Why should I see a Registered Dietitian?

What can I eat? This is often the first thought that you may have when you are diagnosed with diabetes, celiac disease or are struggling to manage your weight. A Registered Dietitian is the nutrition expert who can help you choose practical solutions for healthy eating based on your individual needs. Your dietitian will work with you to develop a meal plan, read labels or figure out how to eat out successfully. Registered Dietitians at our center can help you with diabetes, weight management, cardiac disease, GI disease, eating disorders and many other nutrition-related conditions. Talk to your doctor about a referral to see a Registered Dietitian and check with your insurance company to determine if nutrition counseling is a covered benefit. Most insurances and Medicare cover diabetes services. Call 908-237-6920 for more information.
