Nutrition is a Cornerstone of Health

Welcome to the kick off of the “Ask the Dietitian” portion of the Lexington Medical Center blog. The registered dietitians at Lexington Medical Center are starting this blog to provide sound and accurate nutrition information, answer the questions you have, and talk about our favorite subject – FOOD!

Our goal is to motivate and empower you and your family to make informed food choices to improve your health and wellness. Along the way, we hope to help you prevent and manage your risk factors for the chronic conditions that plague so many in our community. Nutrition plays a major role in hypertension, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity, kidney disease and many other conditions.

So visit often to learn what you need to know to make the foods you choose work for you. Before you know it, you will be building a strong cornerstone to support your health. And, most importantly, feel free to “Ask the Dietitian”!
