Nutrition For Dialysis Patients
Our Dieticians provide specialised diet plans for kidney patients undergoing dialysis, created based on medical inputs from the consulting Nephrologist.
Our Dieticians offer customised diet plans to optimise the nutrition status of patients undergoing treatment for cancer/ chemotherapy. The diet plans also include strategies for minimising the after-effects of radiation on the body.
Our Dieticians provide optimal, guideline-based nutritional support to children undergoing treatment in the PICU, including post-transplant cases. They assess the child’s previous nutritional quotient, degree of malnutrition, current health status and nutritional requirement; identify those at greater nutritional risk and initiate enteral (EN) and parenteral (PN) nutrition (EN being the preferred mode for children with a functioning gastro intestinal tract). An evidence-based nutritional guideline has been set to promote optimal nutritional support in PICUs.
Critical Care Nutrition
Our Dieticians work with medical teams from all specialities to provide specialised, optimal nutritional support to critically ill/injured patients including patients with life-threatening conditions including trauma, burns, severe infections, acute respiratory disorders and those recovering after major surgeries, including post-transplant cases. They assess and identify patients with greater nutritional risks and recommend a customised plan and mode to provide the required nutrition (oral/ tube/ intravenous), based on his or her current health condition.
A good diet helps heal faster. That’s why our Dieticians provide customised therapeutic nutritional advice and diet strategies for patients, which help them regain their health and recover faster. The diet is planned keeping in mind what the patient can and cannot in relation to the medical problem, and how much essential nutrients he or she requires on a daily basis to maintain good health and prevent/ manage diseases. The diet plan is created after taking inputs from the treating doctors.
Hospital Dietary Services
Apart from taking care of the nutritional wellbeing of our patients, the department also offers expert advice to the food and beverages wing of the hospital to ensure that the food served here is of the highest quality standards.
