Who I am

My name is Diana Panizza Mathis and I am a dietitian nutritionist graduated in Zurich (Higher Specialised School) with a special focus on healthy & preventive nutrition and sports nutrition, a subject I have always been passionate about!

Education & Experience

After graduating, I worked at hospitals and clinics, where I valued interdisciplinary work, associations and private companies. I also collaborated with the school for dieticians as an examiner. After spending more than 10 years in the North part of Switzerland, I returned to Ticino in 2010 where I currently work as a freelance dietician and at a medical centre.

Why hire a dietician

Almost every day we can read or listen to news on the subject of nutrition, a very broad field. If the information we receive is contradictory, we feel insecure and do not know how to act.

This is why it is essential to turn to a professional with a recognised diploma, who has undergone four years of training, is based on scientific evidence and can accompany the patient/client on a nutritional path. In addition, the dietician regularly attends continuing education courses that enable him/her to be up-to-date and provide quality advice.

Approach and results

I am a great believer in an individual therapeutic approach, because it makes it possible to follow the official guidelines by adapting them to the individual person; with his or her preferences, principles and rhythm of life. In this way, the patient/client acquires new eating habits that they can maintain in the long term.

Learn how to nourish yourself in everyday life as well as in various situations in life; e.g. at parties, on a training day or during a competition. Patient/client and therapist work together with the aim of achieving goals, without neglecting balance, well-being and enjoyment of food.


My services are recognised by all basic health insurance funds if at least one of the criteria listed on the dietary prescription (see attachement) is met, such as obesity, diabetes or a food intolerance.
I receive patients with a dietary prescription signed by their doctor on Thursdays at the Centro medico dello Sport, Via Cantonale 38, 6928 Manno. One prescription entitles you to six consultations.

Instead, I receive private clients at the Università della Svizzera italiana, Campus Est, Via La Santa 1, 6962 Viganello (appointment to be arranged) and offer the following rates:

  • first session: 130 CHF (1h)
  • from the second session: 100 CHF (50 minutes)

For those who wish to have several sessions, the following packages are available.
