Allergies and Intolerance
Often with multiple allergies and intolerances, getting a complete diet that tastes amazing can be a challenge. It may feel like a constant game of guessing and elimination that not only impacts your ability to take in required nutrients, but also causes fear and frustration in not knowing what is safe to eat, especially when you are away from home.
What you need to know before choosing a Dietitian:
A Registered Dietitian can help you understand which foods and beverages are safe to consume and how best to avoid items that may cause a reaction. When foods or food groups need to be avoided, your eating plan may be lacking in important nutrients, like certain vitamins and minerals. A Dietitian can help ensure you get the nutrition you need for your health and lifestyle.
What to expect when working with a Dietitian:
Your Dietitian will discuss your normal food intake and any symptoms that have occurred with the ingestion of suspected foods. They will determine what nutrients are missing and create a personalized plan to fill in the gaps created by problematic foods and find ways to replace those foods with alternatives that offer greater satisfaction so you don’t feel like you are missing anything.
