If you are under the care of a physician, it is important to contact them and let them know you are under the care of a registered dietitian and make them aware of any dietary changes you are making including the addition of nutritional supplements. Medical Nutritional Therapy may be a beneficial adjunct to medical care, and it may also alter your need for medication, so it is important that you always keep your physician informed of changes in your nutritional program.
