Parenteral Nutrition

Parenteral nutrition, also known as intravenous feeding, is a method of getting nutrition into the body through the veins. While it is most commonly referred to as total parenteral nutrition (TPN), some patients need to get only certain types of nutrients intravenously. TPN is mainly given to the patients who lack in taking the nutrition from the food taken. TPN may include a combination of sugar and carbohydrates (for energy), proteins (for muscle strength), lipids (fat), and other sorts like electrolytes, and trace elements. Even though TPN often includes lipids, it will not make you fat. Everyone needs calories, protein, and fat, in addition to other substances, to stay healthy.
