Transformative Health Journey of Neha and Vikram: A Comprehensive Nutrition Approach by Deepika Chalasani, the best dietitian in India

CASE STUDY & SUCCESS STORIES


Name: Neha & Vikram

Age: 30 & 36 years

Location: Hyderabad


Case Study:

Neha, a 30-year-old woman, and Vikram, a 36-year-old man, sought Deepika Chalasani's expertise after experiencing two unsuccessful IVF treatments. They aimed to improve their health and nutrition before attempting another IVF cycle. Both believed they were relatively healthy, which made the IVF failures even more confusing.


Analysis by the best pregnancy nutritionist in Hyderabad, Telangana, Deepika Chalasani:

Upon consultation, Deepika, the best nutritionist in Hyderabad, Telangana, recommended comprehensive blood work to understand their underlying health issues. The results revealed several critical health concerns for both Neha and Vikram. Vikram’s blood work showed high cholesterol levels, elevated HbA1c, indicating poorly controlled diabetes, and abnormal thyroid function with high TSH and T3 levels. Additionally, he had high uric acid levels, elevated liver function parameters (SGOT, SGPT, GGT), and a deficiency in vitamin D. His kidney function was also compromised, as indicated by elevated creatinine levels and albumin leakage in his urine. Vikram was also found to be mildly anaemic and suffering from protein malnutrition.

Neha's health issues were equally concerning. She had low levels of vitamin B12 and D, poor iron levels, and low haemoglobin, and was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD). Her blood work showed elevated Hs-CRP levels, an inflammation marker, and her urine analysis indicated the presence of blood, suggesting hematuria or a possible infection. Neha was also overweight, which compounded her health issues and contributed to her difficulty in conceiving.


Approach by the best diabetes nutritionist in Hyderabad, Telangana, India, Deepika Chalasani:

Deepika advised them to consult their doctors and start taking the necessary medications to support their diet and improve their overall health. Vikram's tailored nutrition plan focused on controlling his carbohydrate and sugar intake while also managing his renal parameters by reducing sodium and potassium intake. Neha, who had recently undergone surgery for a fissure and could not tolerate non-vegetarian food, was provided with easy-to-digest vegetarian options to ensure she met her nutrient needs.


After analysing their dietary intake, it was discovered that their diet was high in carbohydrates, low in protein and fibre, and with minimal physical activity. This led to an imbalance in calorie intake and expenditure, likely contributing to their weight gain. Since both consumed the same meals, a customised plan was created that was easy to manage and follow. This plan was designed to meet their specific dietary needs and health conditions, promoting better health and well-being for both Vikram and Neha.


To address their needs, specific items were included in their diet. For Neha, a super seed date mix was added to her breakfast to manage her low iron levels, while for Vikram, we focused on giving him a balanced breakfast with complex carbs, fibre, protein and healthy fats as the first meal of the day predicts the rest of day. We included complex carbohydrates like green roti, a signature product from Shvasa, hand-pounded rice, quinoa, and millets, along with vegetables in innovative forms to meet their dietary fibre and micronutrient requirements. A combination of good fats, dietary fibre, and probiotics was introduced to improve their overall well-being. 


Additionally, healthy snack options such as murukku, nachos, and date seed cubes, a signature Shvasa product, were provided to prevent hunger pangs. Structured guidelines and plans for food selection when eating out and travelling were also offered to support their adherence to the program. They were also educated on the importance of hydration. For optimal digestion, they were recommended to drink a glass of water every hour and maintain a gap of 3.5-4 hours between meals. Continuous monitoring and guidance were provided to ensure their progress.



Results:

Within six months, Neha and Vikram experienced remarkable improvements in their health. Neha's weight decreased from 61 kg to 52.7 kg, and her vitamin D levels rose from 15.58 ng/ml to 35 ng/ml, B12 levels increased from 159 ng/ml to 337 ng/ml, and iron levels improved from 49 ug/dl to 78 ug/dl. She felt more energetic, experienced fewer body pains, and had less severe menstrual cramps.


Vikram's weight was reduced from 66 kg to 61 kg. His lipid profile showed significant improvement, with total cholesterol dropping from 227 mg/dl to 126 mg/dl, triglycerides from 211 mg/dl to 98 mg/dl, and LDL levels from 164 mg/dl to 69 mg/dl. His HbA1c improved from 6.6% to 5.9%, and his uric acid levels decreased from 9.1 mg/dl to 6.3 mg/dl. His kidney function improved, as indicated by the cessation of albumin leakage in his urine, and his liver function parameters were normalised. His vitamin D levels significantly increased, contributing to overall well-being and an improved thyroid profile. He was super happy with the results, mainly because his uric acids are now within the ranges.


Together, Neha and Vikram prioritised physical activity and noticed a decrease in cravings, increased energy, and increased confidence, enabling them to make wiser and healthier food choices. After a few weeks, they conceived successfully.
