Nutritional assesment

M Lozano, J M Ramada, J Peiró, A Frígola, M J Esteve
Nutritional research in elderly disabled is difficult in noninstitutionalized people. The dietary intake of a noninstitutionalized disabled population of the eastern region of Spain was evaluated to detect possible nutritional deviations. A total of 329 participants aged 65 and over were recruited. Most participants were overweight. Carbohydrates did not reach 50% of total Kcal/day. Insufficient micronutrient intakes and high consumption of simple carbohydrates and saturated fats (SFA) were found. A decreasing trend of water intake (p < ...

BACKGROUND: While some obese children are metabolically healthy (MHO), some have additional health problems, such as hypertension, dyslipidemia, insulin resistance, and hepatosteatosis, which increase mortality and morbidity related to cardiovascular diseases (CVD) during adulthood. These children are metabolically unhealthy obese (MUO) children. In this study we assessed the factors that affect metabolic health in obesity and the clinical and laboratory findings that distinguish between MHO and MUO children...

BACKGROUND: Malnutrition at hospitals is responsible for high morbidity and mortality** rates. This study aims at describing the results of the implementation of a hospital nutrition program with an eventual deployment of nutritional support. METHODS: Observational, prospective, single-centre design. All adult patients consecutively admited in our hospital during the period January 2012-September 2013 were registered. The implementation of the nutrion program consisted of: nutritional assessment at admitance; examination of the patient with indications for starting nutritional support; implementation of nutritional support; monitoring and follow-up...

BACKGROUND: At present, scientific consensus exists on the multifactorial etiopatogenia of obesity. Both professionals and researchers agree that treatment must also have a multifactorial approach, including diet, physical activity, pharmacology and/or surgical treatment. These two last ones should be reserved for those cases of morbid obesities or in case of failure of the previous ones. The aim of the PRONAF study is to determine what type of exercise combined with caloric restriction is the most appropriate to be included in overweigth and obesity intervention programs, and the aim of this paper is to describe the design and the evaluation methods used to carry out the PRONAF study...

BACKGROUND: Breastfeeding is considered the most beneficial, natural nutrition for babies. Qualitative and quantitative composition of breast milk is ideal for implementing all the nutritional needs of infants up to 6 months of age, assuming that the nursing mother's diet is correct. OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to evaluate the intake of energy, proteins, fat, carbohydrates and cholesterol in the group of 100 breastfeeding women, aged 19 to 38 years, from Masovian province...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to assess the nutritional status, and provide information regarding anthropometric measurements of cerebral-palsied children living in the city of Ankara, Turkey. METHOD: A total of 447 children with cerebral palsy (CP) were participated in this cross-sectional study. Participants were assessed for functional motor impairment by the gross motor function classification system (GMFCS). Assesment of nutritional status was based on the triceps skinfold thickness (TSF), arm fat area (AFA) estimates derived from TSF and mid-upper arm circumference measurements...

AIM: Examine the interrater reliability between and among registered and enrolled nurses using Modified Norton Scale, Pressure Ulcer Card and Short Form-Mini Nutritional Assessment. BACKGROUND: In Sweden, registered nurses and enrolled nurses usually co-operate in patient care. National guidelines emphasize that reliable and valid assessment tools should be used. Interrater reliability for regular use of assessment tools is seldom studied. DESIGN CROSS-SECTIONAL: Registered nurses and enrolled nurses made 228 assessments of patients' skin, risk for pressure ulcer and malnutrition, in patients with hip fracture and patients who had suffered a stroke...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: To asses the nutritional status of hospitalised trauma patients and the repercussion on the clinical follow up. METHODS: In a prospective way 161 adult patients admitted to the units of Intensive Care (ICU), General Surgery, Maxillofacial Surgery and Orthopedics of the Centro de Emergencias Médicas in Asunción, Paraguay, from March 2002 to March 2004 were evaluated at admission by using the Subjective Global Assessment (SGA). Patients were followed to determine length of hospital stay, complications and in-hospital mortality...

Protein-energy malnutrition (PEM) is common in hemodialysis patients. Subjective Global Assesment (SGA) and Mini Nutritional Assessment (MNA) are two tools for monitoring PEM. Our aim was to determine reliability of MNA in detecting malnutrition in hemodialysis patients in comparison with SGA. The study population consisted of 137 patients with pure PEM with no signs of chronic inflammation. Nutritional statuses of patients were assessed concomitantly by SGA and MNA. Ninety-two patients were in SGA-A, 40 patients were in SGA-B, and 5 patients were in SGA-C...

Puberty has a key role in bone development. During puberty, several nutritional and hormonal factors play a major role in this process. The aim of this study was to determine the changes in areal bone mineral density (BMD), gonadal steroids, bone formation markers, and growth parameters in healthy Turkish pubertal girls and boys at different pubertal stages. In additional, we aimed to detect the relationship between BMD, sex steroids, and growth parameters, and to reveal the most important determinant of BMD in the pubertal period...

A somatic development assesment, including the nutritive condition at the moment of diagnosis and after at least a year's dietary treatment was carried out in a group of 55 children with primary cow's milk protein intolerance. The influence of the applied elimination diet and/or anti-allergic supporting treatment on the clinical picture was evaluated as well as calcium--phosphorus--magnesium balance parameters.

When the experiment "Convenience foods in hospitals" was planned it had to be established that it is nutritionally justified to replace conventionally cooked hot meals by deep-frozen ones. Therefore a study was devoted to the assesment of the nutritive value, immediately prior to consumption, of hot meal components prepared in different ways, namely: under ideal domestic conditions, in the central kitchens of institutions and industrially deep-frozen. The following meal components were chosen for the study: 6 different types of meat with their gravies, 6 different types of vegetables and potatoes prepared in 2 different ways...
