Nutrition for Kidney Disease and Dialysis
People with declining kidney function will need to make lifestyle and nutritional changes to ensure there are no further health complications. Your doctor will suggest a renal diet, which a Registered Dietitian can help you put together. A renal diet consists of limiting salt, potassium, phosphorus, and fluid. For those on dialysis, you will need increased protein, while those not on dialysis will need reduced protein.
Nutrition for Cancer
Nutrition is an important part of cancer treatment, and eating the right type of foods can help you stay strong before, during, and after treatment. Treatments for cancer include radiation therapy, chemotherapy, hormone therapy, biological immunotherapy, and/or surgery. Much of these treatments can cause the individual to lose their appetite, and feel weak. Working with a Registered Dietitian in finding a proper eating regimen can help improve outcomes from treatment, and reduce future complications down the road (such as malnutrition).
Nutrition for Older Adults
Good nutrition is important no matter what your age. Certain changes that occur as we age include a loss of muscle mass, and osteoporosis. Proper nutrition can help reduce these changes by eating foods rich in protein, calcium, and vitamin D. Just because we age, does not mean that our health has to decline.
Nutrition for Pediatrics
Starting early with proper nutrition will ensure your child grows up with a healthy relationship with food and their body. It's important for parents to think about their food decisions and the impact it has on their children.
Nutrition for Vegans and Vegetarians
Vegans and Vegetarians have different needs than those who consume meat. While eating a plant based diet has been shown to be one of the healthiest diets, it is vital to ensure you are meeting all your nutrient needs. Common deficiencies found in vegan and vegetarian diets include vitamin B12, vitamin D, calcium, iron, and zinc. Contact us to work with a Registered Dietitian who will guarantee all your nutritional needs are met through proper meal planning.
The Ketogenic Diet
The Ketogenic diet is a high-fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet that forces the body to burn fats rather than carbohydrates. The Keto diet has become a popular diet as of late because people find that they are able to drop weight really quickly, while having improved energy levels. The key is to find a long-term, sustainable diet plan-if the Ketogenic diet fits with your lifestyle, then a Registered Dietitian can help you put together a proper meal plan.
