Telehealth Diabetes Dietitian
Hailey Crean Nutrition, LLC is a telehealth practice that specializes in virtual nutrition counseling for diabetes and cardiometabolic health. It was founded based on the idea that evidence-based diabetes and nutrition education should be more convenient and accessible to help you reach your goals.
We specialize in using secure HIPAA compliant telehealth to allow for greater access and convenience while helping you set gradual and sustainable lifestyle changes that put you on the path to better health.
Diabetes Self Management Education and Support
The Virtual Diabetes Education Program at Hailey Crean Nutrition is accredited by ADCES and meets the National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support. These standards are revised every five years to ensure up-to-date evidence-based education.
This education will help you make informed choices to help manage your diabetes. The more knowledge you have about your condition, the more empowered you feel to make positive changes.
We focus on the seven self-care behaviors that help with diabetes management. These behaviors are:
- Healthy eating
- Being active
- Healthy coping
- Taking medications
- Reducing risk
Together, these seven self-care behaviors reduce the risk for long-term diabetes complications.
Improve Your Health with DSMES
Patients who participate in DSMES classes show improved health outcomes. Evidence from randomized clinical trials and observational studies suggests that DSME may reduce blood pressure, A1C levels, and cholesterol. These are all important markers for diabetes and help reduce the risk of diabetes-related complications.
DSMES has also shown improvements in quality of life, eating habits, and diabetes complication risks. Some participants need fewer hospitalizations related to their diabetes. This, in turn, reduces healthcare costs and improves the quality of life of patients struggling with the symptoms of diabetes.
Online Diabetes Support Group
In addition to our DSMES classes and individual meetings, we offer free monthly diabetes peer support groups. Our online peer support group discusses relevant health topics and offers support as you work on diabetes self-management goals. If you live in Massachusetts and want to connect with others living with diabetes we hope you will join us for an upcoming peer support group.
Joining a diabetes support group can help reduce feelings of isolation as you manage diabetes. Peer support groups, you can allow you to share challenges and successes of managing diabetes as well as connect with others going through the same stage of life with diabetes.
