MENTOR provides broad guidance on the management of metabolic disorders. It should not be relied upon for medical decisions or diet management advice and participants should confer with their medical team regarding specific patient management decisions. Adherence to these recommendations will not ensure beneficial outcome in all affected individuals. Clinical assessments must be made by experienced healthcare professional(s) and should include discussions of therapeutic options with affected individuals and their families. The information, software and services included in or available through MENTOR may include inaccuracies or typographical errors. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, in no event shall Met Ed and/or its suppliers be liable for any damages whatsoever, including damages for loss of use arising out of, or in any way connected with the MENTOR program.
