Nutritionist

Nutritionist
Dietetics is a medical science that studies the principles of rational human nutrition, including for various diseases. The principles and approaches to dietary nutrition remain unchanged, as they are dictated by human nature.

However, modern life with its variety of refined foods with a lack of physical activity poses new challenges for dietarians. Thanks to the latest scientific achievements and modern technical means, it has become possible to more accurately diagnose nutritional disorders and take into account the personal characteristics of patients.

A dietarian can help in the treatment of many diseases, as well as give recommendations for prevention. It is known that lifestyle changes, a balanced diet and regular physical activity can prevent:
  1. About 80% of cases of diabetes and cardiovascular pathologies.
  2. About 40% of oncological diseases.
Proper selection of the diet can significantly improve the results of therapy.

What diseases do dietarians deal with

Contrary to popular belief, a dietarian is approached not only for weight loss. This specialist will assist in the treatment of:
  • metabolic disorders – gout, obesity (BMI > 25) and diabetes mellitus, especially type 2;
  • epilepsy;
  • Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases;
  • diseases and disorders related to digestion (constipation, diarrhea);
  • urolithiasis, pyelonephritis, glomerulonephritis;
  • cirrhosis of the liver;
  • tuberculosis;
  • SARS and other infections;
  • chronic heart failure.
The recommendations of a dietarians will be useful for people who are recovering after:
  • heart attacks;
  • strokes;
  • removal of the gallbladder;
  • traumatic brain injury.
It is recommended to consult a specialist of this profile if the weight increases by more than 5 kg in 2 months or more than 10 kg in a year. An indication is also an increased blood sugar level, a regular rise in blood pressure.

A dietarian will also help with a shortage of body weight, which cannot be increased in any way, to choose the optimal diet during pregnancy or sports.

It is advisable to contact a dietarian for almost any disease. The doctor will assess what the needs of the body are at the moment, adjusted for existing disorders, and adjust the diet so as to strengthen the most vulnerable links in metabolic processes.

What kind of research is carried out at the medical center Polyclinic.ae

To make a diagnosis and develop an individual diet, the following can be carried out:
  • bioimpedance measurement to assess protein, water and lipid metabolism in the body;
  • blood tests – general and biochemistry, general urine analysis;
  • coprogram for gastrointestinal diseases and food toxicoinfection;
  • bacteriological analysis of feces (coproculture);
  • ultrasound of the abdominal cavity;
  • intragastric Ph-metry with determination of gastric juice acidity.
At the initial detection of diseases, the patient is referred to the appropriate specialist for examination. The dietarian, in turn, makes a personal nutrition plan to achieve maximum effectiveness of therapy with a minimum of adverse reactions.

Instrumental and laboratory studies are necessary to distinguish the conditions caused by overeating and malnutrition from the problems caused by the disease. Therefore, treatment with a dietarian is not always the main one and is aimed primarily at eliminating the consequences of the existing pathology.

The dietarian does not prescribe medications that by themselves can provoke a number of violations. His tool is deep knowledge in the field of physiology and metabolism, allowing to determine the most appropriate diet for a particular person, taking into account his state of health.

Patients can come to the appointment either independently or by referral from other specialists – cardiologist, gastroenterologist, endocrinologist, etc. If the diagnosis is already known, it remains for the dietarian to prescribe an appropriate diet and describe in detail its features, indicating the qualitative and quantitative composition.

Although the clinic is quite new, it has all the amenities you need to feel comfortable. It was a pleasant and informative visit to the gynecologist for my regular checkup. I appointed Lina Rengifo as my UAE physician from that point on due to her experience in such matters.
