It’s not a secret that the things that we eat play a major role in our health. Health and nutrition go hand in hand with overall wellness, and each individual patient has different dietary needs and goals. And sometimes, these needs require professional support.

Our registered dietitian, Annabelle McCoy, brings the scientific knowledge of food and nutrition that’s needed to provide patients with practical and impartial dietary advice. Annabelle can provide education, equipment training, dietary treatment, and prevention advice for many diet-related health issues such as coronary heart disease and diabetes. We also welcome groups of patients as well as individuals. If you’re ready for professional dietary treatment or advice, schedule an appointment with us today.

Premier Medical Associates, an affiliate of the Allegheny Health Network, is the largest multi-specialty physician practice in the Greater Pittsburgh area. Our nutrition services are available by appointment at our One Monroeville Center office.

FAQs on Nutrition Services:

How Can A Nutritionist Help Me?

Our nutritionist, Annabelle McCoy, can provide guidance for many of the following health needs:

  • Deficiencies and weight control concerns, such as anemia and thyroid disorders.
  • Allergies or food sensitivities, which may require a meal plan for balanced nutrition.
  • Lipid and digestive disorders, such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and Crohn’s disease.

We always advise receiving guidance from a nutritionist as a supplement to your medical treatment plan for any of these conditions.

Do You Offer Special Services For People With Diabetes?

Yes! Our nutritionist can offer advice to people with type 1, type 2 and gestational diabetes. We will work with you on creating an appropriate diabetic health plan to manage blood sugar. Annabelle can also council those who are pre-diabetic on preventing the condition from developing any further. Additionally, Annabelle can provide device training to diabetic patients, including insulin pump training and continuous glucose monitoring.

Can A Dietitian Help Me With Weight Loss?

While the nutrition services at Premier Medical are not a diet plan or weight loss program, our nutritionist does provide practical, impartial advice on how to create a genuinely healthy meal plan based on your individual needs. If weight management is part of a healthy goal for you, or weight control is a health concern as part of an underlying condition, we can certainly factor those goals into your plan.
