Your doctor may refer you to one of our dietitians:
- If you have been diagnosed with a condition such as high blood pressure, diabetes, high blood cholesterol, heart disease, renal disease, acid reflux (heartburn), obesity, or an eating disorder
- If you are unable to meet your nutritional needs by eating and require supplemental parenteral nutrition (TPN) or enteral nutrition (tube feedings)
If you are staying at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and have special dietary preferences such as kosher or vegetarian meals, you may be seen by a diet technician.
In addition, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center patients of the Heart and Vascular Center, Norris Cotton Cancer Center, Solid Organ Transplant Program or the Bariatric Surgery Program, will work with dietitians in those departments.
