#2772 Vitamin Supplementation and a Personalized Diet in Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors: The DIVIT Study
Introduction: Patients with neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are at risk for vitamin deficiencies and poor nutritional status due to excessive serotonin production, diarrhea, previous gastrointestinal surgery, and/or treatment with somatostatin analogues (SSA). Little knowledge exists about vitamin deficiency and how patients should be supported for the deficiencies they develop during their long-lasting disease.

#1884 Towards Optimal Personalized Diet and Vitamin Supplementation in NET Patients; A Feasibility Study
Introduction: Patients with a neuroendocrine tumor (NET) often have gastro-intestinal complaints due to somatostatin analogue (SSA), tumor mass, secretion of neuroendocrine amines or treatment. This can lead to impaired absorption of critical food components such as vitamins. Serotonin producing NET patients may also have low plasma tryptophan.

#2078 Self-Reported Side Effects in Neuroendocrine Tumor (NET) Patients Prescribed Somatostatin Analogues – The Role for Specialist Dietitians and Nurses

Many health professionals and NET patient advocates have noticed that some of the side effects experienced by patients are more common than patient information literature suggests. It is therefore important to ask what and how severe experiences are, and compare to literature, to help raise awareness amongst NET health professionals.
