What is a Registered Dietitian?
Registered Dietitian and Registered Dietitian-Nutritionists (RD or RDN) are equal credentials. People who refer to themselves as nutritionists or registered dietitians should have also met criteria based on national standards of education, experience and of practice as set by the Commission on Dietetic Registration, but many erroneously misrepresent themselves as nutritionists. Make sure you are working with a registered dietitian or registered dietitian nutritionist. RD’s and RDN’s are not one trick ponies.
They are able to treat a wide variety of illnesses with hundreds of nutrition therapies as regulated by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. RD’s and RDN’s work in the treatment and prevention of diagnosed conditions by providing medical nutrition therapy. The RD/RDN often acts as part of a medical team, in various practice settings, such as hospitals, physician offices, private practice and other health care facilities. The work of the RD/RDN is clinically recognized as effective in preventing, treating and managing many conditions.
