Out-patient Dietetic Services:

The nutritional needs of a normal person in his lifespan – from conception through infancy, childhood, adolescence, adulthood and old age – are modified according to the demands of growth and development at different stages of life. The needs of every person at any stage of life are to be modified and deviated from the normal when attacked by illness. Use of medication alone is not always sufficient to cure any health disorder unless there is proper nutritional management. Out-patient diet consultation can then be considered as a shield, which if effectively used, can protect a person from further attack of the disease and help restore normal health.

The dietitians of Asgar Ali Hospital have an out-patient diet clinic. They see patients and their families. They advise them on food that is good for them. The dieticians also advice what they should not eat and the quantity of food they should eat. Diet sheets are given to every patient. These will give examples with model meal plans and instructions on the diet. Patients with many different illnesses are counseled in the clinic. Illnesses covered include diabetes, kidney diseases, liver diseases, heart disease, obesity (being fat or over weight), cancer etc.
