...Children are turning victims of obesity at an early age. Bangaloreans are developing high cholesterol, diabetes, high blood pressure etc because of these `lifestyle' diseases. Therefore it has become essential for one to be exposed to the reasons for the chronic diseases. So what do we do?" Even as Dr Sunil S Jhangiani asks this, he also offers solutions for it.The solutions are right at your fingertips. "You are what you eat," he adds.

What you eat

US-based Dr Jhangiani, MD, MBA, FACP, Founder, NutritionVista was in Bangalore recently to launch NutritionVista for the first time in India at the Telerad RxDx, the speciality clinic in Whitefield. NutritionVista is a convergence of offline and online offerings for your health on a personal level.  "We found Bangalore the right place to start, with global attention now being on Bangalore.

"The site offers a look into your personal diet and what's wrong with what you consume," he adds. With NutritionVista, the dietician will reply to your problems 24/7. The focus is on individual and corporate wellness.

Experts speak

And it's not all about weight loss.There is also access to experts in nutrition, health and wellness. There are nutrition and health assessment tools that help identify health risks, one-on-one consultation by qualified dietician, web based support, regular follow-up visits and information on health.

A Fellow of the American College of Physicians (FACP), Fellow of the American Gastroenterological Association (AGAF) as well as a member of the American College of Gastroenterology (ACG), and the American Society of Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (ASPEN), Dr Jhangiani incorporates nutrition counselling and weight management services into his practice.

Here in Bangalore, Jhangiani one of America's top physicians in nutrition and gastroenterology, is now bringing nutrition management services directly to consumers, healthcare providers and corporates at home.

Free of diseases

He describes better health as having higher level of functioning or the state of being free of diseases.
"I would describe better health as what you drink and eat, genetics and environment and access to health centres. You can do best with what you have in hand since you can't do much about the last two. So the first one is what you have to concentrate on. As far as Bangalore in concerned, besides the corporate world, NutritionVista is looking at the airline industry as well."

Doctors & leadership

"Bangalore is on top in when it comes to IT industry. I am optimistic that India can take the leadership in healthcare as well. But there needs to be lot of change. And the change should come from within the health industry. Healthcare needs to have accountability to enhance quality and outcome oriented performance. It is incumbent to try and bring the change. He is optimistic about the change. By the way, doctors need leadership training," he adds. For details call Telerad RxDx clinic on 41226799 or

Rajani People should realize that dietitians are not there only for specialized diet plans like tube feeding, diabetes, obesity etc but also for guiding a normal person to eat a balanced, nutritious and healthy meal. There fore the general public should utilize the services of web based dietitians and interact more with them either personally or through the web.
