Many factors contribute to the weight of individuals, including diet, physical activity, genetics, medications, and illnesses. Each of these factors affects weight in different ways, but most often health professionals emphasize the importance of diet and physical activity above all other factors as a strategic behavioral intervention.
The Nutrition & Weight Management clinic in Al Ahsa Hospital is dedicated to promoting healthy weight through medical nutrition therapy (MNT). MNT manages a variety of diseases by combining nutrition diagnostic, therapy, and counseling services.
It goes beyond basic nutrition education. This care model helps our patients reach their goals through customized eating plans, behavioral support, and exercise recommendations.
Our clinical dietitians consider medical issues such as obesity, diabetes (type 1 and 2), hypertension, cardiovascular diseases, digestive disorders, chronic kidney disease, food allergies, pregnancy and lactation in addition to personal lifestyle and food preferences when developing the customized plans. All nutrition sessions teach patients to make healthier choices regarding their foods, portion sizes, and meals preparation.
In addition to our expert manpower, our body composition Analyzer- Inbody 720 provides our patients with a detailed report of their body composition and the distribution of fat, muscles, bone mass and water in their different body parts. This report will ensure that the most suitable diet is being given to our patients by analyzing the body composition during different intervals of following our diet plans and monitoring the occurring changes.
Follow-up appointments are scheduled to evaluate progress, provide support and additional counseling, or to modify the diet plan.
