Nutrition plays a great role in our daily life. Food or liquids affect our body and health because each food or liquid contains particular nutrition which is very necessary for our physical and mental growth. A particular level of any particular nutrition is essential for our body. So we should know what food we have to take, how much and what type of nutrition contains a particular food.
Whenever we take any food or nourishing liquids, our body digests and absorbs the simple but essential minerals, vitamins, fats, proteins, carbohydrates, fats and water from these food or nourishing liquids and converts it into the bloodstream and energy that help our body to grow and keep it healthy.
The nutritional value is more important for any individual’s health. Food or liquids whenever we take it affect our body and health as well both. So it is very important that we should be more aware of the foods or liquids that we take in our daily life. A large number of diseases occur only due to the wrong diet. Some certain diets may itself cause some disease or alter the course of a known disorder such as diabetes, or heart or kidney disease.

Overweight and obesity are defined as abnormal or excessive fat accumulation that presents a risk to health. A body mass index (BMI) over 25 is considered overweight, and over 30 is obese.
If you are living overweight or obese, our dietitians can support you to build the knowledge, confidence, and skills to achieve your health and weight management goals.
Diabetes is a chronic (long-lasting) health condition that affects how your body turns food into energy. Your body breaks down most of the food you eat into sugar (glucose) and releases it into your bloodstream. When your blood sugar goes up, it signals your pancreas to release insulin.
Diabetes dietitians can help you manage your diabetes, for example, to improve your blood glucose levels. They can help you to achieve a healthy diet and lifestyle in the best way for you and your diabetes. Managing your diabetes is very important to lower the risk of complications later
High blood pressure, also called hypertension, is blood pressure that is higher than normal. Your blood pressure changes throughout the day based on your activities. Having blood pressure measures consistently above normal may result in a diagnosis of high blood pressure.
Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) is an eating plan that can help prevent or treat high blood pressure. It includes vegetables, fruit, whole grains, low-fat dairy products, nuts, seeds, legumes, and a lower level of salt. DASH may be as effective as medicine at keeping blood pressure levels in check and for that, you need a Dietitian to design a DASH diet for you.
Celiac disease, sometimes called celiac sprue or gluten-sensitive enteropathy, is an immune reaction to eating gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye. If you have celiac disease, eating gluten triggers an immune response in your small intestine. It is very important to meet with a dietitian skilled in celiac disease after you have been diagnosed with celiac disease. The dietitian will review the information you provide, assess your nutritional status, educate you on the gluten free diet, and provide you with resources to manage your gluten-free lifestyle.
PCOS is a very common hormone problem for women of childbearing age. Women with PCOS may not ovulate, have high levels of androgens, and have many small cysts on the ovaries. PCOS can cause missed or irregular menstrual periods, excess hair growth, acne, infertility, and weight gain.
Dietitians organize food and nutrition care plans to improve your eating habits or achieve healthrelated goals such as losing weight or regulating blood sugar levels. They are a great partner to have by your side when looking at how to best manage your PCOS symptoms.
