospital, UHN, also provided a tip sheet on nutrition while on prednisone.
