This approach can also be adopted for the treatment of co-morbidities related to obesity, such as diabetes, hypertension, and cardiovascular conditions. With the increased prevalence of diet-related chronic diseases, the rate of clinical nutrition assessment will gain momentum in countries including the United States.

Based on data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2019, over 28.7 million people, or 8.7% of the U.S. population were diagnosed with diabetes. The management of this chronic disease is multidimensional and comprises various treatment options including clinical nutrition. The surge in the incidence rate of non-communicable diseases, which can lead to prolonged hospitalization and high mortality rates, will thus contribute to the development of clinical nutrition centers across the nation.

Regulatory bodies, however, have introduced strict mandates related to the sale of clinical nutrition products. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration, for example, has more regulations for clinical nutrition products under the DSHEA (Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994) than other items including drugs and conventional foods. This strict regulatory framework related to nutritional products may impede the industry development to some extent.
