At Mills-Peninsula, registered dietitians (RD) provide medical nutrition therapy to help you better understand the connection between eating and diabetes management. Many of our RDs who serve patients with diabetes are also certified diabetes educators (CDEs).
Medical nutrition therapy helps you understand how what you eat and drink drives blood glucose level changes. If you have type 1 or type 2 diabetes, you’ll learn the variety of ways the body processes glucose, and how that will change through your life stages. Through the therapy, you can also learn how to adapt your food preferences and family eating habits.
Medical nutrition therapy can be helpful if you have other conditions such as Crohn's Disease, gluten intolerance and kidney disease.
