Nutrition Counseling and Weight Management

A registered dietitian can assist you in managing many of your health concerns, including, but not limited to, achieving and maintaining a healthy weight, managing your blood sugars, reducing cardiovascular disease risk factors, and balancing key nutrients for optimal kidney function. Nutrition counseling is also available for those who would like to be proactive about their health or weight status.

We know that making dietary changes is not easy, but with the help of our dedicated dietitian, you can learn how to select healthy food choices specific to your health or weight concerns and learn how to prepare delicious, healthy meals. Unsupervised diets, or “fad/binge” diets are usually harmful and not effective long term. We can separate facts from “fads” for you in order to provide the most accurate nutrition advice that works for your specific lifestyle.

During your appointment with the dietitian, you can expect to receive individualized counseling catered to your specific needs. You will discuss your current diet and weight history and any medical concerns that exist. Together, you will come up with improvements to your current eating plan and set goals that fit your lifestyle.

If nutrition and weight loss counseling options have not worked in the past, our bariatric surgery solutions are safe and comprehensive. They are performed by expert, board-certified surgeons and assisted by experienced follow-up teams.

Making lifestyle changes towards living a healthier life is a journey that takes time. That’s why The Center for Diabetes, Nutrition and Metabolism provides ongoing medical advice and support.
