medical nutrition therapy



Nutritional counseling and drug prescriptions provided to patients with type 2 diabetes by dietitians or other nutritional specialists.

Patient care

The goal of MNT is to maintain blood glucose and lipid levels and blood pressure readings within normal limits. Unlike more restrictive diet plans, MNT allows the patient to eat a regular diet (including sugar), which enhances compliance, as long as carbohydrate intake is consistent each day. Consistent carbohydrate intake helps the provider and patient regulate insulin doses.
