What to Expect from a Nutrition Consult
The Registered Dietitian sees the patient via a tele-consult and utilizing the intake forms to obtain a food and nutrition history. The RD will review the medical record for height, weight, age, % body fat (if available), the food record results and the results of biochemical as well as other medical tests/procedures, chronic disease. The results of these data are incorporated into a Nutrition Assessment, which is used to derive a Nutrition Diagnosis. The consult typically contains a plan for Nutrition Intervention that incorporates goals which are based on an individualized nutrition prescription and is intended to resolve the nutrition diagnosis. The consult will also contain a description of planned Nutrition Monitoring, Evaluation and Reassessment
an. Follow-ups are planned to address all lifestyle changes and the teaching of the diet prescription that is given after the assessment.

What is Medical Nutrition, or Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT)?
"Very caring and informative. Gave me many suggestions. Most of all, reassured me that even if I don't reach my goal, I have improved my health immensely. Guess most of all she also reassured me I should be happy just being me! She was wonderful!!"
"Ms. Shatter is excellent in her work. She gave me so much helpful information, that I am sure it will help me in my quest for better health and weight management. I recommend her services and I really appreciate every bit of information, advise and the detailed nutritional plan that she prepared for me. I look forward to letting her know how her advises are helping me."

Wellness Visits are short, preventive, health oriented

Telenutrition differs from Telehealth as telenutrition is a comprehensive approach to a problem or nutritional goal as opposed to just answering a question.
