The effect of diet on fertility is frequently overlooked in favor of low tech and high tech fertility treatments. However, improving diet can have a profound impact on the ability to conceive. This leads to a reduced need for very expensive, high tech, in vitro fertilization procedures. Even for patients who require IVF, an improved diet will result in fewer complications, better outcomes, and less complicated pregnancies. Dietitians will benefit from a more in-depth understanding of what it takes to conceive, current reproductive treatments, and how to integrate appropriate medical nutrition therapy into fertility practices. Join a Reproductive Endocrinologist and a Registered Dietitian who have been working to optimize lifestyles for women and men to create successful pregnancies.
