What you eat can make a big difference in preventing and treating many diseases and medical conditions, including diabetes. Your diet also affects how you feel physically and mentally.

Coronary heart disease, stroke, some types of cancer, and diabetes all are related to diet, according to the U.S. Surgeon General's Report on Nutrition and Health.

At Catholic Health, our dietitians provide cost-effective nutrition counseling and work with you to create an eating plan that ensures your body gets the right amount of nutrients, protein, carbohydrates, fat and fiber it needs to stay healthy and strong.

Make an Appointment

You need a prescription or a referral from your doctor to make an appointment for nutrition counseling. Your private session will take place in a quiet and confidential atmosphere where a qualified dietitian will answer your questions and provide guidance.

Before you make your appointment:

  • Please be sure your doctor includes your diet order and diagnosis code on your prescription or referral.
  • Check with your health insurance company to find out if it covers nutrition counseling. If your insurance plan does not cover this service, you will be billed.

Find a nutrition counseling location near you and/or call (716) 706-2112 for an appointment.
