Mrs. Meena (name changed) walked into the Jodhpur Center of a reputed stand-alone specialty institute that deals with all ailments related to obesity and gastrointestinal tract with her son for his regular medical checkup. It was at the hospital reception when she got identiﬁed by paramedical staﬀ as a suspected case of morbid obesity. Upon counselling, she acknowledged the problem but exhibited apprehension in getting it treated owing to little or no knowledge about it. Mrs. Meena with a BMI of 44.3 was suﬀering from acute type II diabetes, and was advised by the paramedic staﬀ to consult a nutritionist via Gloheal telemedicine platform.
Hesitant at ﬁrst, she was registered on the platform by the virtual clinic assistant, and an appointment was booked with the available nutritionist sitting in Ahmedabad. Mrs. Meena’s vitals including her height, weight, and current medical conditions were uploaded as part of her proﬁle using which the nutritionist could identify if the patient is suﬀering from severe obesity. Mrs. Meena was referred to a specialist doctor who helped her understand her problem, and explained the possible interventions to her using audio visual aids.
