AbstractEating dysfunction is a well-recognized consequence of orophagic tract cancers, but also occurs with other cancers. There is a relative absence of data assessing the impact of eating function on QoL in cancer populations other than those with disease of the oro-phagic tract. We assessed longitudinal changes in eating function and quality of life (QoL), and examined whether eating function predicted QoL over time in a sample of Chinese patients with breast, lung, liver, and nasopharyngeal cancers. Overall, 1 079 patients with breast, liver, lung, or nasopharyngeal carcinoma were assessed during their first outpatient visit (baseline) and at two follow-up interviews (FU1 and FU2). Three dimensions of eating function, including ability, appetite, and enjoyment, were assessed using three 11-point self-rated items. QoL was measured by the Chinese version of the Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy-General Scale (FACT-G (Ch)). Linear mixed effects (LME) models evaluated mean differences on eating function and QoL scores across interviews and across cancer groups, and the effects of eating function on QoL. After adjustment for socio-demographic and medical variables, pain and depression, eating function significantly predicted patient overall (standardized βs ranged from 0.091 to 0.163, ps<0.05), physical (standardized βs ranged from 0.101 to 0.200, ps<0.05), and functional (standardized βs ranged from 0.120 to 0.162, ps<0.05) aspects of QoL scores over time. Eating dysfunction significantly impacts QoL in cancer populations other than those with orophagic disease. Change of eating function appears to be a common problem in cancer patients regardless of cancer site. © 2008 Taylor & Francis.
