Medical Nutrition Therapy is a therapeutic approach to treating medical conditions and their associated symptoms via the use of a specifically tailored diet devised and monitored by a registered dietitian. The diet is based upon the patient’s medical record, physical examination, functional examination and dietary history.
The role of MNT when administered by a Registered dietitian is to reduce the risk of developing complications in pre-existing conditions such as type 2 diabetes as well as ameliorate the effects of any existing conditions such as high cholesterol. Many medical conditions either develop or are made worse by an improper or unhealthy diet.
