During the consultation, we take and assess the medical history and the existing complaints and symptoms, we survey the eating habits,  so we prepare the so-called nutritional history. Together with the patient, we work out a diet plan, describe the main directions and rules, and discuss the variety of allowed, favourite foods and meals, and which of these can be incorporated into the diet of the given disease.

The dietitian needs the patient’s medical records, findings and test results in order to be able to recommend the accurate diet as properly as possible. The attending physician may also prescribe a special diet or a dietary intake in relation with the status of the disease (for example in the case of chronic kidney disease the doctor may prescribe a moderate protein, low phosphate and low potassium diet) and in this case the dietitian should adjust the diet accordingly and teach the patient how to accomplish this in the daily life. In most cases, we also ask our patients to keep a meal diary so that we can follow the changes in the patient’s condition as far as possible, and we can assess the characteristics of their nutrition at the very beginning of the therapy.

The meal diary has more importance than you might think. The more accurate the dietitian is, the more precisely he/she can have a good grip on the patient’s eating problems. This makes the more personalized, more accurate survey and analysis of the important details possible, on which the success of the given diet often stands or falls.
