How this doctor can help:

We could all occasionally benefit from the guidance of a nutritionist— it’s crucial to maintain a healthy diet even when we’re well. Proper nutrition can often boost our general health and bring many benefits.

However, a nutritionist becomes an invaluable ally for patients with chronic conditions where a specific diet becomes an integral part of their lives. Nutritionists are incredibly helpful for children undergoing hemodialysis or with kidney transplants and other nephrological diseases, children with hematological conditions, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, gluten enteropathy, and those with obesity.

Professional philosophy and approach to patient care:

”Teaching children about healthy eating, encouraging them to enjoy foods they might not favor, advising parents on how they can support their children’s dietary needs, understanding children’s reluctance and desires— all these tasks require patience, dedication, and exceptional communication skills. This is what sets our colleague, Živković, apart.
She believes that healthy eating doesn’t mean completely giving up our favorite treats, either. The key is learning to control how often we indulge in them. Eating healthily doesn’t mean bland food or feeling hungry; it’s about feeling satisfied with nutritious food that’s also good for our health.”
