Nutrition And Dietetics

We work to create a healthy lifestyle and enable healing through personalised nutrition-based diets


Our chief purpose here 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 patient management (assessment, diet and nutrition intervention planning, patient counseling and education). Inpatients and outpatients from various specialties - medicine, endocrinology, intensive care unit, cardiac, orthopedics, general surgery, gynaecology, pediatrics, nephrology, pulmonary, dermatology, physiotherapy, athletes, etc. are catered to. Case history and 24-hour diet recall are recorded to understand the patient’s clinical condition, dietary habits and attitudes, lifestyle. With scientific ways of disease management, a dietary strategy is planned, patients and relatives are counseled, a written diet plan is provided and regular follow up sessions are planned for further diet modification, progression and patient empowerment. Being a part of Food Committee, looks into the supervision of food service management - menu planning (enteral feeds, liquid diet, soft diet, therapeutic diets, special pediatric diets, renal diets), food quality control and food supply to the hospital wards.
