    Hi all,

    Just wondering if anyone is using a pro-biotic (ie: Inner Health Plus) during their chemo treatment?

    Hi Finni,

    Thanks for your comment and question about pro biotics and chemotherapy.

    In a recent study pro biotics were deemed useful in the treatment of chemotherapy induced diarrhoea.

    Pro biotics help to assist bowel function and are therefore considered safe, and possibly beneficial, during chemotherapy.

    For further information on Diet/Nutrition and bowel cancer you may like to have a read through the Diet and Bowel Cancer page on the Bowel Cancer Australia website, in particular our Diet & Nutrition: Your Recipe For Recovery booklet, as well as the Healthier Eating and Living with Cancer booklets on the Patient Information page.

    Kind Regards,
