Medical Nutrition Therapy in Renal Disease
Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) plays a critical role in the management of renal disease, specifically chronic kidney disease (CKD). A well-designed nutrition plan can help slow the progression of kidney disease, manage complications, and improve the overall health and quality of life for individuals with renal disease.
The objective of Medical Nutrition Therapy in renal disease is to optimize nutritional status, minimize complications, and support kidney function in individuals with CKD.
By incorporating Medical Nutrition Therapy into the comprehensive management of renal disease, healthcare providers can help slow disease progression, manage complications, and improve the overall well-being of individuals with CKD. MNT, along with medical management, is a crucial component of the multidisciplinary approach to renal disease care.
