Registered Dietitians Identify Diet 'Gaps' - and How to Handle Them
Date:12/10/2009

WASHINGTON, Dec. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- It wouldn't be surprising to find that registered dietitians (RDs) are among the healthiest eaters in the United States, but their healthy habits extend beyond diet. Registered dietitians demonstrate a commitment to the three pillars of health: a healthy diet, supplements and regular exercise. According to new research from the "Life...supplemented" 2009 Healthcare Professionals (HCP) Impact Study, eight in 10 registered dietitians view dietary supplements as important for maintaining health.

Many include themselves in this group, with 76 percent agreeing that supplement use can address their own diet gaps.

Which supplements are registered dietitians taking? Most commonly, they are taking a multivitamin (84 percent). RDs also take specialty supplements (64 percent take at least one specialty supplement), such as Omega-3 fish oils (47 percent), herbal or botanical supplements (46 percent) or fiber (22 percent). Over half of registered dietitians take supplements for improved bone health (58 percent) and overall health and wellness (53 percent).

"Registered dietitians know people's eating habits, and we know that people don't always eat correctly," says Leslie Bonci, RD, director of sports medicine nutrition for the Department of Orthopedic Surgery and the Center for Sports Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and advisor to the "Life...supplemented" campaign.
