Registered Dietitian Nutritionists

What is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN)?  Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDNs) are food and nutrition experts with a degree from an accredited dietetics program and who completed a supervised practice requirement, passed a national exam and continue professional development throughout their careers.

A Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) can help you make lifestyle changes if you are managing or working to prevent the following diet-related conditions:

  • Diabetes or prediabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Kidney stones or other kidney problems
  • Lipid management problems
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome
  • Irritable bowel syndrome or other digestive issues
  • Food allergies and intolerances (lactose intolerance, egg allergy, etc.)
  • Celiac disease (gluten-free diets)
  • Pre-, ante- or postnatal nutrition
  • Pediatric nutrition or weight concerns
  • Osteoporosis
  • Managing cancer or treatment side effects
  • Vitamin or mineral deficiency (iron, vitamin D, etc.)
  • Unintentional weight gain or loss

Dietitian visits typically last 45 to 60 minutes based on the needs of the discussion.  In this visit, we may explore your history with food, current lifestyle, medical history, and any other factors affecting your nutrition habits in a non-judgmental way.  We will go in-depth about your current eating patterns and partner with you to come up with a personalized nutrition plan that fits your lifestyle, food preferences, and health goals. Think of these sessions as a time for us to get to know you and best support you through easy, sustainable changes. Follow-up visits are important to talk through any barriers or successes that you may experience in the process. Nutrition sessions can be done in-person, over the telephone, or virtually by video.

When you start working with a dietitian, you should come prepared to engage and take an active role in the sessions. The dietitian will be reliant on information from you to help partner with you in creating a nutrition plan that will work for your lifestyle.

By working with a dietitian, you will learn how to better manage any nutrition-related health conditions or work toward any nutrition goals you may have.

If you are interested in meeting with a dietitian, you can call the Family Health Center, self-schedule through MyChart, or get a referral from a provider.

There is never a cost associated with dietitian visits. All services are provided free of charge.
