Live yogurt during chemo?

10 Sep 2017 12:51

I have been advised to avoid live yogurt during chemo but what is NON-live yogurt? I have bog standard "natural" yogurt from Aldi which does not say "live" or "active." Is this safe to consume? I'd like to continue to eat yogurt if I can find out what kinds are safe to eat.

Hello, 

I saw your post and just wanted to stop by to welcome you to the forum and pass on our cancer nurses telephone number as I think they will be in the best position to answer your question. You can chat to them for free on 0808 800 4040, Monday - Friday between 9a.m - 5p.m so do give them a call when you can as they will be able to point you in the right direction Happy

Kind regards,
