CLINICAL NUTRITION


NUTRITION AND DIET COUNSELLING FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY

Each of us are individuals, no two people are alike. We eat different foods, exercise at different rates and times, and consume different amounts of vitamins and minerals. We all require the same basic foods such as proteins, carbohydrates and fats and vitamins, minerals and enzymes; yet, it is determining the right amount of each substance for each individual that helps him or her fend off disease. Proper nutrition is an essential aspect of diagnosis and treatment. Nutrient-related disorders can be cured once nutritional balance is achieved.

Disease can result when the balance among all of the foods and nutrients we take or avoid is disrupted. Health can be restored once you begin to take in a proper essential balance of foods and nutrients - vitamins and minerals.

Vegetarian diets have a higher ratio of unsaturated to saturated fats. Saturated fats are known to increase the risk of type II diabetes, but this is not one of the major influences- BMI is a much more sensitive predictor of diabetes and at least one study has shown that the types of fat consumed made no difference to diabetes risk for men with high BMI. Dietary Fat and Meat Intake in Relation to Risk of Type 2 Diabetes in Men. Other influences include fibre intake and the quantity of refined versus whole grain carbohydrates.

What is thought to cause the increase in diabetes risk from consuming meats is the effect of saturated fats on the cell membranes. Every cell in your body is surrounded by a membrane and these are made from the fatty acids which fats are made from, so all the fats we eat are broken down into the constituent fatty acids and these are put to work in our cells. The different polyunsaturated fatty acids (omega 3, 6 and 9) have different conformations and this affects how important molecules are taken in and out of the cell. In terms of diabetes risk, this is thought to influence the way insulin is released and taken up by the cells around the body.
