So much of what goes on in our bodies is the result of what and how we eat. Many of the most common health problems we see at Sky Lakes Medical Center have a direct correlation to diet, exercise and other lifestyle choices.
Hence, one of the primary goals for our community is to encourage better proactive care. By taking better care of yourself through exercise and healthy eating habits, you can potentially avoid serious health issues down the road.
A critical component to our healthcare system is our nutrition services department. Our registered dietitians are qualified to provide nutrition counseling, an essential component of a healthy lifestyle and comprehensive healthcare. If you would like to improve your health and quality of life, or are trying to manage a health condition, you may benefit from learning more about nutrition.
A few examples of conditions that can be improved by nutrition education include:
- Heart disease.
- High blood pressure.
- Weight loss.
- Kidney failure.
- Irritable bowel syndrome.
