Also called: Artificial feeding, Artificial hydration and nutrition, Hyperalimentation, Parenteral nutrition, TPN, Tube feeding

Nutritional support is therapy for people who cannot get enough nourishment by eating or drinking. You may need it if you

  • Can't swallow
  • Have problems with your appetite
  • Are severely malnourished
  • Can't absorb nutrients through your digestive system

You receive nutritional support through a needle or catheter placed in your vein or with a feeding tube, which goes into your stomach.
