During this appointment we gather and discuss your personal and family history (very important to understanding your requirements). The Health Questionairre which you have previously filled in will be clarified with you.
Analysis of morning Urine sample (collected the morning of the consultation). We ascertain kidney function, glucose anomalies, bodily acidity and heavy metal toxicity.
