Nutrition Services

 


Wouldn’t it be nice to have a one-on-one session with a medical provider to learn what you can do to improve your overall health or the health of a loved one?  Proper nutrition can be confusing and sometimes we need help developing our plan to achieve good health.

Medical Nutrition Therapy is available by appointment at the Calloway County Health Department.  Medical Nutrition Therapy is provided by a registered dietitian-a health professional with nutrition-specific training.

Medical Nutrition Therapy is comprised of an assessment of your current nutritional health status and provision of individualized diet and activity plans.  Medical Nutrition Therapy is the development of a nutritional treatment plan based on a detailed assessment of a person’s medical psychosocial and dietary history.  It is used to treat an illness or condition or as a means to delay disease or complications from disease.
