From Queens, New York, USA:
How does one find a reliable diabetes dietitian?
In your area there is a Dietetic Association. They should be listed in the phone book. A call to their number should give you a good place to start.
If there is an American Diabetes Association Affiliate in your area, they could be very helpful as well in finding a ADA Recognized program which will have a whole team of health care professionals to help you.
Additional comments from Dr. Quick:The American Diabetes Association's website includes Recognized Patient Education Programs, available in a state-by-state listing.
You might also call 1-800-TEAMUP4, the AADE information line, which should be able to give you a listing of nearby dietitians who belong to AADE, and therefore can be assumed to be interested in diabetes.
Of course, your physician may know of several! And if your doctor doesn't, you could call your nearest hospital, and ask the Diabetes Nurse.
