Dexeus Mujer now looks after your diet too
True to our vocation of caring for your health and offering you comprehensive care, Dexeus Mujer has launched its Nutrition Unit, designed to help you improve your habits, follow a balanced diet, and lose weight if you need to.
Diet and nutrition are increasingly important today, in a society with growing concerns over a healthy, balanced diet, not only to improve our appearance but also to prevent diseases such as obesity, which has become commonplace in Spain over the past few years.
Who is it addressed to
The Nutrition Unit is designed to meet the needs of any patient, whatever the reason for your visit. You can arrange a visit:
If you want to lose weight.
If you want to improve your habits and follow a healthy, balanced diet.
If you are pregnant and have gestational diabetes, or are overweight or obese.
If you are going to start assisted reproductive treatment.
If you are going to start cancer treatment.
Women go through many stages in their lives: adolescence, pregnancy, menopause, etc. All of these bring about physical and physiological changes that may not be favoured or easy to balance out with certain diets.
Read the interview with our nutrition specialist (in Spanish) to find out the secret to healthy eating, why diets don't work and why we are so irresistibly attracted to chocolate.
Much more than a visit about diet
Besides answering your questions about diet, our Nutrition Unit offers you the chance to undergo a study to assess your percentage of body fat in order to make a precise diagnosis and offer you tailored advice based on your needs.
Using the data that we obtain from your first visit, we provide you with a custom report that we use to create a diet tailored to your specific conditions and needs (age, weight, height, sex, sport, habits, preferences, etc.) and we programme subsequent controls for your plan.
On future visits, the diet is adapted according to the results obtained.
The visit can also be complemented by auriculotherapy. This is a technique related to acupuncture that is used to help to control anxiety and hunger.
Why choose us
Our staff are community nutrition and dietetics specialists who always work in coordination with our medical team.
We accompany our patients through the different stages of their lives and provide comprehensive gynaecology, pregnancy and assisted reproduction care tailored to the needs of the individual.
We have a team of experts whose primary concern is patient well-being and ensuring excellence in our services.
Visits take place at the same centre, so you will not need to travel to other sites.
Maribel, aged 31, Barcelona
"I was a bit overweight and I’d always wanted to look after my diet. When I came for my gynaecological check-up, I had a visit with Xus at the Nutrition Unit and lost 2 kilos after a month on a personalised diet. More importantly though, I have gained energy and can keep up at my exercise classes in the gym with heaps more stamina. I feel amazing and I've also learned to follow a healthier diet by eliminating empty calories with no benefits."
