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
    For more information on No Wasted Lives, please visit nowastedlives.org.

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.

Ask about your nutrition?

Have you or your loved one experiencing any of these?

Ask About Your Nutrition?

If you are a hospitalized adult in the U.S. you are more likely to be malnourished than not. Up to 50% of all hospitalized adults are malnourished according to many research projects.

The present gap and educational opportunity to help people in their lives.

We consult hospital systems to help improve the problems of nutritional diagnosis, Severe Malnutrition and Non-Severe Malnutrition. Helping facilities increase reimbursement revenue through documentation and coding, improving the role of Registered Dietitians by physical assessment with medical nutrition therapy, and for families by helping to understand and know what to do.

My efforts is to the end goal and to be an advocate the improved nutritional status for the underprivileged the undernourished, the underdogs of this world, as well as, did we mention food insecurity.
