MOREIRA, Ana Catarina et al. Nutritional status influences generic and disease-specific quality of life measures in haemodialysis patients. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2013, vol.28, n.3, pp.951-957. ISSN 1699-5198. http://dx.doi.org/10.3305/nh.2013.28.3.6454.. Background: Poor nutritional status and worse health-related quality of life (QoL) have been reported in haemodialysis (HD) patients. The utilization of generic and disease specific QoL questionnaires in the same population may provide a better understanding of the significance of nutrition in QoL dimensions. Objective: To assess nutritional status by easy to use parameters and to evaluate the potential relationship with QoL measured by generic and disease specific questionnaires. Methods: Nutritional status was assessed by subjective global assessment adapted to renal patients (SGA), body mass index (BMI), nutritional intake and appetite. QoL was assessed by the generic EuroQoL and disease specific Kidney Disease Quality of Life-Short Form ...
Advanced cancer patients with poor nutritional status have a diminished quality of life. These findings suggest that there is a need for a comprehensive nutritional intervention for improving nutritional status and quality of life in terminally ill cancer patients under hospice care.
Downloadable (with restrictions)! The study examines the relationships between womens work and child nutritional status (stunting and wasting) of 5331 Nigerian children aged 0-59 months, using data from the 1990 Nigerian Demographic and Health Survey. In defining womens work, the study considers whether women earned cash from their work and carried their children to work in order to assess the importance of childcare and income, which are the principal pathways through which womens work affects child nutritional status. The study also examines infants and children differently in order to assess the influence of childs age on nutritional status. The results reveal that wasting among infants increased when mothers did not take them to work. Furthermore, mothers work reduced stunting in their children, but the expected positive effect of earning cash from work on childhood nutrition was less visible from the results. Other results from the study revealed that during infancy, having recent episodes of
TY - CONF. T1 - The role of physical activity and nutritional intake on nutritional status in patients with head and neck cancer. AU - Sealy, Martine. PY - 2015/6. Y1 - 2015/6. N2 - Malnutrition is a frequent problem in patients with head and neck cancer. Prevention or timely treatment of malnutrition isof great importance because deteriorated nutritional status can have a negative effect on clinical outcome in head andneck cancer patients.Malnutrition is a multidimensional problem, in which a nutritional disbalance causes loss of weight and muscle mass, eitheror not accompanied by inflammatory activity, resulting in functional decline.Thus far, little is known about the role of physical activity in both the development and treatment of malnutrition in cancerpatients. Although positive effects of exercise on fatigue and quality of life have been reported, the relationship betweenphysical activity and prevention and treatment of malnutrition needs to be further elucidated.In this presentation, ...
Nutrition plays an important role in aging and health. Little is documented on the risks of relocation from home to an institution in relation to the nutritional status of the older persons in Kenya and other developing countries. The purpose of the study was to investigate risk factors associated with nutritional status of the older persons in the homes. The objectives of the study were to; establish the risk factors associated with nutritional status of the older persons in these homes and identify the relationship between risks that have an effect on nutritional status. A conceptual framework derived from Help age International publications guided the study. A descriptive survey design using a multi instrument approach was used. All the 69 (sixty nine) older persons aged between 63 (sixty three) and 107 (a hundred and seven) from the two homes whereby 50 (fifty) came from Nyumbani situated in Nairobi while 19 (nineteen) came from Thogoto in Kiambu were used to provide the required data. Data ...
Weight loss and malnutrition are common in DMD. However, there are no studies that have assessed the effect of nutritional status on clinical outcome in DMD. This study was designed to assess the impact of poor nutritional status on outcomes over a 12-month period.. A retrospective case series study was conducted. All DMD patients over 16 years referred to a tertiary centre were recruited (n = 79; 16-41 years). Nutritional parameters [baseline and current weight, body mass index (BMI)] and feeding routes were assessed in relation to outcome indicators [length of stay (LOS), re-admission and infection episodes)].. BMI was only measured in 34/79 (43%) of patients. The mean (SD) BMI was 20.8 (5.5) kg/m2. Re-admission risk was greater in underweight (BMI,20kg/m2) or overweight (BMI,25kg/m2) compared to normal BMI patients (RR 1.2, 1.43, respectively). Patients admitted to hospital weighed significantly less than non-admitted patients with a median (IQR) of 51kg (39,66) vs. 64kg (50,76; p=0.03). ...
Dietary intake and nutrition statusDefinitionDietary intake refers to the daily eating patterns of an individual, including specific foods and calories consumed and relative quantities. Nutrition status refers to the availability of nutrients and calories in the individuals diet compared to nutrition recommendations for the individuals age group and overall health status.

Aim: Rate of obesity is high among patients with type 2 diabetes thus assessment of the nutritional status is often ignored in these patients. This study aimed to evaluate nutritional status of patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus who were hospitalized forpoor glycemic control and to define the risk factors related to malnutrition. Methods: Study included a total of 104 patients (67 female, 37 male, mean age: 65.08 +/- 12.57) who were hospitalized in the Internal Medicine Clinics for poor glycemic control. Patients nutritional status was evaluated on the first day of admission. Demographic, anthropometric and biochemical data of the cases were evaluated. Nutritional status was assessed with Mini Nutritional Assessment(MNA) test. Results: Malnutrition rate was 7.7%, rate of the patients with malnutrition risk was 18.3% and rate of the patients with normal nutritional status was found as 74%. Body mass index was 25 kg/m(2) or higher in 37.5% of the patients with malnutrition and 63.2% in ...
Adequate nutrition is fundamental to the development of a childs full potential. However, the extent to which malnutrition affects developmental and cognitive outcomes in the midst of co-occurring risk factors remains largely understudied. We sought to establish if the effects of nutritional status varied according to diverse background characteristics as well as to compare the relative strength of the effects of poor nutritional status on language skills, motor abilities and cognitive functioning at school age. This cross-sectional study was conducted among school-age boys and girls resident in Kilifi District in Kenya. We hypothesized that the effects of area of residence, school attendance, household wealth, age and gender on child outcomes are experienced directly and indirectly through child nutritional status. The use of structural equation modelling (SEM) allowed the disaggregation of the total effect of the explanatory variables into direct effects (effects that go directly from one
Last month, David was told by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) that he would need to comply with Canadian food labeling standards for what they call "simulated meat products" in order to maintain distribution of all the products in Canada. According to the CFIA, any food item that takes on tFood Labeling Politics and Vegetarian Meats in Canadahe appearance and quality of a similar traditional animal flesh-based item must emulate the nutritional profile of the similar animal-based item. In other words, the nutritional profile of animal flesh is seen to be the standard in protein, fat and amino acid content as far as the Canadian government is concerned, and no other nutritional profiles that a plant-based meat would normally have are recognized as being valid or legal to sell on Canadian store shelves.. David takes issue with this regulation, and rather than comply with the CFIA as other vegan meat products have done to stay in Canada, he intends to try to work with the government to ...
Objective Adequate nutrition is critical for optimal growth and development. However, young children may be at risk of nutrient deficiencies when transitioning to weaning foods for a variety of reasons. Supplementation with fortified milk may provide potentially lacking essential nutrients, but effects on growth and nutritional status are yet to be established.. Design Five databases were searched for randomised controlled trials using fortified milk against control milk in young children. Outcomes were growth, body composition and/or biochemical markers. Pooled differences in means were calculated for continuous outcomes and odds ratios for binary outcomes. Setting Randomised controlled trials set in any country.. Subjects Otherwise healthy children aged 6-47 months. Results Fifteen articles met the eligibility criteria. Fortification varied from Fe, Zn, vitamins, essential fatty acids, to pre- and/or probiotics. Frequently reported outcomes were weight, height and Fe status. Studies varied in ...

Cancer patients are particularly susceptible to nutritional depletion due to the combined effects of the malignant disease and its treatment. CRS followed by HIPEC is a major surgical procedure that can further accentuate the risk of nutritional depletion in patients with peritoneal carcinomatosis [10, 11, 33]. As a result, timely nutritional assessment and intervention in this patient population might be critical to achieving optimal clinical outcomes including LOS, cost, quality of life, survival and ability to tolerate treatment. In this retrospective study of the first 60 patients at our institution who had CRS and HIPEC for peritoneal carcinomatosis, we investigated the relationship between baseline nutritional status and clinical outcomes. We also conducted a preliminary analysis of clinical outcomes as a function of parenteral nutrition.. There are 2 key findings of our study. Baseline nutritional status, as evaluated using SGA, was predictive of patient LOS. This finding is consistent ...
Ethiopias Productive Safety Net Programme (PSNP) is a large-scale social protection intervention aimed at improving food security and stabilizing asset levels. The PSNP contains a mix of public works employment and unconditional cash and food transfers. It is a well-targeted program; however, several years passed before payment levels reached the intended amounts. The PSNP has been successful in improving household food security. However, childrens nutritional status in the localities where the PSNP operates is poor, with 48 percent of children stunted in 2012. This leads to the question of whether the PSNP could improve child nutrition. In this paper, we examine the impact of the PSNP on childrens nutritional status over the period 2008-2012. Doing so requires paying particular attention to the targeting of the PSNP and how payment levels have evolved over time. Using inverse-probability-weighted regression-adjustment estimators, we find no evidence that the PSNP reduces either chronic ...

Results Patients with SSc had reduced phase angle (PhA) values, body cell mass (BCM), percentages of cells, increased extracellular mass (ECM) and ECM/BCM values compared with healthy donors. Malnutrition was best reflected by the PhA values. Of the patients with SSc, 69 (55.7%) had malnutrition that was associated with severe disease and activity. As assessed by multivariate analysis, low predicted forced vital capacity and high N-terminal(NT)-proBNP values discriminated best between good and bad nutritional status. Among different clinical parameters, low PhA values were the best predictors for SSc-related mortality. BMI values were not related to disease symptoms or mortality. Fifty per cent of patients with SSc had a lower energy uptake related to their energy requirement, 19.8% related to their basal metabolism. Nutritional treatment improved the patients nutritional status. ...
The objective of this review was to assess the impact of preventive nutrition interventions on health and nutritional status of adolescents aged 10–19 years in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). We searched the databases until 5 February 2019 without any restrictions on publication, date, language, or publication status. A total of 10 studies (15 papers) including 10,802 participants assessing the impact of micronutrient supplementation/fortification were included in this review. We did not find any study assessing the impact of nutrition education and counseling or macronutrient supplementation among adolescents. Among primary outcomes, we are uncertain of the effect of iron supplementation with or without folic acid on anemia (daily supplementation; relative risk (RR): 1.04, 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.42, 2.57; one study; 1160 participants; low-quality evidence; weekly supplementation; RR: 1.07, 95% CI: 0.46, 2.52; one study; 1247 participants; low-quality evidence).

An analysis of the breastfeeding pattern at 3 months of age reveals that 86% and 85.7% of babies were exclusively breastfed in study group and controls respectively, whereas partial breastfeeding was given only in 5.9%and 4.8% respectively. The number of exclusively breastfed infants declined to 52.9% and 78.6% at 6 months in study group and controls respectively. In 1996, study by Abdur-rahiman, Ahmad [7] on effects of maternal nutritional status on the outcome of pregnancy, showed that exclusive breastfeeding was given in 80% of babies during first 4 months which declined to only 10% at six months of age. The increased incidence of exclusive breastfeeding in our study is a reflection of our efforts towards implementing a hospital breastfeeding policy.. The mean weight of babies in the study group (2.04±.36kg) was observed to be constantly below the 5th percentile at birth and during the 6 months follow up. The pattern of serial weight gain in this group is in close agreement with serial ...
1. Introduction Despite all efforts undertaken both nationally and internationally, poor nutritional status is still a fundamental cause of disease and shortened life-span. Most people are aware that many factors are either directly or indirectly responsible for undernutrition, including insecure food supply, lack of basic education, inadequate health services, deteriorated environment, low income, and inadequate empowerment. The factors contributing to malnutrition vary from community to community. However, poverty is nearly always an underlying factor. To improve the nutritional status and improve living conditions in communities, it is necessary to determine the nature, magnitude and causes of malnutrition. Anthropometric indices are internationally accepted as nutrition key indicators of populations. Additionally, they have been recommended repeatedly as a suitable key indicator for poverty as well. The use of anthropometric indicators is based on the extensively observed phenomena that a ...
Malnutrition is a commonly existing problem at Swedish hospitals and nursing homes. Despite this there is a lack of national guidelines for assessment of and interventions during malnutrition. The aim of this study was to investigate in which way nutritional status can be assessed on an old multipical ill patient in a hospital or at a nursing home. And what nursing interventions the nursing staff can make to improve patients nutritional status. The chosen method was a literature review which was based on twelve scientific articles. The result shows that a combination of anthropometic measurements, biochemical markers and an assessment tool is required for an adequate estimation of nutritional status. Nursing interventions that could be used by the nursing staff are individually adjusted meal support, in between meal snacks, oral feeding support and dietary records. Further knowledge and research is required to reach national guidelines for nutritional assessment ...

Disease related malnutrition is a concern for the critically ill, however there is a paucity of research examining nutrition recovery in survivors of critical illness. Prior to the development of nutrition interventions to enhance recovery from critical illness, a more comprehensive understanding of the nutrition recovery trajectory and factors influencing the early stages of ward-based recovery is required. Thus, the overarching purpose of this thesis was to produce a comprehensive body of work that enhances our understanding of various facets of nutrition recovery in the hospitalized, critically ill patient following liberation from mechanical ventilation (LMV). To explore and characterize nutrition recovery, I first evaluated: 1) the feasibility of performing common measures of nutritional status during the first seven days following LMV, 2) nutrition intake following LMV, and 3) meal and food intake patterns of patients prescribed non-modified oral diets following LMV. The compilation of ...

In the present study, we provided a snapshot of the nutritional status of CD adolescents in Brazil using instruments and methods that are available at any health facility where such patients might be followed. We found that BMI-for-age and height-for-age were significantly lower in the patients with CD than in the controls, a finding that was consistent with those of Burnham et al. [18], who studied 104 children and young adults with CD evaluated an average of 4 years after the disease had been diagnosed (as was the case in the present study).. In a similar study, Thayu et al. [19] investigated a sample of 78 children and adolescents with CD and found significant changes in growth, pubertal development, and body composition (in particular, lean body mass loss) at diagnosis in comparison with the control group, although they found no differences between the genders. The deficit of lean body mass persisted throughout the follow-up period.. In the present study, caloric intake was found to be lower ...

I often find myself looking up the nutrient profiles of the foods I eat. I try to do it on a regular basis, just to see where my diet is lacking. What I usually discover, is that Im deficient in one nutrient or another. You really need to eat a lot of really high quality foods to take in the vitamins and minerals that are recommended by the FDA. And even when you pull that off, its still isnt necessarily enough. The daily recommended values that you see printed on the sides of most food packages, often reflect the minimum nutrients you need, rather than the most optimum nutrient intake.. And I know that Im not alone. Despite the fact that people living in the United States have access to more food than anyone else in the world, or throughout human history for that matter, millions of Americans are still deficient in many different kinds of nutrients. The most common of which include:. Vitamin D. Studies have shown that vitamin D deficiencies are skyrocketing in the US. Because we receive ...

Introduction to Food Rating System Chart. In order to better help you identify foods that feature a high concentration of nutrients for the calories they contain, we created a Food Rating System. This system allows us to highlight the foods that are especially rich in particular nutrients. The following chart shows the nutrients for which this food is either an excellent, very good, or good source (below the chart you will find a table that explains these qualifications). If a nutrient is not listed in the chart, it does not necessarily mean that the food doesnt contain it. It simply means that the nutrient is not provided in a sufficient amount or concentration to meet our rating criteria. (To view this foods in-depth nutritional profile that includes values for dozens of nutrients - not just the ones rated as excellent, very good, or good - please use the link below the chart.)

Optimal nutritional status occurs when there is a balance between nutrient intake and nutrient requirements. Less-than-optimal nutritional status in older adults can result from the following: 1) sub-optimal dietary intake; 2) age-related changes; 3) disease conditions and their treatment; or 4) other contextual factors such as cultural and religious beliefs, practices, and socioeconomic conditions.1. Age-related changes in economic and social status, such as retirement, a decrease in income, and living alone, can diminish the nutritional level of an older adult, leading to increased risk of illness, poor health, and limited mobility and independence.1 Increasing incidence of chronic disease (e.g., diabetes, cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, arthritis, depression), changes in body systems and organ function (e.g., gastrointestinal, immune, sensory systems, dentition, mental capacity), and changes in body composition, including increased body fat, decreased lean body mass, and decreased bone ...
