Nutrition expert Dr. med. Astrid von Wichert

Besides conservative and surgical therapy, nutrition therapy is an important pillar in the treatment of lipedema. A healthy and balanced diet increases well-being and vitality.

Obesity often accompanies lipedema and a correct diagnosis, and appropriate therapy, with an individual weight reduction program is of great benefit in order to favourably influence the underlying disease.

In the private practice for nutritional medicine of Dr. med. Astrid von Wichert (specialist for internal medicine, cardiology and nutritional medicine) in Munich you can expect an individually tailored consultation, diagnostics and therapy. From the nutrition consultation with detailed initial examination and nutritional therapy services to long-term care with movement therapy coaching, we accompany you professionally and competently at the highest level.
