Highlights

No two cancers are the same and neither should your nutrition be. When diagnosed with cancer or at risk of cancer – one immediate question is “What Should I Eat Differently Starting Now?” and “Which Supplements Should I Take and Avoid”. The answer is “It Depends”. It depends on which genetic mutations your tests identified. It depends on which cancer, which ongoing treatments and supplements. It depends on your age, weight, height, lifestyle, allergies and habits. The answer to “What Should I Eat Differently” and “Which Supplements Should I Take and Avoid” for CTNNB1+ Bladder Urothelial Carcinoma also requires understanding of how the food and supplements included in your diet manipulate the molecular pathways which are relevant for cancer and interactions with your treatment.

Internet search to find answers will never be personalized to your cancer type such as CTNNB1+ Bladder Urothelial Carcinoma and lifestyle conditions. Cancers are driven by biochemical pathways and therefore the answers to nutrition questions have to be based on molecular science irrespective of whether one understands it or not.  

For example foods like Bamboo and Beetroot are recommended when undergoing Cisplatin treatment for CTNNB1+ Bladder Urothelial Carcinoma. But Persimmon and Adzuki Bean are recommended when treatment changes to Gemcitabine. 

Similarly Diosmin supplements are recommended with Cisplatin treatment for CTNNB1+ Bladder Urothelial Carcinoma. But Caffeine supplements are recommended when treatment changes to Gemcitabine. So always personalize your nutrition to your cancer gene mutations and other factors.



What is CTNNB1+ Bladder Urothelial Carcinoma?

CTNNB1+ Bladder Urothelial Carcinoma is one of the different subtypes of Bladder Urothelial Carcinoma. In this subtype of Bladder Urothelial Carcinoma, mutation of a gene called CTNNB1, also known as β-catenin, is detected. The defects or aberrations or mutations in this gene can either drive cancer (tumor promoters) or remove brakes on cancer progression (tumor suppressors).  CTNNB1 gene mutations are prevalent in the cancer- Bladder Urothelial Carcinoma. You can visit NIH for information on the prevalence of genetic mutations across cancers. (Reference: Steven N Hart et al, Hum Mutat,. 2020)

Diet for CTNNB1+ Bladder Urothelial Carcinoma

Why Are Some Foods Recommended in the Diet for CTNNB1+ Bladder Urothelial Carcinoma?

Foods and Supplements contain different active ingredients which manipulate different molecular pathways relevant to cancers such as CTNNB1+ Bladder Urothelial Carcinoma. Genetic mutations and cancer conditions cause specific molecular pathways to become disrupted. Hence, those foods and supplements are recommended which do not disrupt those molecular pathways further and instead reverse the disruption. For CTNNB1+ Bladder Urothelial Carcinoma, cancer pathways and processes like NFKB Signaling, MYC Signaling, Cell Cycle, Hypoxia, Vitamin D Signaling, Angiogenesis, Lipid Metabolism, Adherens junction, DNA Repair, Chemokine Signaling, Endoplasmic Reticulum Stress, WNT Beta catenin Signaling, Focal Adhesion, Replication Stress, PI3K-AKT-MTOR Signaling, TGFB Signaling, Notch Signaling, DCC Attractive Signaling, MAPK Signaling, Growth Factor Signaling, P53 Signaling, Netrin Signaling, Nucleotide metabolism, RUNX Signaling, Cell Survival, Amino Acid Metabolism, Epithelial to Mesenchymal Transition, Oxidative Stress, JAK-STAT Signaling, Cytokine Signaling and Hedgehog Signaling get disrupted. Choose those foods and supplements which contain active ingredients which cancel the molecular pathways disruption. Those supplements which interact with the treatments and disrupt the cancer molecular pathways further should be avoided.

The nutrition/diet for cancer such as CTNNB1+ Bladder Urothelial Carcinoma depends on the type of cancer, treatments and supplements being taken (if any), age, gender, BMI, lifestyle and any genetic information available.

Foods to Eat After Cancer Diagnosis!

No two cancers are the same. Go beyond the common nutrition guidelines for everyone and make personalized decisions about food and supplements with confidence.


Cancer patients often have to deal with different chemotherapy side effects which affect their quality of life and look out for alternative therapies for cancer. Taking the right nutrition and supplements based on scientific considerations (avoiding guesswork and random selection) is the best natural remedy for cancer and treatment related side-effects.
