What is Medical Nutrition Therapy?

Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) is an essential component of comprehensive health care. Individuals with a variety of conditions and illnesses can improve their health and quality of life by receiving medical nutrition therapy. During an MNT intervention, a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist will counsel you regarding behavior and lifestyle changes required to impact your long-term eating habits and promote healthy living.

Medical Nutrition Therapy Includes:

  • Performing a comprehensive nutrition assessment which determines the nutrition diagnosis;
  • Planning and implementing a nutrition intervention using evidence-based nutrition practice guidelines;
  • Monitoring and evaluating an individual’s progress over subsequent visits with the Registered Dietitian Nutritionist.

At SO Nutrition, we can help you manage your medical complications with respect to nutrition.  (MNT complements regular health care visits with your physician–it does not replace your physician’s advice or prescribed medical treatment.)
