If you have been thinking about weight management, eating more healthy foods, or changing your diet to address digestive issues, a KishHealth System registered dietitian can help you. Our approach is no gimmicks, multi-disciplinary treatment, and evidence-based education.

Registered dietitians, or RDs, are food and nutrition experts, translating the science of nutrition into practical solutions for healthy living. The expertise, training and credentials that back a registered dietitian are vital for promoting positive lifestyle choices. Some RDs may call themselves "nutritionists," but not all nutritionists are registered dietitians. The RD credential can only be used by practitioners who have met specific educational and professional requirements.

A KishHealth registered dietitian will become your partner, helping you improve your health and eating habits based on your lifestyle, preferences, and medical issues.

All assessments and education sessions are conducted by registered dietitians, who are trained in the scientific principles of medical nutrition therapy for:

  • Weight loss
  • Weight management
  • High cholesterol
  • Hypertension
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Gluten free diet
  • Food intolerance/allergies
  • Pregnancy
  • Bariatric surgery (gastric bypass & lap band)
  • Celiac Disease (gluten sensitivity)
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Renal insufficiency

How to Lose Weight with the Help of a Registered Dietitian

All of our education sessions are based on the guidelines of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. There are no pills, drinks, hidden costs, or unrealistic demands within our programs. We work with our clients, their physicians, and other healthcare professionals to develop a comprehensive plan, tailored to the unique goals and lifestyles of every client.

Registered dietitians draw on their experience to develop a personalized nutrition plan and diet for individuals of all ages. They are able to separate facts from fads and translate nutritional science into information you can use. A registered dietitian can put you on the path to a healthy weight, eating healthy foods and reducing your risk of chronic disease.

  • Nutrition guidelines from a nutrition expert
  • Meal planning
