Nutrition Therapy Services

Through careful listening and understanding, our nutrition specialists offer personal nutrition therapy programs to help you overcome illness and get back to your life.

Proper nutrition is one of the keys to managing or preventing many conditions, including diabetes, heart disease, obesity and high blood pressure. Along with other therapies and treatments, the nutrition experts at Centura Health offer medical nutrition therapy as part of a holistic approach to your health care.

Registered dietitian nutritionists (RDNs) can work collaboratively with your wider medical team, providing nutrition information and strategies to help you manage specific diseases, address risk factors and create healthy habits.

What to expect

Your first appointment will last around an hour, giving our team time to ask a variety questions about your health. We’ll review your diet, lifestyle, eating habits and nutritional health with you to create goals, and a nutrition plan to reach them. Follow-up appointments can be scheduled to ensure you’re making progress toward your goals and discuss whether changes to your plan are needed.

Appointments with an RDN can be made once you have a referral from your doctor. Ask your doctor if a referral for medical nutrition therapy is right for you.

If you have private insurance, you’ll need to see if your plan covers medical nutrition therapy. In some cases, it can be covered to help you manage a range of conditions, including heart disease, obesity and diabetes.

If you have Medicare Part B, medical nutrition therapy is covered for diabetes and kidney disease. You could be eligible for up to three hours of nutrition therapy in your first year, and two hours each following year.
