ASSESSMENT OF PERFORMANCE STATUS
Assessment of physical performance status using a specific protocol.
In case of inadequate oral intake from foods, we provide instructions for energy and protein enrichment of foods and beverages or we suggest other types of nutritional support, e.g. oral nutritional supplements (considering concurrent goals, e.g. prevention/management of hyperphospatemia in patients with end stage renal disease).
Written and oral counseling to address every nutrition related problem.
Provision of personalized diet based on patient’s preferences and needs.
