Dietetics is the branch of medicine that deals with processes related to nutrition, food composition and proper nutrition for therapeutic purposes.
One of the purposes of this discipline is the formulation of a diet and lifestyle based on clinical and instrumental canons that aims to achieve or maintain an adequate state of nutrition.
Nutrition therefore becomes an instrument of prevention and therapy.
Diagnosis and therapy
After careful and adequate anamnesis, objective and instrumental examination, the patients examined will carry out a nutritional rehabilitation process aimed at defining the existing problem for the resolution of food conflicts.
The activity in the field of Clinical Nutrition ranges from clinical, laboratory and instrumental nutritional evaluation and examines patients suffering from:
- Malnutrition (cancer patients in radio and chemotherapy treatment)
- Post-surgical nutritional problems
- Metabolic syndrome
- Hepatic steatosis
- Osteoarticular pathologies
- Gastroenterological pathologies
- Nutritional issues due to menopause
- Arterial Hypertension
Overweight and obesity
Particular attention is paid to issues related to overweight and obesity.
The secondary failure of slimming diets pushes us to follow alternative therapeutic paths adapted to individual needs, personal habits and aimed at promoting the nutritional culture of change.
In this way, slimming becomes not the objective but the natural consequence of a slow, gradual and progressive transformative process.
