Dietetics

In the course of providing dietary advice, we provide assistance not only with lifestyle changes and health maintenance, but also with the dietary treatment of established diseases.

In striving for the best results for our patients, we focus on individual problems; as we are all different, our counseling is completely personalized. In collaboration with our medical team we explore the causes of symptoms and complaints. We provide laboratory and other diagnostic tests for our patients. In collaboration with a doctor of internal medicine, cardiologist, endocrinologist, diabetologist, gastroenterologist and other specialists whenever necessary, we assure our patients the benefit of the most complex care possible.

We provide dietary advice and compile a diet that is optimized in line with the patient’s gender, age, weight, occupation and physical activity. The success of our work lies in achieving long-term change, which is why we consider it important to follow up at regular intervals.

During the consultations, we teach patients how to eat according to their disease or condition, from the right choice of ingredients to kitchen technology and decisions concerning portion sizes. Our goal is not a one-dimensional diet but to create a well-balanced diet and a livable lifestyle.
