PRE-DIABETES

Prediabetes is a serious health condition where blood sugar levels are higher than normal, but not high enough yet to be diagnosed as Type 2 diabetes. One in three Americans have pre-diabetes, but only about 14% are aware. Working with a dietitian improves health outcomes in pre-diabetes, and slows its progression to Type 2 diabetes. A dietitian will help you make diet and lifestyle changes through goal setting, and will teach you how to modify your eating pattern, set a weight loss goal if needed, and will discuss exercise and physical activity.

PCOS

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome affects approximately 10% of women in the US, and since insulin resistance is a key component, it is seen as an endocrine disorder. Lifestyle modification including a healthy eating pattern and exercise is the preferred method to treat PCOS, and can partner with medications if prescribed. A dietitian can show you how to make small changes in your eating habits to improve insulin resistance and help you to meet your weight and health goals.

WEIGHT MANAGEMENT

Some people want to work on weight loss due to health concerns such as high blood pressure, joint problems, or glucose intolerance. Others just want to look and feel their best. Whatever the reason for wanting to lose weight, working with a dietitian will teach you sustainable skills that will help you incorporate a healthy eating pattern into your life, wherever you go. Restrictive diets don’t work, but learning how to enjoy your favorite foods while adding in nutrient dense foods, and making small healthy swaps does.
