Step one for a cancer patient is to attempt and get a molecular profile of the tumor. A map, to know the tumor. Whenever possible, this would include both genomics and proteomics testing. Also, screen and treat for sleep apnea or upper airway resistance to assure the body’s immune system stays strong.
Insulin carries glucose to cells. After you eat food, the pancreas will send insulin into the blood to grab glucose and escort the glucose into cells. If you don’t eat food, then there’s no insulin kick. And when you don’t eat for long periods, blood sugar can get too low. This is when the cortisol (adrenalin!) hormone steps in—to balance blood sugar.
