Living with Diabetes

Maddison Saalinger

Maddison Saalinger, MS, RD, LDN, is a registered and licensed dietitian at the Diabetes Research Institute, University of Miami, Miller School of Medicine. She earned her Bachelor of Science at UM and continued her education in clinical nutrition and dietetics with a Master’s Degree from New York University.

Maddison was inspired to pursue this profession because she loves empowering patients to feel confident with their nutrition choices and motivated to reach their goals. She excels at helping patients select better foods, read nutrition labels, use measuring tools, or simply understand how certain foods can affect the body differently. She has worked with patients dealing with diabetes and cystic fibrosis, as well as others who just want to live a healthier lifestyle. She is also a certified yoga instructor.
