Medical Nutrition Therapy

Medical Nutrition Therapy

Medical nutrition therapy is regarded as an evidence-based treatment meant for specific medical conditions. It is a life-changing nutritional treatment that has been proven to be effective for treating many chronic conditions like diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, gastrointestinal conditions, immunocompromised disorders, certain cancers, pediatric diseases, pulmonary diseases, and women’s health. A few studies have also indicated that medical nutrition therapy is effective in promoting weight loss. Medical nutrition therapy reduces the risk of the existing medical condition in the patient and lowers the risk of new complications. 

At UMMC, we have specially trained Registered Dieticians who counsel patients on behavioral and lifestyle changes that impact the long-term eating habits and health. Medical nutrition therapy is an individualized approach, and the dietician plans the nutritional interventions along with the patients. The first step involves a comprehensive nutrition assessment which the dietician performs for nutrition diagnosis. Based on the patient's information, the dietician develops a nutrition intervention and implements it by using evidence-based guidelines. Finally, the person’s progress is monitored over subsequent visits. Our dieticians also educate the patients on food shopping and meal preparation. They help the patients by developing realistic and manageable exercise habits.
