Diet & Nutrition
At 7DMC, our department of Nutrition and Lifestyle clinic advises on the best weight management and nutrition programmes specifically designed to suit a patient’s individual nutritional, physical and lifestyle needs in Dubai and the UAE. Our expert team of dietitians helps patients decide on the best diet, nutrition and weight loss treatments and plans, and also evaluate which diets would best compliment needs and lifestyles in Dubai or across the UAE.
We have extensive experience in handling complicated, critical issues like weight management and nutrition concerns facing renal, gastrointestinal, cardiac and paediatric patients as well as those with diabetes. The Nutrition team provides comprehensive consultation services for patients of all ages using innovative diagnostic and evaluation techniques. Our staff take special interest in developing appropriate nutrition plans for patients of all ages who suffer from a variety of disorders. Eating a healthy diet does not mean consuming something random so as not to starve. It is necessary to pay attention to the intake of vitamins and minerals that the body needs. Otherwise, some diseases may occur.
A healthy diet program prepared by professional dieticians according to your body type and needs is called “diet”. Your ideal weight is determined by calculating the body mass index according to gender, age and weight criteria. Blood and urine tests are requested to get an idea of your overall health. It would not be right to create a self-nutritional program with hearsay information. The diet that is good for someone else can make you sick. Each diet is prepared by a professional dietitian according to one’s own body features. So you can take control of your weight in a healthy way.
Although the word diet could suggest slimming, it should not be forgotten that there are special nutritional programs for many different purposes.
Diet for Children
Healthy and balanced nutrition of children of growing age is important for their mental and physical development. It is quite inconvenient for children to provide the high energy they need from foods and beverages that are high in calories. It is important to follow a balanced diet and stay away from fast food and carbonated beverages in order to protect them from diseases such as hypercholesterolemia and type 2 diabetes.
Diet for Breastfeeding
The foods consumed during pregnancy are very important for the development of the baby. Avoiding overweight is essential for the health of the mother and baby. However, dieting for slimming is also not recommended during this period. In line with the needs that differ according to the period of pregnancy, it is useful to get support from the dietitian to complete the pregnancy with an appropriate nutrition program. In addition, the baby will benefit from breast milk at the maximum level thanks to the healthy and regular nutrition of the mother after birth, during breastfeeding. The mother’s diet is really important in order not to lose the vitamins and minerals in her body disproportionately with the milk she gives.
Diet for Diabetes
Regardless of Type 1 and Type 2, all diabetes patients should get expert help on what to feed on for their health. Nutrition training is vital for these patients.
Diet for Extremely Slim People
Sugar and carbohydrate intake, which is applied unconsciously to gain weight, may result in decreased muscle and bone density and organ damage. By increasing the number of meals, eating more frequently and balanced, not consuming liquids before and during meals, consuming dried fruits, adding additional foods such as walnuts, olives and cheese to the salad will support healthy weight gain.
