Nutrition Consultation

The Institute for Women’s Health (IWH) offers complete nutrition consultation services where a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) provides guidance and strategies to optimize nutrient intake based on client’s goals. Nutrition consultation services are offered for many conditions, such as sport performance, weight loss, hypertension, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and disease prevention. The services can also include how to incorporate more plants into the diet or how to follow a Mediterranean or DASH diet.

Prior to the nutrition consultation, the client will complete a health questionnaire to assess current health status and lifestyle factors (e.g., stress, physical activity, gastrointestinal function). The questionnaire will also include the client’s purpose for the visit and dietary goals. The client will also log dietary intake for 3 days prior to the visit using an online computer program.
