High Cholesterol in Children: Help Without Harming
With the epidemic in pediatric obesity, we are seeing an increase in high cholesterol levels among children. In fact, the American Academy of Pediatrics is now recommending that pediatricians do a standard cholesterol screen at annual visits for all children ages 9 to 11 years of age. It is important that any nutritional intervention that involves food restrictions of any kind be done carefully by a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) with pediatric expertise to avoid unintended consequences of those restrictions. Angela Lemond, RDN is here to discuss High Cholesterol in Children.
Lower Heart Disease Risk through Personalized Nutrition
Everyone has unique nutrition needs based on genetics and lifestyle which determines the nutrition guidelines I recommend. There is much confusion in the media and internet and even among “health experts” which makes it hard for the public to decide what dietary guidelines to follow. In order to provide individualized nutrition recommendations for my clients, I like to have information like results from advanced lipid panels, genetics, etc. Registered dietitian nutritionist and Academy Spokesperson Sonya Angelone is here to explain her approach to individualized nutritional recommendations.
