Sessions and Tracks
Track 1: Nutrition and Food Science
Food science deals with the general properties of food like (physical and chemical properties). It also deals with the changes which takes place due to package, storage of the food. Where as nutrition describes the interaction of nutrients and other food substances. It also includes food intake, absorption, integration, metabolism, catabolism and excretion. So both nutrition and food science together will develop a well-organized track to maintain a healthy life.
- Food Technology
- Infection and deficiency disorder
- Organic and inorganic complexes in food
- Vitamin Deficiency Diseases
Track 2: Nutrition and Metabolism
The diet of an organism is what it consumes in its meal, which is basically determined by the availability and palatability of foods. For humans, a healthy diet includes preparation of food and other methods of packing which will preserve the nutrients from oxidation, heat or leaching, and this will reduces the risk of foodborne diseases. Metabolism is a key factor which will help to attain the conversion of food into energy to maintain cellular processes; building blocks for nucleic acids lipids, proteins, and some carbohydrates; and the elimination of nitrogenous wastes for the complete availability of nutrients to the body.
- Metabolic syndrome
- Nutrient–gene interaction
- Nutrition and Sports Sciences
Track 3: Paediatric & Geriatric Nutrition
The paediatric nutrition describes about the healthy diet which will maintain appropriate availability of the nutrients to infants. This will also avoid the high nutrition risk and low nutrition risk which may leads to several acute and chronic diseases like; Malnutrition, Iron-deficiency anaemia, Vitamin-deficiency anaemia, Nutritional deficiency anaemia. Geriatric Nutrition put on nutrition principles to delay effects like aging and disease related to it. With age many physical changes occur. Once the body reaches physiologic maturity, the rate of cell regeneration will be decreased compare to rate of degeneration which will affect the management of the psychosocial, physical commonly associated with growing old.
- GI disorders
- Dietary factors
Track 4: Obesity, Diabetes & Endocrinology
Due to the accumulation of excess amount fat in the body leads to increases in the risk of health problems. One of the major diseases related to obesity is diabetes. Diabetes is a group of diseases which results in too much sugar in the blood. The most common type of diabetes will affects the way the body processes blood sugar (glucose) and the pancreas produces little or no insulin. Gestational diabetes is a form of high blood glucose which primarily affects pregnant women. Untreated may leads to potential complications like heart disease, stroke, kidney damage, nerve damage. Endocrinology is a branch of science which web up the studies of the endocrine system and hormones secreted by it in the human body. Hormones are chemicals which affect the actions of various organ systems in the human body. Examples include insulin, growth hormone, and thyroid hormone.

Track 6: Bariatric Surgery
Weight loss is achieved by various methods in which bariatric surgery is the major and important one. This is attained by removing the portions of the stomach or by reducing the size of the stomach with the gastric bands. In some causes the small intestine is re-routed into a small stomach pouch. The bariatric surgery is recommended for obese people with more than 40 BIM (Body Mass Index) or at least 35 and also in the patients with serious coexisting medical condition such as diabetes.

- Cardiovascular disease
- Gall bladder disease
- Some cancers including colon, endometrial and breast cancer
- Type 2 diabetes (non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus)
Track 8: Junk Food and Obesity
The food which is pre-prepared or packaged that has very low nutritional value, high calories from fat or sugar, and less fibre, protein, minerals, vitamins in it. It can also refer to high protein food like meat which is prepared with saturated fat. Obesity is generally caused due to excess food intake and this is more prominent when a diet includes more calories in it. So avoiding junk food will reduce the risk of obesity.
- High calories
- Low minerals
- Added preservatives

WHY ABU DHABI, UAE:
There is a need to focus on the issue of obesity all the more genuinely in the UAE, as it has been found to greatly affect the wellbeing of people in Abu Dhabi, UAE than drinking or smoking. Women tend to have a higher body fat percentage than men for a given BMI. Obesity in UAE is twice the world rate. More than 2.1 billion people – close to 30 per cent of the global population – are overweight or obese.
38 % of married women in the UAE were overweight and 33 % were obese, in men 40.3 % were overweight, but only 15.8 % were obese. It was found that around 20 per cent of the population in UAE is suffering with obesity, which is more than the U.S. These results are quite dramatic and have a huge impact on the UAE, as obesity is a big health problem.
IMPORTANCE AND SCOPE:
People haven’t given the problem of being overweight and obese the same attention as other risks such as smoking, but it is a top health issue. Obesity isn’t just limited to one part of the world. The effects of overweight continued to increase and have never come to an end since many years. The chances of being food insecure are higher for women than men in every continent. The immense advancement of the technology, lack of physical activities and high fat content in the diet are the many factors for obesity. About 30% of the world population where affected with obesity. So there is a need to upturn the awareness about obesity and the ways and means which are available to avoid it with a proper nutritional diet should be spotlight.
RECENT RESEARCHES ON OBESITY WORLDWIDE:
Today worldwide children under 5 who are overweight (high weight-for-height): 40 million (5.9%), School-age children and adolescents who are overweight: 338 million, Adults who are obese: 672 million (13% or 1 in 8 adults).
More than 2.1 billion people close to 30 per cent of the global population today are overweight or obese, according to the World Health Organisation. Obesity is costing the world $2 trillion a year, nearly as expensive as armed conflict and smoking. This is a ticking time bomb. The recent studies predict that almost half of the world’s adult population could be overweight or obese by 2030.
