- What changes can I make to help me gain weight?
If you have questions about diet and PERT, register now for a free evening webinar on Tuesday 29th June. Dietitian Rachel Caddy will be talking about the part they play in living well with pancreatic cancer, and there will be a Q&A so you can ask any questions you might have.
Rachel Caddy – dietitian
“I am a registered dietitian, specialising in working with people affected by pancreatic conditions, including pancreatic cancer. I work at the Liverpool University NHS Foundation Trust where I work closely with the fantastic pancreatic team, seeing patients and providing specialist dietetic input focussed on using food and nutrition to maintain or improve health wherever possible, with a strong focus on optimising quality of life.
I have a keen interest in the appropriate use of pancreatic enzyme replacement therapy (PERT) in people with pancreatic conditions, and am passionate about providing education on the correct use of PERT to both patients and healthcare professionals.
I have presented locally and nationally to both patients and healthcare professionals on my role within healthcare and how supporting patients nutritionally can impact on their health, outcomes, and quality of life.
I live with my husband and baby daughter, and spend much of my time baking sweet treats (and the rest of the time thinking about what to bake next!).”
