What is medical nutrition therapy?

Medical nutrition therapy (MNT) is an evidence-based nutrition treatment modality provided by a registered dietitian. MNT can be utilized for chronic and acute conditions as well as a prevention measure.

What is a registered dietitian?

A registered dietitian (RD) is a health professional with specialized training in nutrition and wellness. RD’s must complete an education program in the field of nutrition, complete an internship, and pass a national exam. 

What can I expect with MNT?

At your first visit, you can expect your dietitian to ask questions about your current diet and lifestyle and work with you to set short-term and long-term health goals. You will work together to develop a plan to meet those goals. At follow-up visits, you will revisit those health goals and evaluate your progress. Your dietitian will help you work through any challenges you are having throughout the process. 

MNT is a multi-appointment adaptable process that builds on itself as you progress through visits. MNT with an RDs goal is to help the patient learn, build self-efficacy, make positive nutrition and behavior changes, and reach goals.

Please note: Dietitians do not order lab tests or prescribe medications. Please speak with your PCP about these concerns.
