When should I see a dietitian?
There are many things that may lead to a person benefiting from the support of a dietitian.
Some things that someone may find beneficial to see a dietitian include:
– A newly diagnosed chronic disease
– Significant weight change
– Recent poor food intake, poor appetite, or difficulty preparing or eating food
– Changes in medication
– Periodic reviews of medical nutrition therapy
Your dietitian will consider your personal goals, culture and food traditions. They will think about the information that you have given them about your diet history, medical history, eating patterns, personal preferences and create a nutrition plan for you.
