About Me

Cheryl Orlansky

I'm Cheryl Orlansky, and I have been a registered and licensed dietitian and diabetes and care and education specialist for over 30 years. I've worked as a contractor for Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, GA in health promotion services for employees. For the past 17 years, I led a diabetes and nutrition program in a large multi site physician practice, a Northside Hospital network provider.  


My expertise is weight management, diabetes education and management, and chronic disease prevention and management (high blood pressure, high cholesterol, cardiovascular disease, cancer or preDiabetes).  I am also a Monash University low FODMAP IBS diet trained dietitian. If you are ready for lifestyle changes, I can empower you to follow a sustainable nutrition and health plan.
