Viktigheten av optimal ernæringsbehandling og klinisk veiledning hos barn med ADHD
Så mange som 75% av barn med ADHD opplever positive resultater fra medisinsk behandling. Men opptil 20 % får den medisinske behandlingen avbrutt på grunn av appetitt- og vekttap.*
En behandlingstilnærming som inkluderer ernæringsbehandling kan bidra til å forhindre uønsket seponering av medisiner, og forbedre den generelle livskvaliteten for både barnet og familien.
Nutricia inviterer til et webinar med internasjonale eksperter med formål om å gi en dypere forståelse for de ernæringsmessige utfordringene og viktigheten av ernæringsbehandling for barn med ADHD
Webinaret er rettet mot helsepersonell som jobber med barn med ADHD i klinisk praksis
