Research Type: Blood/Bone Marrow/Lymph Cancer
Fatigue or tiredness is the most common symptom reported by people diagnosed with lymphoma, yet there are few treatments and none that focus on healthy diets. We will be studying if a whole food diet rich in fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, whole grains and seafood called the fatigue reduction diet (FRD) can decrease fatigue that starts or worsens after being diagnosed with lymphoma. Fatigued lymphoma survivors will be randomly placed into the FRD or non-diet health information group. They will receive counseling and be followed for 12 months. The FRD could offer a self-care treatment for fatigue in lymphoma survivors, a group that has not been included in many cancer survivor studies, despite their growing numbers and high burden of fatigue. factors have mostly been studied in individuals at low familial/ genetic CRC risk; we need research on those at higher risk. We will test our hypothesis that healthy lifestyle factors are important for reducing CRC risk, even for those at higher familial/genetic CRC risk, in 21 cohort studies in the Pooling Project of Prospective Studies of Diet and Cancer, a large international consortium. The evidence generated by this study will inform which lifestyle and dietary factors may reduce CRC risk, to enable appropriate prevention strategies and recommendations for individuals with different familial and genetic risk.
