WHAT IS ENTERAL NUTRITION?
When you aren’t able to get the nutrition you need through conventional methods, your healthcare professional may recommend enteral nutrition therapy. Enteral nutrition therapy relies on consuming a liquid formula (an enteral formula) for nutritional sustenance, greatly reducing the work your digestive system performs when absorbing nutrients. This is often the case for patients with compromised GI systems or digestive dysfunctions.
HOW DO I ADMINISTER ENTERAL NUTRITION?
Enteral nutrition can be administered orally (i.e. drinking the enteral formula), or via use of an enteral feed (tube feeding). Please note that Physicians’ Elemental Diet™ is not intended for tube feeding.
WHAT TYPES OF ENTERAL FORMULAS EXIST?
The primary types of formulas include elemental diets, semi-elemental diets, polymeric (also referred to as “intact” formulas), and specialized. Learn more about each type here.
WHERE CAN I PURCHASE ENTERAL PRODUCTS OR FORMULAS?
Because an enteral formula is being used as your sole source of nutrition, it’s critical to complete the diet under the guidance and supervision of a healthcare practitioner. You can purchase Physicians’ Elemental Diet directly from our website, but we strongly recommend working with your healthcare practitioner throughout the duration of the diet.
