Medical Diets

Medical or therapeutic diets are important for the well-being of those with conditions or intolerances. Eating what is best for your body and it’s needs is essential in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle or improve your health overall.

What are Therapeutic Diets?

A therapeutic diet is a meal plan that is formulated to the optimal nutritional needs for someone with a disease, disorder, or intolerance. Therapeutic diets can be ordered by a physician as part of a treatment plan for conditions in order to manage or improve the condition. Therapeutic diets may be ordered by physicians to maintain nutritional status, restore nutritional status, correct nutritional status, weight control, weight gain, control of diabetes, decrease sodium intake, exclude allergies or intolerances, problems with chewing and/or swallowing, and more. Therapeutic diets are not a one size fits all kind of deal. They are curated to fit the nutritional needs of each person.
