e-Consult MNT (Medical Nutrition Therapy) by DocRD

Adapted from e-Consult Toolkit website for DocRD is on Workgroup

Access to specialty care continues to be a major challenge for low-income and underserved of our population. In California and with provider shortages and long wait times for appointments, demand continues to outpace the health care system’s ability to meet the needs of California’s growing low-income patient population.

To address this challenge, many health care professionals, health centers, systems, payers and policy makers are turning to electronic consultation and (with a physician referral as example), or e-Consult.

What is e-Consult?

From the workgroup website: An e-consult, is an asynchronous dialogue initiated by a physician or other qualified health care professional seeking a specialist consultant’s expert opinion without a face-to-face patient encounter with the consultant.

What should I expect from my practitioner?

Adapted from the workgroup website: The specialist will report identified as an  inter-professional consultation. E-consults provided by consultative physicians (or health care professional) should include written reports to the patient’s treating/requesting physician/qualified health care professional.

What About Acute Malnutrition?

The State of Acute Malnutrition Website is supported by the No Wasted Lives Coalition, an interagency effort between UNICEF, Action Against Hunger, the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation, the European Commission Directorate-General for Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection (ECHO), the UK Department for International Development (DFID), and World Food Programme (WFP).
To achieve this, the group developed the No Wasted Lives Agenda, a three-point plan seeking to:

  • Make severe acute malnutrition a political and public health priority
  • Discover and disseminate learning about a range of more effective ways to prevent and treat severe acute malnutrition
  • Mobilize more money and maximize effectiveness of current spending

Experts Weigh In On Ketogenic Diet for Diabetes Type 2

DocRD™ as well as other RD’s and RDN’s gave a comprehensive look at Diabetes and Keto Diet. https://www.thediabetescouncil.com/experts-weigh-ketogenic-diet-diabetes-type-2#dr.-michael-todd-greene,-ed.d.,-m.s.,-r.d

Michael Todd Greene, Ed.D., M.S., R.D.N. said, “I would not recommend a ketogenic diet for someone with DM unless they also suffered from epilepsy. The diet is primarily recommended for hard to control epilepsy in children. I would consider suggesting the Consistent Carbohydrate Diet that is outlined by organizations like Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and American Diabetic Association”.

But what does the American Diabetic Association (ADA) say about diets.

The ADA does describe a Meal Plan or Meal Planning and Eating Patterns as important diet information for people with Diabetes on their website: diabetes.org.
