Dietitian Support for Diabetes

If you are at risk of developing, or suffer from diabetes, a registered dietitian specializing in diabetes nutrition can help you lower your risk and manage the disease before before it leads to additional health conditions. When you join our diabetes management program, you'll work one-on-one with a dietitian and design a personalized plan to treat your diabetes with nutrition and manage your symptoms.

Join our Diabetes Management Program for Personalized Support

Our dietitians specialize in diabetes nutrition and can help you:

  • Manage your condition. A dietitian can help you create a place to manage your Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, Gestational Diabetes, or Pre-diabetes.
  • Decrease your risk. Whether you’re at risk for diabetes or just have a family member with the disease, healthy eating and lifestyle habits can decrease your chances of developing the disease.
  • Navigate the best foods. Proper nutrition is key to diabetes management, but knowing which foods are best can be confusing. A diabetes dietitian can design a personalized nutrition plan based on your individual needs.
  • Learn to count carbs. Many people with diabetes count carbs to help control their blood sugar. If you need to count carbs, your dietitian can teach you how.
  • Prevent complications from diabetes. When not managed properly, diabetes can lead to serious complications with the heart, nerves, skin, eyes, and kidneys. A dietitian can help you control your blood sugar and minimize your risk.
  • Improve your quality of life. Besides helping you manage diabetes, developing healthy eating habits can improve your overall health and quality of life.

Why Work with a Registered Dietitian Diabetes Nutritionist?

Our dietitians are clinically trained to help you manage your diabetes with nutrition. If you are pre-diabetic, or at risk for developing diabetes, they will help you lower your risk by creating a personal plan based on your individual dietary needs, food preferences, lifestyle habits, and level of physical activity. Your personal dietitian will help you sift through the confusing and, often overwhelming, nutrition noise to find out what's best for your unique situation. Plus, they're available on your schedule via telehealth.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know this program will work for me?

Our Diabetes Management Program is led by registered dietitians who are clinically trained in medical nutrition therapy to treat all conditions — including diabetes — with nutrition. Unlike many "one-size-fits-all" programs, we take a personalized approach to understand who you are and what you're looking to accomplish, then we develop a plan just for you.

We also work on your schedule. Whether you are available to meet once a week or once a month, your personal dietitian can help develop a plan that's right for you.

What kinds of diabetes-related conditions does Foodsmart support?

Unlike many programs, we're not focused on quick fixes or a one-size-fits-all approach. Our primary difference is you!

Whether you are struggling with obesity, need help managing high blood-sugar levels, or want to learn how to count carbs and follow a healthier diet, a Foodsmart dietitian can help. When you meet with your personal dietitian, they will assess your individual case, symptoms, lifestyle, and goals, then create a custom nutrition plan to help you manage your diabetes or reduce your risk.

How long is the Diabetes Management Program?

The Diabetes Management Program can be completed in as little as 8-10 weeks, but the length of the program depends entirely on your goals and the plan you develop with your dietitian. When you meet with your dietitian, they will will work with you to adapt the program to your needs based on your health history, the symptoms you are managing, and how you're progressing toward your goals over the course of the program.

How often do I meet with my dietitian?

For most members, we recommend a visit every two weeks, though you are welcome to meet more or less frequently. This cadence will give enough time to make progress and have meaningful updates. If you need support in between visits, you may always message your dietitian.
