Services At This Location
At UnityPoint Health – Meriter, the health and safety of our patients, communities and team members is at the center of everything we do. Whether you are feeling sick or need routine care like a wellness visit or vaccine, our clinics are ready to provide the best care for you and your family.
Good nutrition is one of the basic building blocks of living a healthy life. Too often, we know what we "should" eat, but have a hard time following through on a daily basis. At Meriter, we believe that you can have a healthy diet and eat delicious foods. We also know that only having strict goals is not the best way to lose weight or improve health. Nutrition plans should be well balanced, incorporate safe, healthy guidelines and be specialized according to the wants and needs of the individual.
Our registered dietitians provide medical nutrition therapy for a wide variety of diseases and conditions, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease treatment and prevention, weight management and digestive health.
Medical nutrition therapy focuses on diet and lifestyle changes that can prevent or reduce your health risks. Working together as a team, you and your dietitian will develop a plan tailored to your nutritional and medical needs. Your dietitian will act as your guide down the path to nutritional wellness and improved health and quality of life.
During a meeting with a Registered Dietitian, you can expect to:
- Receive guidance in adopting a healthy eating plan to manage a specific health issue
- Develop a plan and set attainable goals that fit into your lifestyle
- Learn strategies to manage weight, as well as, learn the basics of a healthy diet to promote health and prevent disease
