Talk to Your Doctor Before Taking Supplements

It may be tempting to take supplements to get the nutrients you need. But some herbal products and dietary supplements have been shown to interfere with cancer treatments. Even antioxidants like vitamin E may be risky in excess. Talk to your doctor about any supplements you take or plan to take. It’s best to meet with a dietitian if you're worried about falling short on any essential nutrients.
