Stage Of Examination Performed By A Nutritionist?
Good afternoon, doctor. Hello. Introduce me Reza, age 18, has problems with growth and development that height and weight are not ideal according to the BMI / Brocha formula or compared to the height of people my age. Today I intend to have it checked by a nutrition specialist, but I am nervous if I cannot answer the question for certain, which will be carried out by a further medical examination, which I may not be able to do now, since it is now a test towards PTN. The question is, how do dr. XX, Sp. Gz solve the problem that’s happening to me? (including further medical examinations). Thank you and always be healthy.
Reza does not need to be nervous or worried if he wants to go to a nutrition specialist, because the question asked by him is to understand Rezam's medical history, what risks Reza might have, and daily lifestyle patterns. That way the doctor can understand the medical characteristics of the patient so they can do a basic health check to get more information.
The information obtained from the question and answer session and the basic health examination will be taken into consideration by doctors to determine the need for supplementary examinations (additional), if it turns out that the information obtained is sufficient then medical or treatment efforts can be considered from the data obtained. However, if the information held is still doubtful or is felt to be lacking, then a supporting examination will be considered what the patient needs to undergo, before considering medical or treatment efforts that are appropriate to the patient's needs. That is why not all patients undergo the same examination even though they both consult the same nutritionist and even with similar symptoms / complaints, this returns to the characteristics of the patient himself.
So how a nutritionist can deal with problems that a patient experiences is by understanding the characteristics of the patient himself, namely by digging information through question and answer sessions and also health checks. I give this parable like a picture stacking game or what is known as a puzzle. To be able to know what the actual picture is in the puzzle toy, we must be able to arrange the pieces of the picture. The pieces are like information obtained from a question and answer session (age, history of illness, daily habits, history of illness in family members, etc.), basic health checks (weight, height, body shape, blood pressure, breath frequency , etc.) and other tests (blood lab, cholesterol level, blood sugar level, etc.). So that if the various pieces of the picture are compiled can provide a clear and complete picture. So that's why doctors need to collect various kinds of information in order to understand the picture of the patient's condition, so the doctor can plan what medical efforts or treatments are appropriate for the patient's condition.
Reza need not be afraid if in the question and answer session later can not answer some of the doctor's questions, because this is not a test and the doctor will certainly try to explain the question in the simplest possible way so that it can be understood by patients so that patients can answer what is asked by doctor.
So do not be afraid to consult a doctor directly yes, hopefully useful
