Deputy Manager,Dietetics Department, BSH.

The Department of Dietetics at Bangladesh Specialized Hospital consists of a dedicated team of dietitians who provide counselling and nutritional intervention essential to our body for our health and general well-being. 

The dietary requirements of the human body change as one moves through different life and/ or medical stages. The dietitians translate scientific evidenced-based research on nutrition, health and disease and apply this information to the nutritional needs of patients. This is done by assessing dietary intake and planning appropriate medical nutrition therapy to suit and improve the clinical and health outcome of individuals.

The dietitians also work together with other healthcare professionals in multi-disciplinary teams. 

Inpatient / Outpatient

Dietitians are involved in patient care in both inpatient and outpatient settings. A patient should be referred to a dietitian by a doctor when identified for a nutritional assessment.  

Upon referral, the dietitian then does an initial nutritional assessment and develops a nutrition care plan based on the diagnosed nutrition issues. Dietary changes and other factors will be reviewed, and further nutrition recommendations will be provided if needed.

Food Services

Dietitians are also involved in the development of therapeutic diets and work with the Food Services Department to ensure that food served to patients are nutritious and suitable for different medical conditions.
