FOODPICKER: Registered Dietitian
What is a Registered Dietitian?

A Registered Dietitian (RD) is an expert in the field of food and nutrition.  The requirements for the RD credential include a four-year bachelor's degree in dietetics, 6-12 month dietetic internship, and passing the Registration Examination for Dietitians.

How can a Registered Dietitian help me treat diabetes?

A Registered Dietitian can help you with weight management goals, determining how many carbohydrate choices (exchanges) you should have at each meal & snack, reading food labels, and addressing any other dietary related issues such as food allergies, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure.  Some Registered Dietitians are also Certified Diabetes Educators.

Where can I find a Registered Dietitian?

Ask your doctor for a referral to a Registered Dietitian in your area, check with the local hospital for an outpatient dietitian, or visit the American Dietetic Association website.

    FOODPICKER® is a program designed to help people with diabetes make better food choices.  Our hope is that people consider the foods they consume and how they can burn them off with exercise for good health.  We embrace the guidelines put forth by the American Diabetes Association as well as the American Dietetic & American Heart Associations.  This website is completely free and brought to you by volunteers in the health care field.
