Services for people with Diabetes
What is different about my services and how do I help people with Diabetes?
Many people ask that when I first speak with them about how I can help. There are a lot of places to get diet and health information out there – so what is different about me?
What sets me apart is my training as a Certified Diabetes Educator in addition to being a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist.
There is not one way too eat when you have diabetes and the old “diabetic diet” is outdated. There are no foods that you have to eat and no foods that are forbidden.
Together, we can develop a plan based on your health goals, preferences, and health conditions. I offer Personalized Nutrition Therapy in the form of Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT).
I often say there is more to diabetes than nutrition and there really is.
Controlling and understanding your diabetes also means knowing the effects of many other health related issues … things like:
- Blood Pressure
- Losing weight
- Physical Activity
Along with …
- Monitoring glucose with a meter and what the numbers mean
- What tests and labs should be done and how often
- What to do when you are sick, have a high or low blood blood sugar
- Making behavior changes
All of these combined with good nutrition and knowing what tools and resources are there to make to make living with diabetes easier are part of what I offer clients that attend Control Your Diabetes. Control Your Life Class.
Whether you are newly diagnosed with diabetes or have had it for a while, if you are ready to change your life – please reach out to me and we can discuss how I can help you manage and control your diabetes.
