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 IDH+ Diffuse Glioma 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 IDH+ Diffuse Glioma 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 Swiss Chard and Beetroot are recommended when undergoing Procarbazine treatment for IDH+ Diffuse Glioma. But Galangal and Burdock are recommended when treatment changes to Lomustine. 

Similarly Docosahexaenoic Acid supplements are recommended with Procarbazine treatment for IDH+ Diffuse Glioma. But Vitamin B3 supplements are recommended when treatment changes to Lomustine. So always personalize your nutrition to your cancer gene mutations and other factors.



What is IDH+ Diffuse Glioma?

IDH+ Diffuse Glioma is one of the different subtypes of Diffuse Glioma. In this subtype of Diffuse Glioma, mutation of a gene called IDH1 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). IDH gene mutations are prevalent in cancer Diffuse Glioma. YYou can visit NIH for information on the prevalence of genetic mutations across cancers. (Reference: Steven N Hart et al, Hum Mutat,. 2020)

Diet for IDH+ Diffuse Glioma

Why Are Some Foods Recommended in the Diet for IDH+ Diffuse Glioma?

Foods and Supplements contain different active ingredients which manipulate different molecular pathways relevant to cancers such as IDH+ Diffuse Glioma. 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 IDH+ Diffuse Glioma, cancer pathways or processes like Inflammation, P53 Signaling, NFKB Signaling, Oncogenic Cancer Epigenetics, MYC Signaling, Cell Cycle, Energy Metabolism, DNA Repair, Cell Cycle Checkpoints, Endoplasmic Reticulum Stress, WNT Beta Catenin Signaling, Epithelial to Mesenchymal Transition, Heat Stress Response, PI3K-AKT-MTOR Signaling, Oxidative Stress, Apoptosis, Hypoxia, Microtubule Dynamics, MAPK Signaling and Glucocorticoid 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 IDH+ Diffuse Glioma 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.
