Need a little extra help? Registered dietitians provide medical nutrition therapy for a variety of diagnoses, including hyperlipidemia, hypertension, obesity, malnutrition, celiac disease, food allergies, memory loss, kidney disease, weight loss and diabetes.
About Nutrition Services
Our registered dietitians, who are licensed by the State of Minnesota, work with medical staff to provide services that focus on adult disease management, prevention and nutrition wellness. An initial nutrition session is one hour in length with half hour follow-up sessions. At the end of the session you will have a better understanding of how to change nutrition habits and food choices to meet your goals. The dietitian sends a written summary of the education visit and an outline of your dietary goals to your referring physician.

Find out about insurance coverage
It is your responsibility to find out if your insurance company will pay for the dietitian visit. You will need to tell them your referring diagnosis and refer to the registered dietitian visit as Medical Nutrition Therapy when inquiring.
Note: Medicare covers a registered dietitian visit only if the referring diagnosis is diabetes or kidney disease.
