McLaren’s diabetes education program can help you successfully manage diabetes by learning to control blood sugar through proper nutrition and exercise. We also offer support group sessions and special events throughout the year.

Nutritional Counseling

Nutritional Counseling, also known as Medical Nutrition Therapy, plays a role in preventing and/or treating many health conditions. Nutritional Counseling is a service provided by select registered dietitians on staff (RD). Our registered dietitians will provide your physician with an assessment of your overall nutrition status and give you education on a personalized course of treatment. A follow-up visit is also generally made at a later date to evaluate your success on the treatment plan.

Medical Nutrition Therapy can be prescribed for individuals experiencing a number of diseases and conditions, including, but not limited to:

  • Gall Bladder Disease
  • Gastro-Intestinal Diseases
  • Heart Disease
  • Hypertension
  • Hypoglycemia
  • Kidney Disease
