Frequently Asked Questions


How do you know a renal nutritionist is a true nutrition expert?

An image of an arrow icon
Anyone can call themselves a renal nutritionist, therefore, there are a few key signs you should look out for to ensure you are working with an expert. One of the best ways to deduce whether or not an individual is qualified is to pay attention to their title and credentials. A Registered Dietitian (RD) (also called a registered dietitian-nutritionist [RDN]) is a specific professional credential that can only be earned by an individual who has at least a bachelor’s degree. This individual will have also completed a series of undergraduate courses approved by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics, supervised practice programs, and a national exam for the Commission on Dietetic Registration. Many Registered Dietitians also have a Master’s degree or other advanced board certifications. Registered Dietitians are also required to complete ongoing continuing education to remain up to date on best practices.

How much does it cost to work with a renal nutritionist?

An image of an arrow icon
The cost of hiring a renal nutritionist will differ depending on location, level of experience, and clinical specialty. Because most patients see renal nutritionists for months, or even years, at a time, some nutritionists will offer monthly or annual packages. Remember that working with a qualified renal dietitian is an investment in your health, and will set you up for success in the future.

What does it mean if a service has a two-week risk-free trial?

An image of an arrow icon
A two-week risk-free trial is designed to help guarantee customer satisfaction. Customers are granted two weeks of complimentary services. During that time, the customer can decide whether or not they would like to continue with the service or opt for another one.

What is a nutrition specialist’s role?

An image of an arrow icon
An image of an arrow icon Before an individual is matched with a renal nutritionist at Top Nutrition Counseling, they will undergo a nutrition consultation. This is essentially a matching service where a specialist will learn more about a prospective client's needs. This allows the nutrition specialist to learn as much as they can about the client in order for them to match the client with the best possible renal nutritionist for them.

What do I do if I disapprove of a nutrition specialist’s suggestions?

An image of an arrow icon
If you don’t like the recommendations made by a nutrition specialist, don’t shy away or be afraid to tell them why. A nutrition specialist’s primary goal is to make your nutrition journey the best it can possibly be – they will do anything in their power to achieve this goal. If there is a specific reason that you disagree with a nutrition specialist’s suggestions, explain your reasoning and why you are dissatisfied. The nutrition specialist can then go back to the drawing board and find a renal nutritionist that better suits your interests.

Frequently Asked Questions

What makes an expert registered dietitian nutritionist?

An image of an arrow icon
An image of an arrow icon An expert dietitian nutritionist will have an advanced degree, have completed a certain number of hours of supervised experience and required dietetics coursework, and have passed a board-certifying exam. All highly qualified nutritionists will have the letters “RD,” “RDN,” or “CNS” in their titles.

How much does the service cost?

An image of an arrow icon
There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as the cost of working with a registered dietitian nutritionist will vary depending on the individual's qualifications, experience, and location. However, on average, dietitians charge between $50 and $100 per hour for their services.

What does a two-week risk-free trial mean?

An image of an arrow icon
A two-week risk-free trial is a period during which a client can use a service without having to pay for it. If the customer is not satisfied with the service, they can cancel their subscription or contract within two weeks and not be charged.

What does the matching specialist help you with?

An image of an arrow icon
Most customers have certain criteria or prerequisites that they want the nutritionist to possess. Detailing what these criteria are will help a matching specialist connect you with the most compatible nutritionist for you.

What if I don’t like the recommendations a matching specialist provides?

An image of an arrow icon
If you don’t like the nutritionist that the matching specialist connects you with, be vocal about it. Speak up about the things that you like and don’t like about the current nutritionist you are working with. This information will allow the matching specialist to connect you with a more compatible nutritionist for you.

What’s the difference between a registered nutritionist and a registered dietitian?

An image of an arrow icon
A registered nutritionist and a registered dietitian perform very similar services. However, the titles of these two types of food and nutrition experts are not interchangeable. Nutritionists and dietitians have varying educational requirements and credentials. The training required to become a nutritionist is slightly less streamlined than the training required to become a dietitian.

Are registered dietitians covered by health insurance?

An image of an arrow icon
This really depends on your reasons for meeting with a weight loss nutritionist. Some insurance plans will only choose to cover preventative services offered by a nutritionist. This can include nutrition counseling. All insurances must cover nutritional services to those at risk for chronic disease under the Affordable Care Act.
