What patients are saying . . .
"I've resisted nutrition counseling in the past because I didn't want to be judged, talked at, or talked to in a condescending tone. Elle talked with me like I mattered. And I knew she cared. We could all use a coach like Elle."
"I have long awaited sound and accurate nutritional counseling to manage kidney stones. Elle quickly and expertly assessed my nutritional condition and requirements. Elle answered my many questions and provided detailed follow-up documentation and supportive recommendations. I find her service to Greater Boston Urology INVALUABLE."
What is medical nutrition therapy?
Medical nutrition therapy (MNT) involves in-depth individualized nutrition assessment, nutritional therapy, and counseling for the purpose of disease management. For many conditions, dietary changes are often first-line treatments. That said, navigating dietary changes can often be equal parts overwhelming and confusing.
A registered dietitian has the knowledge and skills to help patients understand and implement changes to their diets—changes that often help decrease symptoms or severity and improve the patient's overall quality of life.
At GBU, our registered dietitian, Elle Wittneben, can provide counseling services for many urologic/ urogynecologic conditions, including the following:
Nutrition services can also help patients with the following:
- Diabetes (Pre-Diabetes, Type 1, Type 2)
- General nutrition
- Heart disease and related conditions (high cholesterol, high triglycerides, hypertension)
- Weight management (underweight, overweight, obesity)
You can choose either telehealth visits or in-person appointments in our Dedham Care Center.
