Nutrition and Health
Eat healthy, live better.
At Novant Health, we believe nutrition is a powerful tool for helping you manage your health. Whether you’re trying to live healthier, lose weight, heal faster or are managing diabetes or some other chronic condition, our primary care providers, registered dietitians, nutritionists, nurses and counselors can help you reach your health goals.
Why choose Novant Health?
Novant Health diabetes and nutrition clinics
While the focus at our diabetes and nutrition clinics is helping people manage diabetes and related chronic diseases, they can also help you lose weight, lower your blood pressure or simply eat heathier. You do not need a referral from your doctor for these general nutritional services, which are covered by many health plans. A physician referral is generally required for medical nutrition therapy services for the following conditions:
- Cardiovascular disease and other related comorbidities
- Liver diseases
- Gastrointestinal disorders (Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome, celiac disease, disaccharidase deficiency, etc.)
- Renal diseases
Weight loss services
If you or your primary career provider feel you need more comprehensive help with weight management, you can schedule an appointment at a CoreLife Novant Health clinic.
Our care teams at these clinics use nutrition counseling, fitness training and cognitive behavioral therapy to help you recognize and address obstacles that may have held you back in the past. We can help you determine what costs your health plan will cover, and coordinate with your primary care doctor, specialist or surgeon to ensure you get the help you need whether your goal is to qualify for surgery or improve or reverse a medical condition.
