Weight management programme & follow up counseling:
Diet plays an important role in the prognosis of the disease and patients should strictly follow the guidelines of diet therapy. A team approach (physician, dietician, nurse and patient) is encouraged for success in diet therapy. In Sooriya Hospital, the Diet Department was started in the year of 2004 to meet the nutritional requirement of the patients according to their therapeutic conditions. The dietary department is under the supervision of a qualified dietician. She gives diet education to the patients, develops menu patterns, evaluate client acceptance, monitors food service system and makes recommendations for a conformance level that provides nutritionally adequate quality food.

Apart from the food service the diet clinic includes weight management programme, as an out patient service helps in wider use of dietary counseling and serves to extend and clarify diet instructions and have follow ups.
