I would like to learn more about a diabetic diet, since I have a family member who has diabetes. Is there a way for me to meet with a dietitian or a good resource that you would recommend for this?

Nutrition counseling services are available at several BJC facilities including:

BJC dietitians also can be located by calling Help For Your Health at 314.747.7234.

If you live outside the BJC HealthCare service area, you can find a nearby registered dietitian at the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics website.

If you decide to schedule a visit, be aware that there may be a fee for the service. Some hospitals also have diabetes support groups that you might find helpful. These groups cover a wide range of topics. The American Diabetes Association is also an excellent resource.
