Increased lipid utilization in weight losing and weight stable cancer patients with normal body weight
There are no significant differences in lipid clearance rates between weight losing and weight stable cancer patients, according to research designed to establish a metabolic basis for adequate nutrition of cancer patients. Cancer patients with normal body weight have a raised lipid oxidation rate. This is more marked among those losing weight. It is suggested that fat intake should be increased in cancer patients to meet their metabolic requirements.
