Medical Nutrition: Health Starts With Nutrition
We’ve been at the forefront of developing and providing high-quality medical nutrition, also called clinical nutrition. Our dedication is based on extensive research, years of experience, and a deep commitment to our patients.
Innovation and efficiency help us make high-quality nutrition available to an ever-growing number of people. We’re constantly in touch with medical nutrition associations, and we incorporate the latest medical and scientific insights into product development and concepts.
Malnutrition: a global issue
Malnutrition can affect everyone, including:
- 1 in 3 patients in care homes
- 1 in 3 older people living independently
- 1 in 4 patients in hospitals
- 1 in 3 cancer patients
Oncology, intensive care, nephrology, surgery, pediatrics, geriatrics, and nursing: malnutrition is relevant in numerous medical fields and poses a significant challenge in hospital and nursing environments. Patients who are already debilitated or ill are at increased risk of malnutrition, and the effects can be severe, leading to longer hospital stays, delayed recovery processes, and increased complication rates.
Medical nutrition: more than just food
We offer optimal solutions for both enteral and parenteral nutrition that meet the highest quality standards so that healthcare professionals can make the right medical nutrition decision according to the patient’s individual needs, medical diagnosis, and treatment goals.
325 units of Fresubin clinical nutrition are consumed every minute worldwide.
