To improve quality of life or treat a disorder, patients may need to make changes to their diet. As needed, your doctor may recommend that you see a Mercy dietitian for medical nutrition therapy (MNT). An expertly trained dietitian will assess your nutritional status and make recommendations on how you can achieve your goals through, for example, dietary changes, nutritional counseling and the use of supplements.
Under the guidance of a dietitian, you can learn lifestyle changes to improve to your diet and your health. Access to excellent medical nutrition therapy is one more way your Mercy team helps you meet your health goals, so you can get the most out of your life.
