Dietetics at MSK Health and Performance Clinic
Registered Dietitians are food and nutrition experts who are reliable sources of evidence-based information with respect to healthy eating, preventative nutrition as well as specialized eating related to a variety of health conditions. Dietitians are regulated health professionals with the expertise to create an individualized nutrition plan for you based on your specific health concerns, personal and family medical history, risk factors, food preferences, culture and lifestyle.
Why See a Dietitian?
Over 1 in 4 Canadians suffer from lifestyle diseases such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, or high blood pressure. These are serious, life-threatening and life-altering conditions. They can complicate and even worsen health conditions, and limit ease and comfort of daily activities. Registered dietitians are specially trained to provide medical nutrition therapy to help individuals manage chronic conditions, promote health, and prevent illness.
