Suggest diet and exercise for osteoarthritis
Here are some suggestions:
Hello and welcome,
I see that your question didn't get answered for 5 hours. I was hoping that the one XXXXXXX dietician we have on this site would pick up your question, but as she hasn't (she may not be available), I will do my best to answer.
I have noted that you live in the XXXXXXX area. As a medical student at U of I, I worked briefly with Dr. XXXXXXX Ettner who used to teach his patients how to eat a vegetarian diet, including holding cooking seminars. I don't know if he still does that but here is his contact information. You can call his clinic to see if he still works with patients in this way: Address: 7126 N XXXXXXX Ave, Lincolnwood, IL 60712
Another place to explore whether what you are looking for exists in the XXXXXXX area would be to contact one of the vegan nutritionists and dietitians on the following list. They can possibly direct you to a clinic that is in the XXXXXXX area:
If you don't mind traveling, here is a vegan medical clinic that might interest you: http://latestvegannews.com/major-plant-based-medical-center-opening-washington-dc/#
I hope this information is helpful.
Suggest you repost, asking specifically for Dietician or Nutritionist.
I see that you want to learn a diet to alleviate pain for osteoarthritis. You can try contacting the sources I listed above in previous answer, or you can repost your second question on HCM, but be sure to write in the first line of your message "FOR DIETICIAN OR NUTRITIONIST ONLY". If you post this in the general practitioner section, be aware that it may take some time before a dietician sees it and responds.
You are right that medical practitioners do not have much nutrition training. When I was a medical student at University of Illinois, at the time we were one of the few med schools that actually had a course in nutrition. It was mostly biochemistry rather than applied to helping specific diseases.
If you have no further questions that I can answer, please go ahead and close the discussion. Best regards,
Bonnie Berger-Durnbaugh, MD
