Weight Management & Nutrition Programs

Minnesota Gastroenterology understands the impact and challenges that excess weight can have on your health.  For that reason, we created a serious solution with three medically-monitored weight management programs, which fit the needs of all situations. Whether a patient has 20 or 100 pounds to lose, one of our personalized programs will fit their needs.  Since 2011, we have experienced positive outcomes with patients that have Fatty Liver Disease, Hepatitis C, and GERD.  Weight loss has also been beneficial for patients with high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, sleep apnea and other chronic illnesses.  Weight Management appointments are scheduled at our Saint Paul clinic location and the Life Coach appointments are available at all of our locations.  Use this link to find more detailed information about the Weight Management Programs.

Registered Dietitian

As the need for these highly specialized services has grown, Minnesota Gastroenterology expanded its patient offerings with a Registered Dietitian who sees patients in all of our clinic locations. The goals of our Registered Dietitian and Life Coach are not only to improve patient weight management but to help with disease management and other special dietary and nutritional needs.
