Aptitude Test


Aptitude Test for patients starting the diet treatment

The following patient's preliminary assessment test is the fruit of over ten years work carried out by a team made up of psychologists and nutritionists.
This program was used for the first time in 1994 and has been perfected in time, thanks to the daily use of the specialists.
The results of this test are very similar to the conclusions reached by the same therapists after having met the patients.
This program helps the nutritionist to undertake the optimal line of treatment for the patient, which is fundamental for the whole of the therapeutic course.
Based on the studies carried out and the experience accumulated over the years, we have come to recognize the opportunity of giving the patient, who is starting the diet treatment, a brief but fundamental introduction in which the importance of changing the eating habits and the close connection that exists between these and the weight and metabolic variation, are explained.
The aptitude test is an instrument, as has already been pointed out, of great importance, that cannot, however, take the place of the doctor's experience and opinion which derive from the relationship with the patient.
