Whether you are in the best shape of your life or in need of a tune-up, nutrition and lifestyle have a large impact on your health. We at Madison County Memorial Hospital believe that variety and moderation are two critical factors that help determine if your dietary habits will foster health or hasten illness and chronic conditions. Diet is one element that is under your control, unlike age and genetics.
Increasing your consumption of whole grains, fruit, and vegetables can reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer, and obesity. Choosing lean meats and low-fat dairy products are also important in reducing the risk of these and other chronic conditions.
Madison County Memorial Hospital contracts with a registered dietitian to meet your nutritional requirements. A registered dietitian is an expert in the field of nutrition. We also employ a full-time certified dietary manager who is available to counsel patients with diabetes , obesity, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, kidney disease, and many other conditions.
