Total Parenteral Nutrition

Some medical conditions can make it difficult to get the nutrition you need through regular digestion alone. Cancers, colitis and other ailments can make eating and digesting painful or hard on the body. At Chemique Pharmaceuticals Inc., we understand the situation this puts people in—you need to eat, but the discomfort that comes with digestion can be devastating. It’s why we offer Custom Compounded Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN) at our facility in Whittier, CA.

What is Total Parenteral Nutrition?

Total Parenteral Nutrition is an intravenous method of feeding, where fluids are given into a vein to provide most of the nutrients the body needs. This process bypasses digestion altogether, so the body is able to get the essential vitamins and nutrients it needs without the arduous process of breaking down food. Individuals using TPN to get nutrition commonly suffer from chronic intestinal conditions or other digestive diseases that hinder the natural process of breaking down food and absorbing nutrients.

The Total Parenteral Nutrition Procedure

As part of a Total Parenteral Nutrition procedure, patients receive an IV that contains important vitamins and nutrients the body needs for wellness. It’s very similar to receiving any other intravenous treatment.

We offer TPN at our facility in Whittier, CA or at your home. An experienced technician will administer the IV and get you started on the treatment in a comfortable position. The fluids you’ll receive include electrolytes, sugars, amino acids, vitamins, minerals and lipids—everything you need to stay healthy.

The Benefits of Total Parenteral Nutrition

For individuals who can’t absorb nutrients through traditional means, TPN is an essential procedure that helps support the body.

  • Avoid the pain or discomfort that comes with limited digestion
  • Ensure the body gets a completely balanced range of vitamins and nutrients
  • Replenish energy, strength and hydration to healthy levels
  • More affordable than specialty medications to aid in digestion
