ABOUT DIETSCIENCE


At DietScience, we base our plans on scientific principles with up to date research. However, each plan is compiled with our experience and the individual patient and practicality in mind; the ultimate end goal is always the health and wellness of the patient! We aim to motivate our patients not to start diets with expiration dates but to focus on a healthy lifestyle and meal plan that will last forever. The science of dietetics guides our principles and nutritional planning but the art of dietetics is what makes our plans sustainable, exciting and achievable for our patients.

Consultations include a patient assessment followed by education and a calculated meal plan. All consultations are within medical aid rates.

“The doctor of the future will no longer treat the human frame with drugs, but will rather cure and prevent disease with nutrition.”

Thomas Edison

IN HOSPITAL CONSULTATIONS

DietScience offers in-hospital consultations for post operative meal plans, ensuring that the patient has a smooth, successful recovery and minimal post-operative complications. Appropriate nutritional intake is also ensured in ICU patients who cannot feed themselves, and as such require medical nutrition through Enteral and Parenteral means.

STEPDOWN FACILITIES

We also work in stepdown and physical rehabilitation facilities. Here we ensure that patients recovering from strokes and other debilitating conditions receive the necessary, appropriate nutrition.

HOME BASED CONSULTATIONS

Home based consultations are done in severe cases, where patients require education on enteral or parenteral feeding.
