At Gastroenterology Atlanta, we emphasize an integrated, patient-centered, “food as medicine” approach to nutrition. This means your nutrition care is focused on you and your unique lifestyle, preferences, medical history and more. Your nutritional counselor will personalize recommendations for lifestyle changes, nutrition related behaviors, supplements when needed, and sustainable specific adjustments to your food choices to promote positive and lasting changes.
Patients with digestive and gastrointestinal issues, pre-diabetes, insulin resistance, diabetes, elevated blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, autoimmune conditions, hypothyroidism, inflammatory conditions such as arthritis or IBD, fibromyalgia, migraines, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, food sensitivities, food allergies, food intolerances, celiac disease, pregnancy, and many more can benefit from seeing an nutritional counselor. Additionally, your counselor can make recommendations to assist in preventing of chronic diseases like cancer or heart disease, and preventing nutrient deficiencies if you prefer to follow a diet without certain foods or food groups.
