According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), a medical food is defined as a specially formulated product that is intended to meet the distinctive nutritional requirements of individuals with specific medical conditions or diseases. Unlike conventional foods, medical foods are specifically formulated to provide targeted nutrition that cannot be met through a regular diet alone. They are intended for use under medical supervision as part of the overall management of a particular condition or disease.1
Pentec Health understands the role Medical Foods play in the dietary management of certain rare diseases, and we recognize that these conditions present unique challenges that demand specialized care and innovative solutions. That’s why we are committed to providing a comprehensive service for the rare disease community that require Medical Foods as part of the management of their care, which includes navigating the complexity of insurance coverage, product distribution and clinical support.
