244. Diet and Dermatology: What Is the Role for Medical Nutrition Therapy?

Sunday, October 21
3:30 PM - 5:00 PM
CE: 1.5

Session Level 2 - Intermediate

Medical nutrition therapy (MNT) is a beneficial adjunct treatment to modern dermatology among some patients with chronic skin disease. Lifestyle interventions, including diet and physical activity, may improve some skin diseases and reduce risk for co-morbid chronic disease. Recently, the number of studies investigating the relationship between diet and skin has increased. However, several questions and concerns remain. This session will update and inform attendees on the research literature examining the role of medical nutrition therapy in aggravating, preventing, and treating two relatively common skin diseases: acne and psoriasis. The information presented in this session will help dietetic professionals understand the existing evidence, including the limitations and gaps in the literature, and disseminate key findings that promote patient wellness.
