The digestive tract is said to be the “balancing center” of the body and finding that balance is vital in leading a healthful lifestyle. Digestive problems include but are not limited to reflux, peptic ulcers, constipation, diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, and celiacs disease. Dietitians can provide specialised meal plans to improving gut functioning and thus improving associated symptoms.
Kidney disease (aka Renal disease) is on the rise because of lifestyle and medical related factors. It is an overwhelming disease in which a specialised diet is required for long term management and maintaining current kidney function, and preventing affiliated complications. Dieticians consider lifestyle, personal preferences, renal function, treatment, medication, blood values and other relevant factors to provide personalised meal plans.
