Patients present with a wide range of specialized, restrictive and idiosyncratic dietary habits underlying their other health conditions. It is vital to understand how habitual diet impacts the body and hence disease processes. This session deconstructs the key aspects of inclusion/exclusion of major food groups and specific dietary components. Risks and benefits are explored with respect to a range of health challenges.
Recent advances in nutritional science have shed light on how food and specific dietary components can significantly extend ‘healthspan’. The latest developments in the field of anti-ageing will be explored, with practical guidelines for patient support.
