Dietetic Counseling
Once all test results are out, the patient will come for an evaluation visit where the cardiologist will explain all results to the patient and depending on the initial examination and test results can ask for a Dietetic/Smoking Cessation counseling at WHHC (or give an initial treatment or refer her for treatment outside the center for more advanced cases).

Dietetic Service: provides patients with diets to promote cardiovascular health in order to achieve and maintain a normal blood pressure, a balanced lipid profile and good diabetic control. This service includes: dietetic assessment, body composition test (muscle mass, body fat distribution, total body water percentage…), administration of an individualized diet, counseling and teaching, behavioral therapies, support to patients and families, regular sessions to assess compliance and prevent relapse.
