As a Certified Diabetes Educator, I understand the complex relationship between managing diabetes and managing a relationship between food and the body.
Disordered eating patterns are very common with individuals who have diabetes. Having the understanding of the complex disease I am able to better help build that healthy relationship you need with food and with your body.
Being an outpatient private practice dietitian, I will work closely with your current diabetes treatment team. I will not recommend medication changes, as that will be done with your medical care provider and diabetes educator within the hospital/clinic structure.
I will be focusing primarily on your eating habits, eating behaviors, exercise behaviors and your relationship around food and your body. Blood sugar control will be monitored while in direct communication with your medical care provider.
