Healthy Nutrition and Diet Counseling Center

Nutrition; It is the use of nutrients for growth, maintenance of life and protection of health. In society, nutrition is generally seen as a concept to be considered in case of a disease. However, studies have shown that improving individual diet and health practices reduces preventable diseases, disabilities and premature deaths. Nutritional deficiency and imbalance are direct causes of some diseases and indirect causes of others. Therefore, as CIU-SAYAM Nutrition and Diet Department, we provide services on nutrition and diet in comprehensive diseases, individual diet programs and nutrition education.

Today, in the prevention of many diseases, during and after the disease, the nutritional status of the patient should be determined and followed with a personalized, adequate, and balanced nutrition program. In SAYAM, nutrition and diet services are provided to raise awareness of healthy nutrition in society and to support the healing process of patients.
