Why Patients Should Ask About Dietary and Nutrition Assistance with Our Outpatient Dietician
- Posted on: Jul 15 2019
Northeastern Arizona patients who are interested in working with a team of professionals in Show Low, AZ to develop a proper diet for their bodies are encouraged to schedule a consultation visit with the team at Summit Healthcare Regional Medical Center. Our professionals can provide MNT, or “medical nutrition therapy” for patients who would like to change their eating habits and maximize their overall health and wellness. By working with patients, our health care professionals and registered dietician can identify one’s unique nutritional needs and develop a plan that can improve their health.
What conditions can be improved with nutritional assistance?
Sometimes, patients come to our practice to discuss their dietary needs after being diagnosed with a medical condition that is impacted by nutrition. Some of the following medical conditions may be improved by following a specific diet:
- Anorexia Nervosa
- Bulimia Nervosa
- Celiac Disease
- Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)
- Heart Disease
- Inflammatory Bowel Disease
- Irritable Bowel Disease
- Lactose Intolerance
Why might I choose medical nutrition therapy?
Eating right and exercising are two lifestyle changes that patients can make that may improve their overall health and wellness. A large percentage of Americans are considered overweight, and with weight loss and improved nutrition, many medical conditions can be improved or even eliminated. The team at Summit Healthcare Regional Medical Center encourages patients to learn about their body and build a better relationship with the foods they eat so they can extend their lifespan, feel healthier and more active, and manage certain conditions that are impacted by diet. By working with a medical professional to discuss dietary and nutritional assistance, many patients are able to have someone that will hold them accountable and ensure they are on the right track for treatment. Our dietician, Becky Moffat, RD, CDE, can assist new and existing patients with planning a proper diet and lifestyle regimen for better health.
