Dietitians and Nutritionists in Dubai

Keeping active and eating a well-balanced diet, we consider, is the key to good health. Nutritionists, in general, provide evidence-based information and advice on the effects of diet and nutrition on human health and well-being. They have the knowledge and expertise to give evidence-based information.

HMS Al Garhoud Hospital Dubai collaborates with the best nutritionists and dietitians in Dubai to provide dietary advice and nutritional evaluations.

Excellent nutrition management allows your body to cope with the ongoing disease, retain good health, have much more energy for work, and deal with stress more effectively. Eating the appropriate meals reduces your risks of having diabetes, hypertension, renal disease, heart disease, and stroke.

Vitamins, Minerals, Protein, lipids/Fats, Water, and Carbohydrates are the six essential nutrients.

The human body cannot create everything it requires to function. To sustain maximum health, people must ingest six important elements through food sources. Micronutrients are vitamins and minerals. Micronutrients are nutrients that are required in minute amounts by the body. Although the body only requires minute quantities of these, a lack can be also harmful to one's health. Macronutrients are nutrients that a person requires in greater quantities. Water, Carbohydrates, protein, and lipids/fats are examples of macronutrients.

Six Essential Nutrients


Vitamins are micronutrients that have a variety of health advantages, including the following:

  • Increasing the immune system's effectiveness.
  • Assisting the brain and nerve system in their functions.
  • Assisting the brain and nerve system in their functions.
  • Assisting the body's metabolization of proteins and carbohydrates.
  • Assisting the body's metabolization of proteins and carbohydrates.
  • Keeping your skin in good shape and healthy.
  • Promoting blood health.
  • Teeth and bones are strengthened.

Nutritionists classify 13 key vitamins into two categories: soluble in fat and soluble in water.

  • Vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin E, and vitamin K are fat-soluble vitamins.
  • Vitamin B-1 (thiamine), vitamin B-12 (cyanocobalamin), vitamin B-6, vitamin B-2 (riboflavin), and Vitamin B-5 (pantothenic acid), vitamin B-3 (niacin); vitamin B-9 (pantothenic acid) (folate, folic acid). Biotin (vitamin B-7) with vitamin C are all water-soluble vitamins

A person may typically obtain all of the vitamins they require through a diet rich in vegetables, fruits, and lean proteins. Those who consume fewer fruits and vegetables and those who have digestive problems, on the other hand, may need to take a vitamin supplement to avoid or reduce a deficiency.

The second category of micronutrients is minerals. Minerals are divided into two types: major and trace minerals. For maximum health, the body requires a balance of minerals in both categories.

Minerals that are important include:

Magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, sulfur, sodium, potassium, and chloride.

The body benefits from major minerals in the following ways:

  • Water levels should be balanced.
  • Keep your skin, hair, and nails in good shape and health.
  • Boost your bone health.

Trace minerals are:

  • Iron is one of the trace minerals.
  • selenium, zinc. manganese, chromium, copper, iodine, fluoride, molybdenum

Trace minerals aid in the following:

Bone Strengthening, Reducing tooth decay, assisting in blood clotting, assisting in the transport of oxygen, assisting in the immune system, assisting in the maintenance of appropriate blood pressure.


Protein is a macronutrient that is required by every cell in the body to operate properly.

Proteins perform a wide range of tasks, including:

Assuring muscle, bone, hair, and skin growth and development generating antibodies, hormones, and other necessary compounds acting as a fuel source for tissues and cells when required


Fats  Certain fats, on the other hand, are required for optimal health.

Fats offer energy to the body and aid in a variety of tasks. It is, nevertheless, critical to ingest healthy fats such as monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats while limiting or avoiding saturated and trans fats.

Healthy fats aid in the following functions:

cell development
coagulation of the blood, formation of new cells, reduction of the risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes, muscle movement balance blood sugar regulation, brain function, mineral and vitamin absorption, hormone production, and immunological function


Carbohydrates are required by the body. They are sugars or starches that provide energy to all of the body's cells and tissues.

Carbohydrates are classified into two types: simple and complicated. Simple carbs, such as white bread, spaghetti, and rice, should be avoided. Complex carbs, on the other hand, are required by the body to sustain the following:

  • For the proper functioning of the immune system.
  • For the proper functioning of the brain
  • For the proper functioning of the nervous system.
  • For the proper functioning of the energy to perform tasks.
  • For the proper functioning of the digestive system


Water is most likely the most crucial nutrient that a person requires. A human can only survive for a few days without water. To sustain optimum health, water is essential to replace fluid losses that occur continuously in our bodies from skin evaporation, respiration, urine, and stool.

Useful info and health tips

Do not skip meals!
When you skip meals your metabolism slows down, and you are not burning calories as you should. Your body thinks that you are starving so when you eat again, your body stores away more than usual resulting in more fat

Healthy diets contain a variety of foods
In general, we should include a range of nutritious foods and eat

  • Plenty of bread and cereals (particularly wholegrain), fruit, vegetables, and legumes (such as chickpeas, lentils, and red kidney beans)
  • low-salt foods, and use salt sparingly
  • Small amounts of foods that contain added sugars
  • Reduced-fat milk and other dairy products.
  • It is also important to drink an adequate amount of water.
