Registered Dietitian Nutritionists

A registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) is a highly-trained professional who has passed the rigorous certification requirements of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The Mile Bluff dietitian team members have all undergone extensive education and training courses to stay up-to-date on the latest in nutritional science. Members of the team have certifications in specialized fields such as sport, pediatric and renal (kidney) nutrition.

Mile Bluff's registered dietitian nutritionists are certified by the state of Wisconsin, and continue to seek out educational opportunities to keep current with the most evidence-based practice guidelines.

Nutritional Advice Tailored to Your Tastes

When you see an RDN, you will not be subject to a “one-size-fits-all” diet. Every person is unique, from genetics, to lifestyle, to health history. Mile Bluff's dietitians interview clients to find out their individual needs, favorite foods and eating and exercise habits. Only then can everyone work together to prioritize and set realistic, achievable health goals for change.

Chronic Disease Management

There are several conditions - such as high blood pressure, diabetes and even cancer - that require patients to make changes in their eating habits. Mile Bluff's dietitians can help you learn more about your dietary restrictions, and assist you in creating a diet that incorporates all the important nutritional markers you should be aiming for.

Food Allergy Management

Celiac disease, food allergies and other conditions, can often make diet building a frustrating experience. Those who feel completely discouraged by their diet often end abandoning it, which can result in long-term health issues. Mile Bluff's dietitians will not only teach you how to read food labels so you'll know what to look for and what to avoid, they will also help you build a balanced diet that suits your personal tastes.

Long-Term Weight Loss Goals

Though there are numerous resources out there offering weight-loss advice, it is only by working with a medical professional that you can be sure your weight-loss diet will be both safe and effective. Mile Bluff's dietitians can help you develop unique strategies to help with meal planning and grocery shopping. They may also help you start a food journal to help you organize your eating habits. One of the primary goals of the RDN team is to help clients feel empowered and excited to make positive lifestyle changes.
