What should be in the diet of a post-angioplasty surgery patient who has poor appetite?

Age: 16 - 29
Cardiology Vascular Surgery Diet & Nutrition
DOCTOR’S ANSWER (1)

Surgical nutrition is something that is very
important, and this covers both the pre and post-surgical periods. Without
adequate nutrition, muscle wasting, immune dysfunction, and impaired
recovery can occur.

In general, encouraging adequate intake of nutrients, with a focus on
ensuring adequate protein intake is important. Other than just diet, early
mobilization is also important to facilitate protein synthesis and muscle
function.
If appetite is an issue, it may be advisable to work with a dietitian to
devise an oral diet, and work on preventing caloric and protein deficits.

Taking into account your patient's past medical history is also important
when devising a suitable diet - for instance, in a post-angioplasty
patient, there will likely be concomitant cardiovascular risk factors such
as raised cholesterol, high blood pressure or diabetes, and these will
also need to be taken into account when devising a diet.

I hope this helps!

Regards,
Dr Grace
