Nutritionist Visit in Rome
Contrary to what you may have heard, nutritionists can help with more than weight loss plans. If you are struggling with issues such as nutrient deficiencies, weight gain, digestive issues, targeted diets, maternal nutrition, or other concerns, a consultation with the nutritionist may be right for you. During the visit, you have the opportunity to share your medical history, alimentary concerns and goals, as well as ask questions to get a better idea of the kinds of changes you can implement in your life to improve your overall condition. Lastly, the nutritionist may suggest some lab testing for your doctor to prescribe to get a better picture of what is going on or supplements to bring your body into balance.
How does it work?
If you are a first-time patient, we will complete a short registration. Following this, the doctor will call you back and ask you about the reason for your visit. During your personalized nutritional consultation, you can discuss:
