Nutritionist

Your transplant dietitian’s role is to ensure that you understand your individualized nutrition plan and are motivated about following it. At your initial visit, your dietitian will assess your gastrointestinal symptoms, consider possible vitamin and mineral deficiencies, conduct a nutrition/weight history and provide dietary education.  At the end of this visit, the dietitian will help you create nutritional goals and - if further education or intervention is required - provide you with additional direction.  Your transplant dietitian will meet with you during each of your hospital visits, adjusting your goals based on your progress and medical condition. With any additional nutrition concerns, you are strongly encouraged to call or to send an e-mail to your dietitian.
