Promoting Better Overall Health
Your diet and weight can impact your blood disorder symptoms, and affect your treatment options. At Indiana Hemophilia and Thrombosis Center (IHTC), our registered dietitian helps you learn what you need to know to live a healthy life with your condition.
Your IHTC dietitian works with you to develop a diet suited to your nutritional needs and condition. We help you set reasonable goals for nutrition and weight, and then support you as you learn to manage your meals to promote better health.
Having a blood disorder makes nutrition and weight even more important. Being at a healthy weight can make your medication more effective and protect your joints. For many people, changing diet and losing weight can be difficult. The IHTC dietitian offers one-on-one counseling to help you make new habits stick.
Our registered dietitian helps patients learn about meal planning and healthy food choices. We also provide information on how different foods and herbal remedies may interact with your blood disorder medications. With IHTC, you’re supported and equipped to make healthy choices for yourself and your family.
