Ratings and Reviews
Useful calculators and nutrient references
There aren't a lot of useful RD apps out there, so I was glad to see that the Academy put this one out. It works well and has some useful things, such as:
-Energy requirement calculators (Mifflin, Harris Benedict, peds calculations, etc)
-Anthropometric tools (BMI, body surface area,height from knee, wt change assessment, etc)
-Conversion calculators (metric to U.S., cooking conversions)
-Nutrient DRIs for micro and macronutrients
-Physical assessment tools (signs of deficiencies, anatomy images)
-Label reading (health claims, nutrient claims, food allergy labeling info, etc)
-Fluid requirements - estimation methods, calculator, water requirements by age
-Physical activity- hydration guideines for athletes, physical activity guidelines by age group
-Symptom management - very limited, just constipation, diarrhea, low appetite and n/v management. I hope they'll add more to this section or create an MNT section w/ recs for MNT current guidelines.
Overall, a good app, though somewhat basic so probably best for a newer dietitian but I find the calculations useful even after several years practicing.
Wish they would add more!
It would be great if the app was updated. I’m a dietetic Intern and I would love to see pictures and guidelines to help do physical assessments for malnutrition etc.
Not something I would use
This application has some built in calculators and references. It is not something I find useful in my practice in the adult clinical world.
