As the name suggests, Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) is a comprehensive therapeutic approach to treating or managing medical conditions through a specifically designed diet monitored by a medical practitioner. It considers a patient’s health history, lifestyle conditions and eating patterns and uses the information to rectify the complications caused by a disorder in order to reduce its negative impact on the body.
Today, MNT is widely applied within clinically approved guidelines in the managing of chronic as well as, short term diseases. It is especially recommended for those with conditions such as cancers, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), high cholesterol, Type 1 and 2 Diabetes, eating disorder, food allergies, gastrointestinal disorders, immune system disorders like HIV, genetic metabolic disorders, kidney function, ulcers and even Osteoporosis. In fact, MNT can help everyone live a healthier life. However, this therapy is not meant to replace the treatment of an ailment, but rather complement the prescribed drug therapy.
Medical Nutrition Therapy is recommended by medical practitioners, healthcare professionals, including nutritionists and dieticians.
It is now also being endorsed by many scientific bodies including:
European Society of Cardiology (ESC)
American Heart Association
American Diabetes Association
European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD)
With the help of MNT, Nutriverse aims to address a few critical modern-day healthcare challenges. To this end, it has a range of products formulated to meet specific nutritional requirements and as cleared by clinical tests and medical evaluation. In the hands of healthcare professionals, we believe this will strongly impact healthcare outcomes.
