Nutrition & Dietetics
Healthy Nutrition, Health Life
Our Department of Dietetics & Nutrition is run by a team of expert nutritionists and counselors who support all departments and are committed to helping communities both within the hospital and outside to establish a healthy understanding of the link between nutrition and ailments. Right from the daily OPD, the institute offers nutritional education and guidance to outpatients in the Obesity Clinic, Bariatric Diet Clinic, Oncology Diet Clinic, and Antenatal Diet Clinic. The Institute also offers lectures and training on nutrition, eating and meal planning for professionals, corporate, communities and schools. Experts at BHMIC Centre of Dietetics & Nutrition counsel patients on the need to adhere to a therapeutic diet prescribed by the doctors, based on their clinical conditions. Each patient is provided personalized attention by the team of dedicated dieticians who monitor progress and diets, on the basis of the following three pillars:
- Combination of palatability with proper balance of nutrients in food is essential for healthy life
- Moderation rather than elimination or addition is the guiding principle.
- Malnutrition (over or under Nutrition) predisposes the body to many risk factors.
