Chemotherapy Support

January 15, 2015

Recent research shows that exercise can help reduce some of the fatigue associated with chemotherapy! Scientists followed a group of women aged 27 to 69 who were in the first few stages of chemotherapy. Participants were put on an accelerometer to measure the calories burned during a controlled workout. The women also kept a diary to record levels of fatigue. Researchers found that as the amount of exercise increased the level of fatigue decreased. The reduced fatigue levels didn't carry over into non-exercise days. Working out when you least feel like it can be the most important time!
