Nutritionist & Dietitian
Specialist Nutritionist in Dubai
Nutrition and diet affect every part of our lives so it’s vital that appropriate care is given to patients who are experiencing nutrition-related issues.
Effective nutrition absorption can remedy a whole host of symptoms, such as fatigue, headaches and insomnia.
Issues we work with:
- Weight loss
- Post-pregnancy nutrition
- Childhood obesity
- Food intolerance
- Dietary support & education for diabetics
- Nutrition for PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome)
- Gastrointestinal & digestive disorders such as Crohns disease
- Celiac disease
- Therapeutic diets for chronic diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, kidney issues, liver problems, and hypertension
Our nutritionist will take into account your current lifestyle, eating habits, body composition and food preferences before devising a suitable plan, and is also able to offer body composition analysis. We can advise you on non-surgical re-shaping & slimming, innovative blood tests for weight management and customise individual diet plans to help you achieve your goals.
Advanced Medical Tests
If required, our nutritionist can also work with you and provide the following tests before advising a suitable nutrition plan:
- DNA diet test
- Hormonal test
- Micronutrient testing
- Food intolerance test
By taking swift action and assessing your nutritional needs and deficiencies, our specialist can help to identify dietary imbalances which could be impacting your health.
If you’re unable to absorb certain nutrients, you could experience additional medical problems. For patients with stomach or digestive conditions, nutritional issues can worsen their health. If you have undiagnosed Crohn’s disease, you may be experiencing worsening symptoms because of your diet.
With a nutritionist and a world-leading gastroenterology expert available at our clinic in Dubai, we are able to help identify any nutritional issues you may be experiencing and confirm whether or not they could be linked to any other illnesses or conditions.
By ensuring you get the right nutritional support, we can help to eradicate unwanted symptoms and boost your health.
Weight Loss Programs
If you’re suitable for the program, here’s what will happen. In just a short 20-minute appointment, you’ll swallow a small capsule. The capsule contains the Elipse balloon which we fill with liquid. The filled balloon sits in your stomach for 16 weeks making you feel full, reducing your appetite and allowing you to lose excess weight safely.
Our nutritionist, Sonia Salero, will work with you to provide dietary counselling and monitor your progress. During the six-month program, you will be taught how to establish a balanced and healthy diet and how to be satisfied with smaller portions. This is essential to maintain weight loss after the Elipse Device has been removed. Learn more
