Our insurance only covers a small part of the (ridiculous) charge for speaking with a nutritionist at our endo visit. The last time Perky Patty (who was all of 21 yrs old) visited with us, the grand sum total of her advice was "Eat your vegetables!" I paid almost $200 for this girl to tell my son to eat his vegetables. Seriously, that's exactly what she told us. Nothing else! Absolutely useless, in my opinion. We've been dealing with d for 8 years, ds's a1c is good--right where they want him, in fact, dh and I are both college educated, neither we nor any of our children are overweight...so what, if anything, is a 20-something yr old nutritionist going to tell me that I don't already know??? I've refused her visit the last two times I've seen the endo and will continue to do so unless someone here can shed some light on why I SHOULD partake of her wisdom. So has a nutritionist ever given you some good advice that you were previously unaware of?
