The answer

There is no particular diet to recommend for someone with lung cancer and certainly not one that will affect the condition in any way. I would always recommend to someone in this situation to eat any foods that he or she fancies. Food should be enjoyable and pleasurable, and this is especially important when you are very ill and suffering from cancer. As this person is also diabetic, foods that are very high in sugar should be limited so that sugar levels remain well controlled.
