Why work with a Registered Dietitian?
When you see an RD, the last thing you'll get is one-size-fits-all diet advice. After learning about your health history, favorite (and least favorite) foods, eating and exercise habits, an RD will help you set goals and prioritize.
Regular visits help you monitor your progress, stay accountable, and make lasting behavior changes.
Help managing chronic diseases
If you have diabetes, chronic kidney disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, etc. it can be hard to know what to eat. An RD can review your lab results with you, help you understand your condition, the nutrients that affect it, and how to meal plan to meet all of your needs. As a CDE, your RD can also help you with devices such as glucometers, insulin pens, and insulin pumps.
A weight loss program that works
Fad diets may sound like the quick ticket to weight loss, but they rarely work for very long. An RD will partner with you to develop a safe, effective weight loss plan that you can stick with for the long haul.
