Nutritionist

Find a Nutritionist in San Francisco

A Nutritionist is an expert trained in the field of nutritional science who utilizes the role of nutrients for the promotion of health and prevention of disease. Nutritionists do this by using their extensive knowledge of the nutritive value of foods, nutrients required by the body at various stages of development, and the role of nutrients and diet in health. This is achieved by careful analysis of a client's diet, lifestyle, medical history, laboratory tests, physical examination and general state of health. Nutritionists use dietary changes based on each individual patient's needs. Nutritionists often work in clinical settings and see patients in their own or in doctors' offices.
