Top reasons to visit a dietitian/nutritionist (RDN):

  • You have been diagnosed with pre-diabetes, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, or high blood pressure. Seeing a registered dietitian nutritionist  (RDN) may help lower your numbers, strengthen your heart, and prevent heart attack and stroke.
     

  • You have digestive problems and/or food allergies. Our digestive tract responds to everything we put in our mouth. And often, this response is inflammatory, meaning our tract does not accept whatever we ate. The reason for this varies from person to person, and a RDN can help you determine the foods you're reacting to and develop a menu plan to ensure you're receiving
    adequate nutrients while avoiding the foods you react to.

     

  • You need to lose or gain weight. We all know that there are hundreds of fad diets promising fast, drastic weight loss in as little as a few weeks. A RDN has been trained in healthy, safe, effective, lasting weight loss strategies to ensure that you can reach your healthy weight goal for good!
     

  • You want to maintain or improve your sports/fitness performance. Nutrition is what fuels performance--sports and otherwise. A RDN can determine how many calories you burn during workouts and rest, and then develop menu plans that address your active nutrient needs to ensure optimal performance and recovery.
     

  • You are pregnant or are trying to become pregnant. RDNs know what nutrients women need during different life cycles and can help develop a plan to ensure you and your baby receive the nutrients you need for maternal health and strong fetal development.
     

  • You are simply getting older, and your nutrient needs are changing. As we age, nutrient absorption in our digestive tract decreases, and our need for certain nutrients goes up. Seeing a RDN can help you address your changing needs and replenish your nutrient stores for better energy and health as you age.
     

  • You are diagnosed with a chronic disease. Many people don't give nutrition enough credit for its power in supporting the body during chronic illnesses. These illnesses can include heart disease, multiple sclerosis, cancer, respiratory diseases, etc. There are a plethora of drugs available for the management of disease, but what is often overlooked is nutrition's role in helping to make these diseases more manageable, and perhaps slow down their progression.
