Have Renal Cell cancer in lungs and kidney. Taking Votrient. What diet should I have?

I HAVE JUST STARTED TAKING VOTRIENT 800 MG DAILY. I HAVE RENAL CELL CANCER IN BOTH LUNGS AND IN MY TRANSPLANT KIDNEY . IS THERE A SPECIAL DIET I SHOULD BE ON? WILL A GLASS OF WINE BOTHER THE MEDICATION? I AM AWARE THAT IT IS BEST TO EAT SMALL MEALS AND EAT MORE OFTEN. I AM USED TO A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT MEDS AS TRANSPLANT WAS IN 2005 AND HAD NEPHRECTOMY OF LEFT NATIVE IN 2010.

Hi,
Very sorry to hear about your problems. According to you the disease is at stage IV. Stage IV renal cell carcinoma has not got good prognosis. At your present condition protein restricted diet is necessary. votrient is pazopanib, a targeted therapy used in metastatic renal cell carcinoma. Glass of wine should not be encouraged at this stage though it will not alter the metabolism of drug in a significant way. Considering your present medical condition, better to avoid wine. Take care.
