Fatigue is a commonly experienced side effect when starting or adjusting to treatment, typically due to a decrease in food intake compared to your usual diet.

There are a number of interventions you can implement, such as those below to help tackle fatigue:

  • Increase your water intake
    • Aim for at least 2-3L of fluid daily If you need support with this, our dieticians have created a video you can watch here.
  • Increase your physical activity
