Same Nutrition, Different Means
Home parenteral and enteral nutrition (HPEN) is the intake of nutrition either through a vein or directly into the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Parenteral nutrition refers to the intravenous intake of a solution containing proteins, sugars, fats, and vitamins and minerals. Enteral nutrition refers to the intake of nutrition through a tube directly to your stomach or small intestine.

Life With HPEN

You don’t have to put your life on hold because of HPEN. ThriveRx is here to help you and your loved ones at every step of your nutrition support journey, fostering independence with education and advocacy.

Many consumers can reduce their need for HPEN, while others can completely wean. ThriveRx is dedicated to helping you reduce your HPEN dependency.

You are not alone. ThriveRx’s extensive support network comprises clinicians, nurses, and advocates who are either caregivers or on HPEN themselves. We offer a wealth of resources to help you and your family connect with others on nutrition support, learn more about your therapy, and improve you and your family’s quality of life.
