The nutritional consultation team of the Zuger Kantonsspital supports the implementation of long-term and sustainable dietary changes for the healthy, the sick as well as for athletes. The objective is to individually advise patients on all matters of nutrition and on setting their own personal goals. Our nutritional consultation team works in close cooperation with the doctors, the nursing team and other medical professionals.
Diets can sometimes become unbalanced. This may be caused by illness, surgery or lifestyle changes. There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all diet. That is why our nutrition experts attach great importance to individual advice and support.
In modern nutritional therapy and/or nutritional advice, we also give particular consideration to the social circumstances of our outpatients and inpatients, to allow them to enjoy the best possible quality of life.
We offer athletes sports-specific nutritional consultations. During these consultations, we address topics such as optimal nutrition before and during competition, the optimisation of performance or the ideal recovery.
Nutritional status has a major impact on health, length of hospital stay, recovery and quality of life. During your hospital stay, we will care for you if you suffer from specific nutritional issues, such as malnutrition and nutritional deficiencies, as a result of surgery or allergies, chewing and/or swallowing problems.
If required, support can be continued on an outpatient basis.
