A Safer Approach to Chronic Illness

Medical foods are designed to nutritionally support specific conditions. Medical foods, which can only be recommended by licensed healthcare professionals, provide specific nutrients in therapeutic levels that aren't typically available through a normal diet to nutritionally manage a specific disease or condition. Medical foods are a special product class that can be an important part of the disease management approach, especially as patients look for a more comprehensive option that avoids the potential serious adverse effects and other safety concerns of many existing pharmaceutical drugs.

Complementary to healthy lifestyle changes. Many leading health organizations recommend healthy lifestyle changes (diet, nutrition, exercise, and stress management) as a primary approach to early signs of disease development in lifestyle-related illnesses, such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Some medical foods are specifically designed to work in concert with lifestyle changesand may offer accompanying program guidelines that include suggestions for eating and exercise.

Is a medical food the right choice for you? Medical foods aren't formulated for just anyone, which is why they're intended for professional supervision to ensure proper use and more successful outcomes. Depending on your existing health conditions and symptoms, there may be a medical food option appropriate for your needs. There are a number of medical foods that help address heart disease, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, digestive disorders, and illnesses characterized by fatigue and pain.
