Intravenous (IV) therapy involves administering fluids, nutrients, or medications right into the vein, usually in the arm. Because it bypasses the digestive system, IV therapy allows for the quick delivery of fluids and other substances into your body for hydration and health.
It also allows your health care provider to give higher amounts of fluid, nutrients, or medications that you can’t take or tolerate by mouth. IV therapy also ensures your body, organs, and tissues get exactly what it needs without having concerns of malabsorption.
The team at my My NP determines who needs IV therapy after a consultation. They take a holistic approach to care, focusing on your whole-body health, not just your symptoms or disease.
They may recommend IV therapy if you’re dehydrated and need fluids quickly or you need medication you can’t take by mouth. You may also need IV therapy if you’re nutrient deficient.
