Diabetes & Nutrition
Whether you're trying to manage diabetes, simply reduce the salt or fat in your diet, or safely lose the weight you gained during pregnancy, the diabetes educators and registered dietitians at any one of Samaritan Health Services’ five hospitals can help.
The Diabetes Education and Nutrition Services department's compassionate and caring staff teach classes and offer individualized appointments to help you take control of your diet and/or manage your diabetes.
