The Importance of Proper Nutrition
Nutrition is critical to everyone's health and well-being. Proper nutrition means eating a balance of healthy foods from all the food groups, including protein, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals, and water. Eating a variety of healthy foods helps ensure that your body gets all the nutrients it needs to function properly.
Good nutrition is especially important for those who are pregnant, growing children and adolescents, people who are recovering from illness or injury, and older adults. People who have chronic health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, or high blood pressure also need to be extra mindful of their diet in order to maintain their health. However, everyone needs to have an adequate diet to avoid nutritional deficiencies.
There are many ways to ensure you're getting proper nutrition. Talk to our registered dietitian and provider about your specific dietary needs.
Impact of Nutrition on Your Chronic Illness
Managing a chronic illness can be a difficult and frustrating process. In addition to managing symptoms and side effects, many people with chronic illnesses also must carefully monitor their diet.
For example, people with heart disease may need to limit their intake of saturated fats to reduce their risk of having a heart attack or stroke. People with diabetes need to be careful about their blood sugar levels, and so they may need to eat more complex carbohydrates that release energy slowly. Finally, those with arthritis may need to eat more foods that contain omega-3 fatty acids to reduce inflammation.
Of course, following a healthy diet is easier said than done. There are many different opinions about what is best to eat, and it can be hard to sort through all the information.
Fortunately, working with our registered dietitian can help you to develop a personalized plan that meets your individual needs. Making small changes in your diet can make a big difference in how you feel, so it is worth taking the time to learn what works best for you.
