Nutrition Counseling for Diabetes
Our vision for nutrition services starts with you. You deserve nutrition services that are as individualized as you are. Because one size doesn’t fit all when it comes to improving your relationship with food. That’s why we have Registered Dietitians (RD’s) on staff: to give you the individualized approach you have been searching for. We believe that your health and wellbeing is so much more than just a number. From chronic disease management, to healing your relationship with food, we give you evidence-based nutrition information and tools to apply that to your everyday life.
Nutrition for Diabetes
Personalized Diets for Diabetes Patients:
A diabetes diagnosis can be scary. For those of you who have been living with diabetes, you know that it can be much more complicated than staying away from carbs. There are a variety of factors that impact blood glucose levels, and conquering your diet can feel like the large barrier to overcome. This is where a Health Loft dietitian comes into play. Working with a dietitian can give you the confidence you need to continue eating what you love while still maintaining or even improving your blood sugar levels.
After working with a Health Loft dietitian, patients walk away with:
- Nutrition education around healthy food choices
- Improved portion control
- Confidence for carbohydrate counting
- Food exchange lists to regulate blood sugar at meals
- Behavior change strategies around nutrition and physical activity
- Regulated blood glucose levels
- Lowered hemoglobin A1c levels
