What is medical nutrition?
Nutrients play a vital role in health and disease. In times of good health we usually obtain a balanced and adequate amount of nutrients directly from our diet.
However in some situations, for example when suffering from a medical condition such as cancer, a patient may not be able to eat normally or may require more of a certain type of nutrient.
Medical nutrition are specialised foods designed to meet the changed dietary needs of patients and should always be used under the supervision of a healthcare professional.
The composition of medical nutrition products is based on extensive scientific and clinical research, and in many cases its use is recommended in international and professional guidelines.
Medical nutrition can be an integral part of the management of acute, short-term diseases, as well as playing a key role in supporting patients for extended periods of time, in some cases for a lifetime.
Medical nutrition is not intended to replace the treatment of disease but rather complement traditional drug therapies. All Nutricia products should always be used under the supervision of a healthcare professional.
