As we get older, it becomes more and more important to emphasize a focus on healthy eating and nutrition to support your body’s health and wellbeing. Appropriate nutrient intake and hydration are vital for your health! It can be difficult to make adjustments when we’re already comfortable with our current lifestyle, but with the help of a Registered Dietitian, those adjustments can be seamless.
Specific medical conditions might require an individualized diet, so it’s important to have your most recent lab tests available when you consult with your Dietitian so they can give you the most accurate recommendations for your body. Remember to come to your appointment prepared with any questions you might have.
