Nutrition is the use of nutrients for growth, maintenance of life and protection of health. In general, nutrition is seen as a concept considered when people have a disease. However, according to some studies, correcting individual diet and health practices reduces the risk of preventable diseases, disabilities and premature deaths. Nutritional deficiency and imbalance are direct and indirect causes of some diseases. For this reason, the Near East University Hospital Department of Nutrition and Dietetics provides services on nutrition and diet for all kinds of diseases, individual diet programs and nutrition trainings.
Nutrition and Diet Services
In the Department of Nutrition and Dietetics, we prepare personalized nutrition plans, teach about healthy nutrition and change the nutritional behaviour of people with any health problems. For this purpose, the nutritional habits of individuals are reviewed in detail at the first examination. Nutritional counselling is determined before the measurement of body fat, muscle, water ratio and the distribution of fat in the body; then, a ‘personalized nutritional treatment’ is planned according to the age, height, gender, physical activity and blood test results and followed up regularly.
