“I had a visit with my doctor last week. Blood work was taken and my numbers (HgA1c) went from a 6.3 to a 6.0.
My doctor was thrilled with that. I told her my nutritionist Steve Della Croce helped me get to this point. The doctor was glad I took her recommendation of consulting with [a Registered Dietitian]. I wasn’t sure if three points was good, but she said that it was terrific and just keep up the diet Steve recommended and it will continue to go down.
I want to thank Steve so much for his help.

When I was told that I had Stage III Chronic Kidney Disease I was devastated. I knew that I faced a life-style changing situation. To start with I would be very limited in what and how much of that I could eat. Everyone diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is strongly advised to work with a Registered Chronic Kidney Disease Dietician. Not every CKD patient requires the same treatment and the dietary specialist can make a personal meal plan that fits your condition and make changes as your condition changes. The problem is that it is very difficult to locate a Registered Dietician, even in a large metropolitan city as
New York City. Most Registered Dietitians work in an institutional environment and very few have private clients or patients. Fortunately, an MD, a Kidney Specialist, working at the New York Methodist Hospital introduced me to a Registered Dietitian who he recommended highly. That is how I met Stephen Della Croce, MS, RD, CDN.
My relationship with my Dietitian helped me relieve so many concerns around my diet. I was able to ask questions about foods that are safe and not safe, and with my specialized diet needs that information is invaluable. We email back and forth, I have sent food records to be reviewed, and eating has become a pleasurable experience again. Knowing that I can be in contact with my Dietitian when I need to has given me much-needed peace of mind. The best part, after following his diet plan my blood work has improved, I am maintaining a healthy weight, and my doctor is very pleased.
If you have a medical condition that requires the assistance of a Registered Dietician, or simply desire weight loss, I can wholeheartedly recommend Stephen Della Croce. Since you will be consulting with him by email, it does not matter where you are located in the world. You will find him knowledgeable, compassionate and well-informed professionally. It is my firm belief that you will be more than satisfied with him.
