Dietitian services by Nutrition Consultants
As Registered Dieticians, Nutrition Consultants are the food and nutrition experts who can translate the science of nutrition into practical solutions for healthy living. They have the background knowledge and expertise to guide our patients to develop a healthy eating plan that works for them.
Insulin pumps are a great tool for many of our Diabetes patients. They allow for patients to manage their Diabetes through a device that delivers insulin and can help diminish or eliminate multiple injections daily. Pump Company links: Animas, Medtronic MiniMed, OmniPod, Tandem Diabetes Care.
Continuous glucose monitoring
CGMS is a new and improving technology that allows a person with diabetes to obtain a blood sugar reading every 5 minutes. A small "filament" is inserted like a needle into designated site and this filament is attached to a tiny external recorder or transmitter. Some pumps have continuous glucose monitoring integrated into them.
CGMS is available at TD&E in two forms :
- Temporary CGM, which we set up at the office, which a patient wears for 3-7 days and records the glucose readings every 5 minutes. The results from this test are downloaded at the end of the allotted days and interpreted by your Physician Extender.
- Continuous monitor, owned by the patient, which is used to obtain "real time" glucose readings on an on-going basis. The technology can be used to detect low and high sugars and help improve diabetes control.
