Nutrición

Nutrition plays a very important role in our health and well-being, especially with things like disease prevention, management of disease and weight loss/management.

Our registered dieticians (RD) are here to aid in the progress and achievements of your goals. Our dietitians counsel and educate patients about nutrition concerns including diabetic diets, weight loss, weight gain, low carbohydrate, and other special diets. From weight loss, diabetic restrictions, low fat and cholesterol, gluten free, low sodium, pregnancy, and eating plans for adolescents; we ensure that each nutrition plan is tailored for you! 

Diabetes is a growing disease in America. Our staff can help you learn how to reduce the chances of developing diabetes or, if you have diabetes, help you learn how to manage your diabetes. Whether its discussing insulin management or at home blood sugar checks, our dieticians are able to aid every step of the way. We also have a Educador certificado en diabetes that is specialized in treating patients with diabetes.

We offer classes that discuss various topics around nutrition, weight loss, diabetes, and health management to help you. You can expect to see topics such as:

  • Healthy Meal Planning/Preparation
  • Basics of Diabetes
  • Ejercicios esenciales

It depends upon your insurance plan. If you have Medicaid, you will not have any out-of-pocket cost.
