The lifestyle and diet have an impact on the condition of the skin, hair and nails. Improper diet can make the skin gray and make hair and nails brittle and dry. This is due to the fact that the appearance of the skin, nails and hair depends on the supply of certain substances to the body in the right proportions, including, for example, vitamins, zinc, iron, selenium, sulfur, silicon and fatty acids. Therefore, a dietary consultation may be an extremely important element in the process of eliminating appearance problems. A nutritional interview is carried out during the dietary consultation. The subject of the analysis is the patient’s eating habits, the daily schedule, past diseases and conditions in the family, current ailments, medications, previous diets, approach to nutrition, physical activity, the results of the tests and the general lifestyle, including the presence of stressful situations. Based on the knowledge gained about the patient, the doctor assesses the influence of the diet and lifestyle on the condition, appearance and well-being of the patient. He suggests possible changes in eating habits or physical activity. During the visit, I discuss the test results provided earlier, and if necessary, I suggest further diagnostics. In some cases, the doctor asks for additional laboratory tests or contact with a doctor of another specialization.
