Consultations with a dietician

Consulting a dietician is recommended for people who for health reasons (overweight, obesity, high cholesterol, hypertension, ischemic heart disease, myocardial infarction, diabetes, stroke, gastrointestinal disease, kidney disease, osteoporosis and others) should eat in a proper manner. Changes in diet in consultation with a dietician are also recommended for those who want to prevent the occurrence of many of the diseases above. Proper nutrition is also extremely important in childhood, as well as during pregnancy and lactation in women. Diet should be adjusted individually to the patient’s needs, taking into account the current state of health.

Treatment consists in determining the nutritional needs of the patient with regard to his/her nutritional status, health status, concomitant diseases and medications used. On the first visit a patient is asked to bring the results of recent blood tests and hospital discharge, if he was hospitalized. A patient should also have the names of drugs and their dosage written down. In some cases he may need to update the medical tests or to extend them. During the first meeting, a dietician collects dietary information. Then he prepares dietary recommendations. During subsequent visits, he explains the rules of their application. The frequency of visits is determined individually with the patient, depending on the dietary operations taken.
