What should I do if I think I might have malnutrition?

A Answers (1)

  • Call your doctor right away if you believe you have malnutrition. (S)he will need to evaluate you and determine if you can be treated in a hospital or as an outpatient (at home and in clinic). You may be given supplements, such as Ensure or Boost, to make sure you are getting enough calories, protein, fats, and carbohydrates that your body needs.
