Our dietitians specialize in providing medical nutrition therapy. Medical nutrition therapy is much like it sounds like. It’s the use of nutrition to manage certain medical conditions.
Here are some medical issues that can be helped with proper nutrition:
Type I Diabetes
Hypertension (High Blood Pressure)
Hyperlipidemia (High Cholesterol)
Please note that when you’re looking for a dietitian to help you with a medical condition, you’re sure that you are working with a registered dietitian versus a nutritionist. A nutritionist is a common term used to describe those who work with individuals to improve their relationship with food. However, just about anyone can call themselves a nutritionist. A registered dietitian has to go through rigorous and specialized training in the field of nutrition, they have to have supervised clinical hours, and they are held accountable to a larger professional organization. Rest assured, our dietitians are registered dietitians!
