NUTRITIONIST FOR DIABETICS
When you are diabetic, keeping a healthy blood sugar level is paramount to managing your diabetes. Any doctor nutritionist for diabetics can tell you that you should eat foods that are healthy for you and watch your portion size so you can try and control your blood sugar levels. How you eat, how much you eat, what you’re eating, and when you eat can make a big difference in your ability to control your blood sugar.
As a registered dietitian and licensed nutritionist dietitian, I see many patients who were told to eat healthy and watch their portion sizes but felt stuck in knowing what healthy foods are and how much is too much vs. too little to eat. Through the years, as a nutritionist for diabetics, I helped countless patients in their quest to learn how to get the nutrients they need to control their diabetes.
Part of Your Diabetes Team
Think about the last time you checked in with your doctor about your diabetes. Your doctor may have mentioned that you need to stabilize your blood sugar levels but you likely didn’t get a lot of help on how to keep your blood sugar levels stable. That is where I come in.
Your doctor may recommend working with a registered dietitian for diabetics – like me, but not every registered dietitian can treat patients with diabetes. I will work with you on creating a personalized food plan that looks at your eating schedule, food preferences, and your nutritional requirements. We will work together to come up with a healthy lifestyle – not diet – that can get your diabetes under control. We will also work through your own eating blockers and lifestyle choices to help you breakthrough old habits in order to create a sustainable lifestyle.
Medical Nutrition Therapy
When you hire a nutritionist for diabetics, the treatment plan usually follows medical nutrition therapy, or MNT for short. To help you manage your diabetes, medical nutrition therapy involves a diagnosis and therapeutic nutrition counseling services. We will discuss a variety of approaches to nutrition that will help you manage your diabetes like simplified meal plans, understanding healthy food choices, counting carbs, and behavior strategies. Research shows that utilizing a nutritionist for diabetics regularly will also help you manage your weight which can lead to improving your cholesterol levels and potentially decreasing the need for medication. You and I will be in this together.
