At Clinica Sierra Vista, our registered dietitians provide Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) services to patients at our health centers, who are referred to the program by their physician. MNT involves the assessment of nutritional status and the provision of diet, counseling, and/or specialized nutrition therapies to treat an illness or condition. MNT has been integrated into the treatment guidelines for a number of diseases, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus, hypertension and obesity.
