Registered Dietitians are part of the CommUnityCare health care team. They have special training and understanding of the life sustaining powers of food. Registered Dietitians are medical professionals who look at disease causes and cures in terms of your diet. Some of the diseases that Registered Dietitians work to alleviate on a regular basis are obesity, diabetes and high blood pressure. They also work with patients to help them adjust their diets if they are nutrient deficient. For example, if a patient has a potassium deficiency the Registered Dietitian will help you to set up a potassium rich diet. A Registered Dietitian's main concern is that you are eating the proper foods to maximize your health. They also want patients to understand all the benefits a healthy diet has to offer.
