Medical nutrition therapy (MNT) is nutrition counseling with a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist. MNT helps to treat and slow down chronic kidney disease (CKD).
An MNT session includes your health problems, lab tests, medicines, and personal food choices. Some MNT goals are to:
- Improve blood pressure
- Keep protein intake at a safe level
- Help control blood sugar
Dallas Nephrology Associates offers this service at many of our clinics. Your insurance may cover MNT. Ask your doctor about a referral.
