Nutrition Therapy

Since a person’s diet can greatly influence blood sugar levels, nutrition plays a vital role in the life of someone with diabetes. We provide you with individualized medical nutrition therapy and diabetes self-management education. The focus is on support for diet and lifestyle changes related to diabetes.

Our dietitians provide nutrition assessment and planning, including a day-by-day guide, “Living with Diabetes.” The guide helps patients quickly and easily adjust their meal plans to keep diabetes under control. With guidance from our experienced, certified dietitians, patients learn about:

  • Healthy snacks
  • Eating out
  • Grocery shopping
  • Judging portion sizes
  • Reading food labels
  • Carbohydrates
  • Appropriate physical activity
  • Hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia
  • Dealing with the impact of illness on meal planning
  • Suggested cookbooks and sample menus
  • Body mass index

When long-term guidance is needed, our clinical dietitian team provides additional counseling services on an individual or group basis
