Medical Nutrition is for people who cannot gain the right nourishment with conventional food. Some cannot eat normally, or need specific nutrients to help them grow or to maintain their strength. Others require special nutrition to alleviate disease symptoms, or delay the progression of a disease. Many people find themselves in this situation at some time in their lives.
The science of medical nutrition is evolving rapidly, and with it the understanding that effective and targeted nutritional intervention is an integral part of successful disease management.
Through a variety of channels; hospitals, care homes, the community and pharmacies, the use of Advanced Medical Nutrition helps to improve clinical outcomes and give patients a greater chance of recovery and independence.
