Medical nutrition therapy appears to benefit patients with prediabetes

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Compared with a usual care program, patients with prediabetes and overweight or obesity experienced significantly decreased HbA1c levels and diabetes risk score through medical nutrition therapy.

“We know that statistic-wise, 86 million Americans aged 20 years or older had prediabetes from 2009 to 2012,” Anna Parker, DCN, MS, RD, CDE, of Anaheim Clinical Trials, told Endocrine Today. “This population is at increased risk for developing type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. At this time, CMS does not cover reimbursement to see a registered dietitian nutritionist in patients with prediabetes, it’s only covered in patients who have diabetes.”
