What is Special Nutrition for Clinical Procedures?

Specialized nutrition for clinical procedures is a special diet that a person needs due to a specific clinical procedure or illness. Such diets are designed to help the body's processing or healing process and to prevent possible complications.

A high-protein and low-fat diet may be recommended before or after surgery. This type of diet is necessary as the body needs more protein and less fat to recover from surgery. Similarly, if a person is undergoing chemotherapy or radiation therapy, low-fat, light and easily digestible foods may be recommended to prevent side effects such as nausea and vomiting. People with chronic diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, digestive system diseases, etc., should develop a nutrition plan specific to their clinical procedures. It is therefore important to work with a nutritionist or dietitian to prepare and implement such diets.

How Should Nutrition Be Before Clinical Procedures?

Nutrition before clinical procedures is very important to prevent complications that may occur during or after the patient's procedure and to accelerate the healing process. It also prepares the patient for the clinical procedure. The right nutrition plan in the pre-procedure period can contribute to the patient's health.

The pre-procedure nutrition plan should be determined depending on the age, health status, height, weight and gender of the patient. In general, it is necessary not to take any food into the body for 6-8 hours before surgical procedures. In this way, the stomach emptying process is completed.

In the last 24 hours before the clinical procedure, heavy fatty foods, spicy foods, carbonated foods and drinks should be avoided. Instead, light, easily digestible, protein and fiber-rich foods such as white meat, yogurt and vegetables can be preferred. Again, attention should be paid to fluid intake in order to keep the body hydrated during this period. You can consume liquid foods such as water, fruit juice, herbal tea, soup, liquid jelly as recommended by the doctor.

Foods containing protein, carbohydrates and healthy fats should be preferred in pre-procedure meals. For example, foods such as chicken, fish, red meat, vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and dairy products can be consumed. The aim of pre-procedure nutrition is to accelerate the healing process and prevent complications after the procedure. Therefore, it is recommended that pre-procedure meals should be light and easy to digest. Therefore, it is useful not to excessively consume fibrous foods.

Before some procedures, your doctor may give you instructions about nutrition and prohibit you from eating and drinking. Therefore, it is important to follow the doctor's instructions for you.
