What is Medical Nutrition Therapy?
Medical nutrition therapy includes an in-depth nutritional assessment followed by appropriate therapy and counseling by a registered dietitian. This is an important component to a patient’s overall medical care. The dietitian will develop a nutrition plan, and make sure the patient is in compliance with his/her therapeutic diet.

Benefits of medical nutrition therapy include:
Optimization of nutritional status
Prevention or minimization of specific nutritional deficiencies
Implementation of a healthy weight loss or weight gain program
Maximization of medical treatments
Minimization of health care costs

Any patient receiving home health through Sentara Home Care Services (i.e. skilled nursing, rehabilitative therapies or respiratory services) qualifies for medical nutrition therapy, as well as any diabetic patients covered by Medicare.

For more information on medical nutrition therapy offered by Sentara Home Care Services, call (757) 553-3000 or (800) HOMECARE.
