Some of the most serious health conditions – obesity, diabetes, hypertension, and heart disease – can be prevented or managed through simple lifestyle changes and healthier habits. If you would like to improve your health by eating better, the nutrition experts at Tri-City Medical Center are here to help.
Our outpatient medical nutrition therapy program is designed for people living with chronic health conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, or celiac disease. We also consult with pregnant women seeking prenatal care and people who would like counseling for weight management and overall healthy eating habits.
Expert Nutrition Counseling
During your first visit with one of our dietitians, we’ll review your medical history, current eating habits and personal wellness goals. We then develop a personalized nutrition plan that’s right for you. Our goal is to help you make long-term changes in your eating habits and lifestyle, providing encouraging support and advice along the way.
