What is a Registered Dietitian?

A Registered Dietitian can help with:

If you have been diagnosed with diabetes, NOW WHAT? You may be having a difficult time managing your blood sugars and as a patient of NCFMC you may qualify for counseling sessions with a certified diabetes educator here at our clinic.
If your A1C lab results are 9.0% or greater ask your NCFMC provider to refer you to the DSMES program where we will work together to help improve your health through better management of your diabetes.
We can give you personalized and practical suggestions and provide instructions to help you meet this challenge. Let your educator know if you are interested in joining a Diabetic Support group.
Additional community resources, nutrition counseling, & other diabetes support programming are also available to you at our clinic. Ask your provider for additional information.
