Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) is a nutrition-focused therapeutic approach for the treatment of health conditions such as diabetes, kidney disease, obesity (adult and children), high cholesterol, high blood pressure, malnutrition and more. MNT is also a prerequisite for bariatric candidates to ensure surgery safety, readiness, and success.
Following the Nutrition Care Process, a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RD/RDN) will assess, formulate, and monitor an individualized treatment strategy to help you improve upon pre-existing health conditions.
For Diabetes and Kidney Disease Stage IV, Medicare Part B will cover up to 3 hours of MNT services for the first year, and 2 hours of MNT services thereafter. Telehealth available. Private insurance coverage varies, therefore, please check with your insurance provider.
We also offer one on one and family MNT consultations for (not limited to):
