How a Diabetes Dietician Can Help Your Weight Management Journey

Managing weight while living with diabetes can be challenging but crucial for overall health and well-being. Diabetes dietitians approach nutrition on a personalised level, guiding you on your journey to ensure holistic and sustainable lifestyle habits.

The Connection Between Diabetes and Weight Management:
To keep diabetes under control, it is important to manage weight effectively. Diabetes can affect weight due to insulin resistance, which can lead to weight gain, especially around the abdomen. Conversely, excess weight can worsen insulin resistance, making blood sugar regulation more difficult. Maintaining a healthy weight can reduce the need for medication, improve blood sugar levels, and help avoid complications like heart disease and nerve damage.

Personalized Nutrition Plan:
A diabetes dietician can help you with a nutritional plan tailored to your dietary preferences, lifestyle, and other medical needs, such as allergies. This personalised approach makes the process easier to adhere to and integrates changes into your long-term efforts. These plans focus on:

– Balanced Macronutrient Intake: Ensuring meals are balanced with appropriate portions of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats to support overall health and stabilise blood sugar levels.

– Portion Control: Teaching portion control techniques to manage calorie intake and prevent overeating.

– Choosing Healthy Foods: Recommending nutrient-dense foods such as whole grains, lean proteins, fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats that promote satiety and provide essential vitamins and minerals.

Educational Support and Guidance:
Beyond meal planning, diabetes dietitians provide information and support to empower individuals. The focus may be on bringing behavioural changes and realistic goal setting.

– Behavioural Strategies: Assisting patients in adopting sustainable lifestyle changes, such as mindful eating, stress management, and regular physical activity, which are crucial for long-term weight management.

– Goal Setting: Collaborating with patients to set realistic goals and providing strategies to achieve them, whether it’s weight loss, maintenance, or overall health improvement.

Monitoring and Accountability:Regular follow-ups with a diabetes dietician provide opportunities to:
– Monitor Progress: Tracking weight changes, blood sugar levels, and other health markers to evaluate the effectiveness of the nutrition plan.

– Make Adjustments to the Plan: Making necessary adjustments to the nutrition plan based on progress, changes in health status, or individual preferences.

– Get Motivation and Support: Offering encouragement and motivation to stay committed to dietary and lifestyle changes, especially during challenging times.

Integrating Physical Activity in Everyday Life:
Assistance in adding or increasing movement in your daily routine is another crucial aspect of support provided by diabetes dietitians. It is essential to have an active lifestyle to improve insulin sensitivity, support weight management goals, enhance cardiovascular health, boost overall energy levels, and manage stress.

Partnering with a diabetes dietician is instrumental in achieving and maintaining weight management goals while effectively managing diabetes. Their expertise in nutrition, personalised approach to care, and ongoing support empower individuals to make informed choices, adopt healthier habits, and achieve better overall health outcomes. If you’re navigating weight management with diabetes, consulting a diabetes dietitian can provide the guidance and support needed to succeed on your journey towards optimal health.

I would really like to thank Dr Richa and her team and Also (Bhumi), for amazing guidance and continues support and Motivation thru out my diet plan. 1) They have amazing knowledge and they guide accordingly your body type. 2) I thought this 6 months journey of my diet plan will be difficult, because I had mind set that my diet plan will be difficult… But guess what they made my diet plan according my taste and my comfort… which made really easy for me to continue with full motivation. 3) I would really like to thank them , because they also changed my life style …. Because just change in food doesn’t makes your body fit but sleeping on time and workout also matters… I got correct guidance from them . I would really appreciate and thanks Dr Richa and Bhumi for guiding me right and I m really happy that I have connected you guys 🙏🏼

Getting in touch with Mrs. Richa Doshi was the best thing that happened to me in 2023 for diet counselling. I lost almost 7-8 kilos under her supervison. Rubina was really helpfull and co-operative in understanding the lifestyle issues I had which lead to my weight gain. After 6 months of consultation, I am getting my periods regularly without any pills after a year. My constipation problems also got resolved. Highly recommended

Wonderful experience with the team THS, headed by Ms Richa. With proper prescription of healthy and required food, the journey of losing 7 kgs, in around 4 months, became smooth. It was also special because I was never recommended any outside supplements. All done with natural foods. Special thanks to Rubina for prompt reply and guidance.
