Careolife offers personal consultations on a one-to-one basis. In certain circumstances group consultations may be available.
Before your first appointment you will be asked to complete a detailed health, nutrition and lifestyle questionnaire, as well as a three day food diary. The information that you provide allows us to prepare for your consultation in advance.
Occasionally the information that you provide may mean that you are asked to seek medical advice to investigate any potential underlying disease prior to attending the consultation.
At the initial consultation, which typically lasts 30 minutes, a detailed picture of your history will be taken. This will include your health and family history, current health concerns, symptoms, diagnosis and treatment, as well as stress levels, psychological and emotional factors and dietary and exercise habits.
When it is appropriate, functional tests may be recommended. The results of these tests facilitate the development of a targeted and individualised nutritional programme and are invaluable tools for monitoring progress through the programme.
