Service Description

Some Background: Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) is defined as an evidence-based medical approach to treating certain chronic conditions through the use of an individually-tailored nutrition plan. MNT is provided by a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN). While many people are hesitant to change their diet, Medical Nutrition Therapy is a more comprehensive approach, giving you the counseling and feedback, you need to successfully meet your dietary needs and assist in preventing or treating chronic disease. You may also hear Medical Nutrition Therapy referred to as ‘nutritional counseling.’ Nutritional Therapy (NT) begins with an initial nutrition assessment using client and medical history data, evidence-based guidelines and professional judgment to determine a nutrition diagnosis and intervention. You will define what your goals are for your healthy lifestyle. The first visit usually is 60 to 90 minutes. In follow up visits, you will be monitored and evaluate your progress by reviewing updated labs received from your doctor, medication or health changes, to ensure your goals are being met and your health is optimized. One thing to always keep in mind with NT is that it is not meant to replace a doctor’s recommendation for treatment or medication for your specific health condition(s). It is meant to complement the advice given by other members of your health care team. In fact, many health professionals agree that nutrition services are one of the first treatments that individuals should receive to improve conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and hypertension. Your dietitian/nutritionist will work with you to ensure your treatment plan is safe and effective. Our Consultation includes: 1. The gathering of client medical history 2. Client identifying Nutritional Goals / Healthy Lifestyle 3. Client exam 4. Body analysis 5. Customized nutrition plan
