Cachexia is a condition that can accompany cancer and includes symptoms of severe protein-calorie malnutrition, such as weight loss and wasting muscle, explains WebMD. Patients should use caution when considering alternative nutritional supplements, as these unproven treatments can cause harm. A patient undergoing cancer treatment should consult health care providers for comprehensive tests and screenings of diet, weight and body mass to determine the patient's individual nutrition supplement requirements.
