What is Nutrition Counseling?

Nutrition counseling is often utilized by patients who have chronic diseases that require special nutrition and blood sugar levels. As a patient, you will expect to be in regular meetings with a certified nutrition counselor or nurse. During these meetings, you will discuss healthy lifestyle habits, develop a plan of action for your weight or disease-related goals, create preventive measures for disease risk, and discuss progress over time.

Our team at Bluestem Health is trained and prepared to assist any patient that needs nutrition counseling. They are experts on providing the knowledge and steps needed to help you maintain a healthy lifestyle, no matter your health condition.
