Personal Nutrition Counseling
Nutrition counseling can help individuals manage ongoing nutritional needs and reach healthy lifestyle goals. Nutritional consultations can be offered for patients young to old.
Nutrition counseling is often provided as follow-up care and support for patients who visited the hospital for a procedure or other care. Care may also be provided to people with a need for ongoing assistance in managing nutrition and diet.
Services might be provided for patients with conditions such as dysphagia, pancreatitis, post-cancer treatment, diabetes, celiac disease, chronic kidney disease, food allergy/intolerance and irritable bowel syndrome.
Services may include:
- Complete nutrition assessment
- Follow-up care after feeding tube placement
- Monitoring and follow-up of nutrition status
