Let's get to know each other.
Hi! My name is Lucy Zhang.
I am a registered dietitian (RD) and certified diabetes educator (CDE) based out of Ajax, Ontario.
I grew up in small town, rural Ontario (hello Grey Bruce), before moving to the city to pursue a Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Toronto. Three degrees and eight years later, I graduated from the Master of Science in Foods and Nutrition program at Western University.
As a registered dietitian, I have worked in settings ranging from diabetes education, to oncology, to acute care. Currently, beyond my private practice here at Beyond Diabetes Nutrition, I also work as a renal dietitian in a hospital-based dialysis centre.
I recognize how frustrating it is when healthcare feels
fragmented - when the nutrition advice you receive for one health condition seems to contradict the one you receive for another.
My goal is to help individuals juggling multiple health conditions to:
Simplify and prioritize nutrition needs when facing seemingly conflicting health demands.
Achieve improved blood sugar management.
Balance health recommendations with enjoyment and joy.
