There is a lot of nutrition information out there, which is why Meridian Health offers one-on-one nutrition counseling to help you separate fact from fiction.
A registered dietician is a health care professional who provides reliable, objective nutrition information. They separate facts from fads and translate the latest scientific findings into easy-to-understand nutrition information.
Reasons to meet with a registered dietician include:
Food allergies or intolerance (dairy, wheat, nuts, etc.)
Nutritional needs before, during, or after pregnancy
Heart healthy nutrition
High blood pressure
Irritable bowel syndrome, Diverticulitis, or other digestive problems
Proper medications, combined with good nutrition, exercise, and self blood-glucose monitoring, allow for better blood sugar control, decreased complications and longer lives for those diagnosed with diabetes.
