When deciding to work with a registered dietitian (RD), it’s beneficial to review their specialty.
Although all dietitians go through the same curriculum (or similar) and pass the same national board exam, some may decide to extended their educational endeavors and focus within an area of special interest and obtain advanced degrees and certifications.
Just like other practitioners, dietitians also have specialties including renal, weight management, gastrointestinal, eating and digestive disorders, pediatrics, geriatrics, sports dietetics, and many more!
Patients can find a dietitian that fits their needs via referrals from their primary care providers or a search on healthcare professional websites such as www.healthprofs.com.
And of course, the patient and dietitian should be a good match! Meaning, the patient should feel comfortable sharing and creating goals with the dietitian.
