Clinical Nutrition Services

Nutrition is recognized as an important part of health maintenance. It plays an important role in the prevention and treatment of heart disease, stroke, cancer, hypertension, diabetes, advanced breathing difficulty, and liver and kidney disease. Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) also plays a significant role in the medical management of diabetes, high risk pregnancies, gastrointestinal diseases, hyperlipidemia, hyperglycemia, and other diseases. MNT is also available for food allergies and intolerances, weight loss or gain, special nutrient needs and consistencies, as well as home tube feeding and parenteral nutrition consultation.

MNT is provided by a Registered and Licensed Dietitian qualified by education, background and expertise to provide nutrition management for normal and therapeutic diets. 

A Registered Dietitian assesses one's nutrition status and tailors nutrition therapy to an individual's eating habits, lifestyle, budget and the nutrient needs required by their diagnosis.
