Resources For Dietary Advice
We often get questions regarding the best diet for a person with an inflammatory condition. Although there are foods that carry a greater inflammatory impact, eliminating these foods don’t always make a difference for a person’s inflammatory condition. The best person to ask about your dietary needs are registered dieticians who are held accountable for their advice by a regulatory college.
EatRight Ontario was a great community resource managed by registered dieticians. This service answered thousands of questions over the phone and e-mail for 10 years. As of March 2018 this service was cancelled. Ontario residents can now call Telehealth to speak a dietitian at no charge at 1-866-797-0000.
UnlockFood.ca is a great resource that is managed by the Dieticians of Canada. The site focuses on expert guidance for everyday eating, including articles, featured topics, and a newsletter. One of the many topics listed on the site is arthritis. It includes food choices and physical activity that can help with arthritis. Recommendations for gout are also included on this site. We encourage you to take some time to look at this great resource.
