I'm begging anyone who has professional training/experience to message me if willing to offer a bit of advice. It's for my dad, so I don't want to post details here, but it's mostly advice for us on how to make sure we find a good one because his situation is so complex. Basically, anything healthy, he can't eat.

Also, not vegan specific because he can't eat fruits or most vegetables. My mom and I are way out of our depths, and my dad isn't likely to suddenly start doing all this on his own, so we need to make sure we find the best possible person.

I know this was vague. I'm so used to the idea that a healthy vegan diet can fix any dietary related problems, that my head is spinning. (not looking for non-vegan advice! Just how to navigate all this). I'm so worried about him.

Thanks! <3

Eta: part of the problem is a specialist isn't necessarily best because we have this: renal der, low potassium, and pre-diabetic, and they all seem to conflict

I am not a dietitian yet, but I will be next year. I just finished two years of masters in nutrition classes and i just have to do an internship. i dunno why I'm giving you my qualifications, but I might be able to help if you want to PM me.
