Our PeaceHealth St. Joseph Medical Center Nutrition and Diabetes Clinic helps patients discover the best ways to manage their health through diet, nutrition, exercise, lifestyle changes and improved use of diabetes medications, as needed.
Medical Nutrition Therapy Benefits
Medical nutrition therapy and diabetes self-management education are highly effective in the treatment and prevention of many nutrition-related diseases, like diabetes and heart disease.
We understand the challenges diabetics face when making health and lifestyle changes. We are experts in supporting those new to living with diabetes, those interested in the latest in diabetes management, and those overwhelmed or frustrated with managing their diabetes.
Costs and Insurance
Nearly all insurance providers in the state of Washington cover diabetes education, including Medicare and Medicaid. Reimbursement for nutrition counseling may vary with each individual insurance policy.
