What is dietary advice?
Diet is an important part of our lives – we can enjoy delicious food on a daily basis and ensure that our bodies receive all the key nutrients. The value of a balanced diet is gaining more and more recognition in society, including for people who wish to lose weight and do so healthily. In addition, many medical conditions can be positively influenced with dietary changes, improving quality of life.
Nutrition experts deal with all issues relating to nutrition, health, medical conditions and individual circumstances. They look at your personal situation and expectations, keeping these in mind when compiling a plan of realistic adjustments to help you continue to enjoy food while achieving sustainable changes to your diet, so you can reach your goals.
In addition to your face-to-face consultations on our premises, you can also use the Oviva app to stay in contact with your advisor, wherever you are, making it quick and easy to communicate.The app also has several functions to help you change the way you eat for good: it features a photo food diary, exercise diary, weight chart and a record of symptoms and monitored parameters.
Dietary advice can assist in treating the following conditions:
- Weight problems/obesity
- Metabolic conditions such as diabetes, high blood lipids, rheumatism, gout
- Cardiovascular conditions such as high blood pressure
- Gastrointestinal conditions, e.g. irritable bowel syndrome, lactose intolerance and coeliac disease
- Kidney disease
- Food allergies and intolerances
- Malnutrition or deficiencies, e.g. vitamin or mineral deficiencies or deficiencies during cancer
It can also make sense to adapt diet to age for children, youth and the elderly, and to make adjustments for specific life circumstances such as pregnancy or performance sport.
