What Dietetic treatments are usually covered?
Dietitians offer a broad range of services to support people in managing their nutritional requirements such as medical nutrition therapy which involves working with patients to assess their health and nutritional needs and to assist them to manage their medical condition and symptoms via the use of a specifically tailored diet.
There are a wide range of triggers that may lead to a person benefiting from a telehealth appointment with a dietitian. Some typical reasons why someone might be referred, or choose to see a dietitian include: A newly diagnosed chronic disease or signs that a chronic illness is not being managed, significant weight change, recent poor food intake, poor appetite, or difficulty preparing or eating food or simply periodic reviews of medical nutrition therapy.
It is important that you confirm with your therapist which treatments they provide.
