Dietetics and clinical nutrition

The clinical dietetics and nutrition outpatient clinic deals not only with a wide range of weight and nutrition issues for patients with illnesses but also with the increasingly common food intolerances and allergies. Our experts aim to suggest to the patient a healthy lifestyle that includes not only proper nutrition but also, as far as possible, regular physical activity. Our diet significantly impacts our body’s ability to respond to external and internal factors.

The most commonly treated conditions in the clinical dietetics and nutrition outpatient clinic include obesity, overweight, malnutrition, diabetes, high blood pressure, dyslipidemia, osteoporosis, and chronic kidney disease. However, many patients with conditions affecting various systems, such as respiratory (sleep apnea), gastrointestinal (irritable bowel syndrome, gluten and lactose intolerances, etc.), also seek treatment. Patients with neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s often benefit from valuable dietary and nutritional advice as well.

The purpose of a dietetic and nutritional consultation is to provide personalized advice on a healthy diet for overall well-being, promote the philosophy of “eating well,” and combat the widespread misinformation in the field of nutrition. A healthy and balanced diet is the first step towards a peaceful and long life.

Eating Disorders (EDs) such as anorexia, bulimia nervosa, and binge-eating disorder (BED) require a multidisciplinary approach, with a crucial role played by the dietitian-nutritionist. Additionally, our specialists also oversee the nutrition of oncological or surgical patients, as malnutrition regimens can exacerbate their conditions. Increasingly, pregnant women and those embracing vegan or vegetarian philosophies also turn to our specialists for overall dietary guidance.
