A Touch of Enlightenment for your Life
Clinical Nutrition Therapy (CNT) is a therapeutic approach to treating medical conditions and their associated symptoms via the use of a specifically tailored diet devised and monitored by a medical registered dietitian. In other words, it is dietary modification for conditions or diseases that respond to nutrition intervention. CNT aims to keep a healthy energy balance in patients, as well as providing sufficient amounts other nutrients such as protein, vitamins, and minerals. The diet is based upon the patient's medical record, physical examination, functional examination and dietary history.
