Diabetes is a disease in which the body does not produce or properly use its insulin. People with diabetes have trouble controlling their blood sugar, which can lead to kidney, nerve and eye disease, even death. Medical Nutrition Therapy(MNT) provided by your Registered Dietitian at DietGenics can help you take charge of your diabetes, and along with your doctor’s treatment plan, lead a better quality of life.
Weight Management nutrition counseling based on Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) focuses on behavior, diet, and physical activity as the major areas of goal setting. Your Registered Dietitian will assess how each of these areas are currently contributing to your weight gain or loss and establishes a weight management plan with you. This plan is set in conjunction with a doctor’s treatment plan for any specific medical condition that is needed. This treatment plan is not a “quick fix” or involves any drugs but is targeted towards the long term healthy life.For bariatric patients, Araceli Vázquez has had extensive experience with these treatment plans with over 900 nutritional consultations conducted specifically for these procedures.
