Boone Hospital Center's experienced Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDNs) can help you reach your nutrition goals through a variety of services in-person or virtually.

Weight management:
We use a patient-centered approach, working with each individual to find out what is going to work best for them to achieve their long term weight management goals. No two people are alike – and for that reason your weight management plan should be tailored specifically to you. Meet with a dietitian today to get help creating a personalized plan based on your medical history, lifestyle and food preferences. 
As stated on the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics webpage, many people find long-term weight management success through working with a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN). Research shows that at least two sessions per month with an RDN lead to successful weight loss and at least one session per month for weight loss maintenance. 

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
Many people are able to manage IBS symptoms through diet by working with a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN). An RDN will work with you to identify which foods and habits might cause trouble, find alternatives to those foods, and help you learn healthy eating strategies to reduce the risk of pain.

Pre-ESRD
Meeting with a dietitian can help people with kidney disease better understand basic dietary guidelines for renal insufficiency, and address nutritional concerns while preserving and maintaining kidney function. Your dietitian will work with you to develop an eating and exercise plan that considers individual food preferences, level of physical activity, lifestyle and special needs to help accomplish disease management goals. Common concerns among people with kidney disease are heart health – your dietitian will work with you to ensure the best diet for both kidney and heart health so you don’t have to compromise. 

Food Allergies
Working with a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) can help provide a comprehensive education on label reading, food ingredients, and alternatives to food choices based on allergies. We know food allergies can be overwhelming, but we are here to make living with a food allergy manageable. 

Wound
A registered dietitian nutritionist can develop an individualized eating plan with optimum amounts of calories, protein, fluids, vitamins and minerals for your specific needs to help aide in your healing process. 

General Nutrition
A registered dietitian nutritionist can help you establish an individualized healthy eating plan that includes specific food preferences and goals for physical activity. Whether it is training for a 5k, marathon, triathlon, keeping up with the kids or grandkids, a dietitian can help you maximize your nutrition best suited for you. 

Oncology
An RDN can help you find the best food choices and ways to eat based on how you feel and what you like, determine if supplements are right for you and which supplements, assess whether nutrient rich beverages and foods should be prescribed to help you get the nutrition you needs, and help answer questions about food, supplements, nutrients and overall diet. We know that there is so much misleading information out there, and we are her to help you wade through that information and to ensure that you are doing what is best for you personally. 

Cardiovascular
Working with your RDN to create a diet that best suits your lifestyle and food preferences while doing the most for your heart. Whether you are recovering from a cardiovascular event or aiming to prevent, we are here for you to help fuel your body the heart healthy way. 

GI
Constipated? Have diarrhea? Bloated? Stomach hurts too often? Many of these symptoms and more can be managed through your diet. Work with your RDN to help find what foods work best for your symptom management.  

Pancreatitis
Low fat diets can be confusing and seem difficult to find food to eat. Work with your RDN to come up with an individualized meal plan tailored to your needs and preferences, while ensuring that it is nutritionally adequate.
