Who Can Benefit from a Nutritional Consultation?
Lots of people can benefit from working with a nutritionist, for many different reasons–whether you need a complete diet overhaul, are looking to manage a medical condition, want to fine-tune your food choices, or get inspiration for new, healthy recipes. It’s best to book a nutritional consultation after a check-up with your primary care provider. They can let you know whether you have any specific conditions that can be addressed with nutrition, such as elevated blood sugar or cholesterol, or blood pressure issues.
While some patients come in for a nutritional consultation to learn more about how their food choices affect their health, others end up in my office at their doctor’s suggestion. The following are just a few of the conditions that can benefit specifically from dietary interventions:
High blood pressure
Diabetes and pre-diabetic conditions
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
Obesity or overweight
Kathe does not diagnose or treat illnesses, but she can help you understand how your body functions and how certain nutrients may affect it. First she looks at your diet and how well that works. Good nutrition starts with eating the right foods for your body
