A dietician has been counseling patients at Prakash Netra Kendr since August this year, advising patients on their diet and nutritional intake to address chronic lifestyle diseases of diabetes, heart disease and obesity.
About NutritionVista: was founded on the basic premise that for most working adults access to healthy eating and weight management is not only time consuming but also unreliable.
To meet this unmet need, offers a convergence of both online and off-line tools built around the services of their well-trained dieticians who are certified by the Indian and/or American Dietetic Associations (IDA, ADA) respectively. A US based company now with an Indian presence, brings the latest in health assessments and innovative tools that will help consumers get better guidance, training and support on nutrition and related health issues.
