Medical nutrition therapy

Family smilingHere at the Leesburg Regional Medical Center Wellness Center, we offer one-on-one medical nutrition therapy (MNT) counseling and education with a registered and licensed dietitian to meet patients' individual needs and goals. MNT can be provided for patients with various diagnoses including: diabetes (type 1 and 2), chronic kidney disease, weight loss or gain, gestational diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, cancer, celiac disease, impaired glucose tolerance, and many more.

Currently, Medicare provides 100 percent coverage for patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes and chronic kidney disease. Private insurance coverage varies depending on each patient's plan.

A referral from a physician that includes diagnosis, ICD-9 code, and physician's signature is all that is needed to make an appointment. Please bring any recent labwork, a list of medications and supplements, and blood sugar logs to your appointment.
