Springfield Clinic's Dietetics & Nutrition Department offers a clinically driven, community-based approach to nutritional health and wellness. Our registered dietitian provides personalized counseling and education in all aspects of diet and nutrition for weight management and disease control.
While genetics play a role in many chronic illnesses, diet and other lifestyles factors can have a real impact on the prevention and treatment of many health issues. If you have high cholesterol, diabetes, high blood pressure or are overweight, seeing an RD regularly may be an investment in good health. For example, recent research shows that receiving education, support and referrals from an RD helped people with type 2 diabetes lose more weight, take fewer medications and feel better than those who didn't seek help.
