What is Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT)?
MNT is an evidence based medical approach to help treat certain chronic medical conditions through an individualized nutrition process. MNT is provided by a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) to encourage positive changes to an individual’s lifestyle. The goal of MNT is to provide education to patients to help them successfully meet their dietary needs and prevent or treat chronic disease. The process of MNT involves monitoring and evaluating the progress of a patient by reviewing laboratory values, medications, and goals.
There are many advantages to MNT while working with an RDN such as preventing or improving disease (diabetes, kidney disease, hypertension, or heart disease), and increasing activity. The RDN may also correlate with other healthcare professionals to meet the needs of the patient such as a physician, psychiatrist, hematologist, hepatologist, cardiologist, endocrinologist, and more. The RDN will work with the whole healthcare team to ensure treatment plans are effective.
I found Madeline Basler on my insurance plan and with further research Real You Nutrition sounded like a good fit for me. I had issues with high blood sugar readings and my A1C was as high as an 11.0 rather than the recommended <7.0.
Madeline worked with my wife and I to help us understand what different meal choices would help me get my desired results. This education and open discussion about my needs and what would work for me, helped me accomplish my goals. She helped me to reduce my A1C to 5.8 in just a few months, and I was eating smarter.
The open and honest communication, and not forcing me to count calories specifically and eat only what was on a ‘diet’ was the most beneficial. The fact sheets she provided are very useful in helping me eat better and allows my wife to put together tasty and healthy meals.
I already have recommended Madeline to other family members and would do so again. Madeline is extremely approachable, and provides education easy enough for everyone to understand and adopt.
What is Integrative Nutrition Therapy?
Integrative Nutrition Therapy addresses the whole body. It aims to target the root causes of chronic disease and provides interventions in the form of nutrition, movement, stress reduction and mindfulness. Restrictive diets are never the answer.
“I’ve been working with Madeline Basler for almost a year now to help get my type-2 diabetes under control. She’s been there for me not just as a dietician and counselor, but also as a friendly giver of advice and support when things get rough. She’s helped me understand better about what I’ve been putting in my body, and has set me on a path for success.
When I started my sessions with Madeline, my A1C was very high, and with guidance and understanding thanks to her, I’m at the lowest number I’ve been since I was diagnosed almost three years ago.”
