Premier Health offers outpatient nutrition counseling and diet education to help you manage the symptoms of a wide range of chronic diseases.
Also known as medical nutrition therapy, this counseling is provided by licensed registered dietitians, with a required referral from your health care provider.
Benefits Of Nutrition Counseling
Through Premier Health nutrition counseling, you and your dietitian will work together to create an eating plan to meet your health goals, fit your lifestyle, and help you control the symptoms of your medical condition.
Nutrition counseling helps you:
- Better understand and manage your medical condition
- Develop a healthy eating plan and learn how to shop wisely for nutritious foods
- Feel better and lessen the impact of your medical condition on your life
- Eliminate barriers, stress, and beliefs that may keep you from maintaining a diet that’s good for your health
Many insurance plans cover medical nutrition therapy with a licensed registered dietitian. Check to make sure your insurance plan does, and if your insurance requires prior authorization. Payment plans are available if you aren’t covered.
Talk with your doctor about whether a referral for outpatient nutrition counseling and diet education could help you in treating your chronic medical condition and improving your well-being and quality of life.
