Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT)
Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) is a therapeutic plan that focuses on the prevention and treatment of disease. It has been shown to lessen disease risk, reduce symptoms, and slow disease progression. As a result, many insurance companies and/or medical groups cover MNT. Our office accepts referrals from many of them, including Medicare and medical groups under Medi-cal. Some of the most common diagnoses referred for MNT are:
Diabetes and Kidney Diseases-diabetes mellitus, type I/type II and chronic kidney disease, stage 1-5
Diseases of the Blood-anemia
Diseases of the Circulatory System-coronary atherosclerosis, heart failure, and hypertension
Diseases of the Digestive System-esophageal reflux, food allergies, and gastritis
Endocrine, Nutritional and Metabolic Diseases-gout, hypothyroidism, and mixed hyperlipidemia
No Specific Diagnosis-dietary surveillance and counseling
Pregnancy-excess weight gain, gestational diabetes, and hyperemesis gravidarum
Weight Management-feeding difficulties/mismanagement, obesity, and underweight
