Dietitians have special skills in translating scientific and medical decisions related to food and health to inform the general public. They also play an important role in health promotion. A Nationally Registered Dietitian (R.D.) has an interest in science, people and food, able to communicate with people from all areas of the community, the ability to explain complex things simply, a positive and motivating attitude and an understanding, non-discriminatory approach as well as patience and a sense of humour. In addition to your doctor, an important factor of your health care needs will be a dietitian. A dietitian is a nutrition expert who has passed a national credentialing exam. They can use the title Registered Dietitian (R.D.), or in some states Licensed Dietitian (L.D.). Some dietitians take an additional exam for the credential of Certified Diabetes Educator (C.D.E.). Regardless of whether a dietitian is a C.D.E., it is important for you to choose one experienced with diabetic meal planning. They will need to work with your doctor to assist you in fine-tuning your medications, meals and exercise requirements. They also will be able to assist you with reading food labels, and providing cooking and grocery shopping tips.
