Health professionals agree that nutrition services are one of the first treatments that individuals should receive to improve conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and hypertension.

Many registered dietitians work in the treatment and prevention of disease by providing medical nutrition therapy. The RD often acts as part of a medical team, in various practice settings, such as hospitals, physician offices, private practice and other health care facilities.
Medical nutrition therapy is covered by a variety of insurance plans.

Together with a registered dietitian, you will set nutrition goals to improve your health.

Medical nutrition therapy provided by an RD includes:

-Review of your eating habits and lifestyle.
-Thorough assessment of your nutritional status.
-Personalized nutrition treatment plan.
