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 NTRK+ Thyroid Cancer 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 NTRK+ Thyroid Cancer 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 Cabbage and Onion are recommended when undergoing Entrectinib treatment for NTRK+ Thyroid Cancer. But Coffee and Basil are recommended when treatment changes to Larotrectinib. 

Similarly D-limonene supplements are recommended with Entrectinib treatment for NTRK+ Thyroid Cancer. But Vitamin E supplements are recommended when treatment changes to Larotrectinib. So always personalize your nutrition to your cancer gene mutations and other factors.



What is NTRK+ Thyroid Cancer?

NTRK+ Thyroid Cancer is one of the different subtypes of Thyroid Cancer. In this subtype of Thyroid Cancer, mutations of genes called NTRK1/3 are detected. The defects or aberrations or mutations in these genes can either drive cancer (tumor promoters) or remove brakes on cancer progression (tumor suppressors).  NTRK1/3 gene mutations are prevalent in cancer Thyroid Cancer.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 NTRK+ Thyroid Cancer

Foods and Supplements contain different active ingredients which manipulate different molecular pathways relevant to cancers such as NTRK+ Thyroid Cancer. 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 NTRK+ Thyroid Cancer, cancer pathways or processes like Inflammation, MYC Signaling, Heat Stress Response, Inositol Phosphate Signaling, RAS-RAF Signaling, Extracellular Matrix Remodelling, PI3K-AKT-MTOR Signaling, Hypoxia, Microtubule Dynamics, MAPK Signaling, Growth Factor 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 NTRK+ Thyroid Cancer depends on the type of cancer, treatments and supplements being taken (if any), age, gender, BMI, lifestyle and any genetic information available.
