Nutrition services educate patients on the role food plays in managing disease and improving health.

At AdvantageCare Physicians, registered dieticians help patients select and prepare foods that provide the nutrients our bodies need. Nutritional counseling begins with personal assessments and conversations about favorite foods and eating habits. Our dieticians use this information to develop personalized nutrition plans to promote healthy choices and lifestyle changes. By following a proper diet, patients can eliminate or reduce many daily discomforts, including:

  • Constipation
  • Fatigue
  • Heartburn or acid reflux
  • Weight gain
  • Muscle and joint pain
  • Sleeping difficulties
  • Stomach cramps

Patients should see a nutritionist if they have any of the symptoms listed above. In addition, nutritionists can help patients with the following conditions:

  • New allergies
  • Body weight not responding to diet or exercise
  • Dramatic rising and falling hunger levels
  • High cholesterol
  • Eating disorder
