What Are Medical Food Supplements?
Medical foods are supplements used for specific dietary management of a disease or condition. They are often used for improvement in gut health or “leaky gut,” weight loss, bloating and bowel issues, meal replacement, and blood sugar improvement, just to name a few. Like dietary supplements and nutraceuticals, medical foods are composed of combinations of vitamins, minerals, and botanicals, but they’re formulated specifically to manage nutritional deficiencies that affect disease progression. Medical foods differ from a traditional diet plan or, for example, naturally occurring foods recommended by a nutritionist or dietician. Rather, medical food supplements are processed foods (often in the form of a shake or tablet) which are intended to meet specific dietary or nutrition needs. While dietary supplements can be purchased over-the-counter, patients must see a trained medical professional who can supervise their medical foods and manage their care.

Benefits of Medical Food Supplements
Medical foods can help take the guesswork out of meal planning and nutrition for patients with specific dietary needs or diseases. They provide nutritional support to those who have unique needs as a result of varying conditions. In some cases, medical food supplements can help patients lower drug dosages, manage pain, or limit symptoms.
Good Candidates for Medical Food Supplements
There are numerous medical foods that have been developed to help patients with a range of health conditions or diseases. Some examples include:
- Crohn’s disease
- Ulcerative colitis
- Gastroesophageal reflux disease
- Chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction
Candidates for medical food supplements may include patients with these or other conditions who have not found significant relief from traditional medicine. They may also be interested in trying new treatments that would allow them to lower dosages or go without prescription drugs, often to reduce side effects. Medical food supplements are not right for all patients, and can be harmful depending on your specific health needs. For this reason, it is crucial to choose a trustworthy healthcare provider who can monitor your medical food supplements and create a tailored treatment plan. While medical food supplements do not require a prescription, they must be taken with a physician’s supervision.
