NUTRITION & DIABETES EDUCATION
Amoskeag Health provides individualized Nutrition consultations offered by a Licensed Dietitian/ Nutritionist (LDN) including nutritional support and guidance for diabetes management, metabolic syndrome, weight loss, and prenatal nutrition (nutrition during pregnancy). We also support prenatal and post-partum lactation support offered by a Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC).
Each area of care helps patients identify their unique needs and then create an individualized wellness approach using both diet and lifestyle modifications to support positive nutrition experiences and healthy outcomes.
We also offer prediabetes and diabetes education and management with a Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialist and a Nutritionist. These healthcare professionals can explain the diagnosis, blood glucose monitoring and targets, causes of high and low blood glucose levels, meal planning, exercise and weight management, medication options, and how to reduce the risk of complications.
