The Department of Dietetics at Apex Hospital aims at facilitating the nutritional health and well-being of the patients to enhance the clinical management of patient’s routine dietary requirements. Our dietitians provide necessary nutritional and dietary support to the patients by evaluating, monitoring, and improving the nutritional status of the patients, based on the instructions of the doctors of the concerned department. Thus, diet is planned to keep in mind the food that is restricted and allowed as per the current medical condition. The consultation from the dietitian assists in maintaining the optimum nutrition requirements of the patients and providing the highest level of nutrition care for living a healthy lifestyle.
The department provides comprehensive nutrition and dietary services to both OPD and IPD patients. Furthermore, our nutritionists and dietitians coordinate with other departments such as Cardiology, Nephrology, Oncology, Pediatrics, Neurology, Cardiovascular disease, Critical care, Pediatrics, and Gastroenterology. With a healthy diet, the patient recovers faster, and therefore, nutrition therapy plays a crucial role in post-operative recovery and diet-related complications. According to our nutritionist, having healthy food habits such as intake of a balanced diet and nutrition-rich food can have a positive impact and assist in resorting to a healthy lifestyle.
