  • FAQ 1: What are the costs of nutrition counseling for chronic diseases?
    Pay by results! 1. AT THE ASSESSMENT AND COUNSELING MEETING (scheduled after the free initial call) the general state of health and nutrition problems are thoroughly determined. Then concrete objectives are set, including the personalized way of changing eating behaviors and mentioning what supplements or procedures it involves. After the conseling, the patient receives a file (printed or in pdf format) with a detailed summary of everything discussed at the meeting, the concrete steps to follow, the treatment and additional schemes, specific procedures etc. which, applied correctly, can lead to stopping or remission of chronic diseases, through nutrition and diet accompanied by the changes in eating behavior and lifestyle proposed by the nutritionist. PRICE: 140-200 lei/hour (for RO), or 35-40 euros/hour (other EU countries), 30-35 GBP (for UK), the amount depending on the condition(s) addressed. TYPICAL COUNSELING DURATION: 120-180 min 2. CONCLUSION MEETING AT THE END OF THE PROGRAM: Depending on the degree of achievement of objectives established during the initial counseling, the patient pays after the completion of the program (one or two months, depending on the condition) an amount that results directly from the differences in analysis before and after schedule. The amount differs from case to case, depending on the number of objectives set and the degree of their achievement (see example below). EXAMPLE: The patient enters counseling with: - Total cholesterol of 280 mg/dL, - LDL 170, - Blood sugar of 210 - Weight of 95kg. Following the nutritional plan, the patient's analyzes after 35 days are as follows: - Total cholesterol of 175, - LDL 120, - Blood sugar 100 - The weight reaches 86 kg. DIET PRICE: -- initial-final cholesterol = 280 – 175 = 105 -- initial-final LDL = 170 – 120 = 50 -- initial-final blood glucose = 210 – 100 = 110 -- initial-final weight: 95 – 86 = 9 To obtain the amount in lei, the obtained numbers are added as such (except for the weight, where the number is multiplied by 10) as follows: 105 + 50 + 110 + (9x10) = 355. The number 355 constitutes exactly the cost to be paid at the end of the program, i.e. in the above example the patient will have payment after the 35 days the amount of 355 lei. Exception from this method of calculation are oncological diseases, where there are no quantifiable elements like those in the initial analyzes for the other conditions. Therefore the conclusion meeting will be charged in the same way as the initial counseling (rate/per hour). At the conclusion meeting, in addition to discussing long-term eating behavior, the counseling is supplemented with elements not initially discussed (what should be emphasized or avoided, what food supplements are still needed, elements of eating behavior and lifestyle, etc. .). NOTE: The cost of counseling does not include the price of any necessary dietary supplements or other specific treatments needed by the patient. These are established by mutual agreement during the counseling, depending on the analysis and medical history.
