What is the difference between a Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist?
The term "nutritionist" is not legally regulated and anyone can call themselves a nutritionist regardless of their education level or expertise. A Registered Dietitian or Registered Dietitian Nutritionist has completed extensive training and education in the field of nutrition. Including holding a bachelors degree in nutrition, completing an extensive supervised internship at a healthcare facility and completing a rigorous examination to become credentialed.
Kidney Nutrition Specialist
I am licensed as a Certified Specialist in Renal Nutrition (CSR), from the Commission on Dietetic Registration. I have always had an interest in kidney disorders and have spent a lot of my time helping clients better manage their kidney disorders through medical nutrition therapy. Kidney disease has many obstacles and good nutrition is crucial for its prevention, management and treatment.
I have published several articles in the Journal of Renal Nutrition by the National Kidney Foundation (NKF), have helped with chapter revisions in kidney nutrition textbooks, and will be speaking at NKF 2019 Spring Clinical Meetings on Potassium as well as Plant Based Diets in Kidney Disease.
