In June, we hosted a live patient and caregiver education program on Carcinoid Syndrome: Talking to Your Doctor About Symptoms, Diet, and Treatment. If you didn’t have a chance to tune-in, it’s now available to watch at your convenience! We’re sharing short clips from the program on our Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter channels. Here’s a sneak peek of what you can find:
What is the best way to test which foods make me feel good?
Hear from our panel of specialists about the safest way to find out which foods work for you, and which you might want to avoid.
Why does Carcinoid Syndrome cause niacin deficiency, and what can I do about it?
Learn about the relationship between Carcinoid Syndrome and low niacin levels, the risks associated with niacin deficiency, and what foods can help combat those risks.
How can I improve communication with my doctor?
Check out a mini role play between our patient panelist, Beth Leonard, and Dr. David C. Metz of the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania for tips and tricks.
