Topic: Articles on cachexia and nutrition: SENSITIVE

All,

I am posting links to some articles on cachexia and nutrition in cancer, as this is so very common in certain types of cancers, especially cholangiocarcinoma.

Re: Articles on cachexia and nutrition: SENSITIVE

Thanks so much for these articles.  It's important for patients to know this information after the shock of diagnosis and sometimes we are so involved in the treatment that these side effects are overlooked.  Good to me informative, as this is the stage I am going through right now, but was aware of it.   It's tough, and you would think medical research can treat this symptom.
