Nutritional services at Fairview Northland Medical Center

Whether you are recovering from an illness, managing a chronic disease or simply interested in improving your diet, Medical Nutrition Therapy can help. We work with you to develop a balanced eating pattern to fit your lifestyle and health needs.

Medical Nutrition Therapy can help you control:
  • Weight
  • Digestive problems
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • High cholesterol
  • Food allergies
  • Kidney problems
  • Eating disorders

We also provide guidance to those who have special dietary needs such as vegetarians, pregnant moms and athletes.

Getting Started
The first step in the program is to meet with a registered dietician who will develop an individualized nutrition plan to address your health needs and goals. You'll also:
  • Review heart-healthy nutrition guidelines to reduce high cholesterol and high blood pressure
  • Learn about food and drug interactions, how to read food labels and physical activity
  • Discuss coping strategies and skills to work towards your goals
  • Discuss how to expand food choices, increase flexibility with meal planning, modify recipes and make healthier choices when eating away from home
  • Learn how to manage blood sugar levels and create a meal plan for those with diabetes

Insurance and referrals
Many insurance plans cover the cost of nutrition counseling if ordered by a doctor. Please call your insurance carrier to verify coverage, then ask your provider for a referral to a dietician. The nutrition department will call you to schedule an appointment.
