Answer

Diet concerns are as follows:

  • Low-salt diet to decrease risk of hypertension

  • Diet high in iron and folic acid content to help recover from anemia

  • High-energy diet to help patient regain lost weight

Social worker or psychologist consultation can help the family cope with the illness.
