I am a Registered dietitian with over 20 years of experience in the field of dietetics and nutrition. I received my Bachelor of Science in Dietetics from the University of the Western Cape in 2001. I was fortunate enough to work at 2 of the biggest academic hospitals in Cape Town from 2001 to 2016. It was here where I developed a passion for oncology and gained extensive experience in various areas of nutrition.
During my time in oncology, I was responsible for the academic training of dietetics students. I have worked with patients across the spectrum of cancer care, from those newly diagnosed and undergoing treatment to those in survivorship.
My clinical experience has given me a deep understanding of the unique challenges that cancer patients face in maintaining their nutritional status, including the effects of cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation. My approach to patient care is centered around providing individualized nutrition counselling that takes into account a patient’s medical history, treatment plan, and personal preferences. I work collaboratively with my patients to help them establish realistic nutrition goals that can be achieved within the context of their cancer journey.
I believe that good nutrition is essential for maintaining strength, energy, and a healthy immune system, which can help support cancer treatment outcomes and quality of life. I am passionate about empowering my patients to take an active role in their care by making informed decisions about their nutrition and overall health.
My passion for nutrition was further driven when I was diagnosed with PCOS, my personal experience on the struggles with weight gain and insulin resistance made me research the topic of women’s health in-depth. This is where I found so many misconceptions, inaccurate information on diet and nutrition and the management there of, finding my way through this maze of information helped me to manage my patients with the understanding and empathy that was dearly lacking ,as management of PCOS entailed more than a matter of “just losing weight”.
I constantly keep updated and am continuously learning about nutrition; besides my degree I also have a diploma in advance sports nutrition from Barca Universitas and a Fodmap certificate from the University of Monash
Outside of work, Nasreen enjoys spending time with her family, traveling and staying active.
