Nutrition Services

At the Diabetes and Nutrition Center we have a team of Licensed Registered Dietitians (LRD), food and nutrition experts, who can translate the science of nutrition into practical solutions for healthy living. Our LRD's use their nutrition expertise to help individuals make unique, positive lifestyle changes. They have knowledge in a wide range of topics many of which are included below.

Patients may also request a nutrition assessment complete with indirect calorimetry. Indirect calorimetry, also known as a metabolic cart, is a machine that measures oxygen consumption and will calculate the exact amount of calories one needs for their body and metabolism. This tool allows the dietitian to help the patient create personalized meal plans and calorie goals.

Talk with your doctor about medical nutrition therapy and ask for a referral for insurance purposes. Reimbursement by insurance for these services varies. Please call your individual insurance company to find out more about reimbursement.
