Nutrition & Dietetics

We work to enhance the patient’s healing through a tailor-made nutrition-based diet plan.

Overview

Its chief purpose is to provide disease-specific, nutritionally-balanced diet to the patients and to promote optimal nutritional status and wellness. Evidence-based diet guidelines are used for the patient management (assessment, diet and nutrition intervention planning, patient counselling and education).

Inpatients and outpatients from various specialties - medicine endocrinology, intensive care unit, cardiac, orthopaedics, general surgery, gynaecology, paediatrics, nephrology, pulmonary, dermatology, physiotherapy, athletes are regularly catered to. Case history and 24-hour diet recall are recorded to understand patient’s clinical condition, dietary habits and attitudes, lifestyle etc. Considering scientific ways of disease management, a dietary strategy is planned, following which patients and relatives are counselled and a written diet plan is provided. Regular follow-up sessions are planned for further diet modification, progression and patient empowerment. Also, a part of Food Committee supervises food service management including menu planning (enteral feeds, liquid diet, soft diet, therapeutic diets, special paediatric diets, renal diets), food quality control and food supply to the wards.
