      Add dry milk powder cereals, soups, stews, sauces. I got through nose-mouth radiation with all of my teeth. Eggs- I was told to try for 3, tuna salad sandwiches-with a hard boiled egg and sweet pickle juice, peanut butter and crackers, whole cheese and crackers, cheese strings, grilled cheese sandwiches, cream soups, whole milk, cottage cheese, rare beef. whole milk milk shakes. My mouth got tender, and I had ulcers so I ate lots of cream soups- skip tomato because the acid burns your burns.-Ouch Cream of Wheat is excellent. IRON, PROTEIN, CALCIUM

      Is this a question regarding RAI? If so, limit any foods with iodized salt, seafood, etc. Google LID or low iodine diet and there are many resources on line that will help.

      Go to www.Thyca.org for a good overview of the Low Iodine Diet as well as additional information you need to get started and to get through your journey.

      You may also be able to find a thyroid cancer support group in your area. Support groups for thyroid cancer are growing. Thyca.org provides a list of support groups by state.
      You are not alone in your journey. Warmest regards. You can do this.

    Radiation (External radiation ): My 84 year old mother is receiving her last radiation treatment she has 2 more weeks to go, unfortunately she has secondary tumour in L4 and L5 of her spine and has not been given a good prognosis, would like to hear from anyone if they can suggest what food I should be giving my mum. My mum is amazing, so strong, doesn't want to be a burden, and says she is coping ok. Sometimes I wonder :(
