Proper nutrition is essential to leading a healthy life. In addition to looking better, healthy eating can help you feel and function better as well. At Banner Baywood, we offer comprehensive nutrition counseling and support services to help patients better understand the impact a healthy diet plays on their overall health while arming them with the knowledge to adopt and maintain healthy eating habits.
While many people can benefit from nutrition counseling, individuals diagnosed and living with various weight and medical issues may reap the greatest rewards. Some of the most common reasons patients turn to the Outpatient Services center at Banner Baywood for nutrition services include support for such conditions as:
- High Cholesterol
- Renal Insufficiency
Our nutrition counseling services are led by a registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator. These health care professionals take into account the individual dietary needs and requirements of each patient to help create customized eating plans.
To ensure long-term success and benefit from these nutrition support services, our dietitians and educators also provide helpful shopping tips that support healthy eating, recipe and menu recommendations for preparing healthy meals at home, and suggestions for making smart selections at restaurants.
One-on-one nutrition consultations with our registered dietitians/certified diabetes educators require physician referral. Speak with your physician about the benefits of nutrition counseling and request a referral to Banner Baywood Medical Center’s outpatient nutrition services program.
Please call (480) 684-7500 to schedule nutrition counseling.
