Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) is nutrition treatment or therapy that has been personalized to the individual.
A registered dietitian works with you to develop a nutrition plan based on your medical history, dietary history, cultural preferences and personal goals.
Medical Nutrition Therapy is used to treat certain illnesses or other conditions or to prevent or delay the onset of a disease or complications of a disease such as diabetes. Managing or preventing other conditions such as heart disease, certain cancers, obesity, or high blood pressure is an important part of diabetes education.
