Malnutrition is common problem in hospitalized geriatrics at discharge. Malnutrition is a high risk for functional limitations, impaired muscle strength and reduced quality of life.
Severe malnutrition can be seen as a low BMI, great weight loss, and even low levels of micronutrients. Current studies on severe malnutrition are mainly in patient with anorexia nervosa. The refeeding phase of these high-risk patients bears a further threat to health and potentially fatal complications (such as refeeding syndrome, infection and severe arrhythmia). The objective of this study is to investigate complications due to refeeding of patients with severe malnutrition,...
Malnutrition of patients on admission to hospitals are estimated to be as high as 60%, although the prevalence varies between countries. The impact of malnutrition on patient recovery and discharge is severe, with extensive cost implications. This study aims to assess the prevalence of at risk for malnutrition among adult patients admitted to hospital across 3 countries on the African continent.
Malnutrition in children has even more severe consequences on disease course and long-term health than malnutrition in adults. According to prior studies, malnutrition affects about 15-30 % of hospitalized children in Europe (ESPGHAN 2005, Pawellek et al 2008, Joosten and Hulst 2008). However, available criteria for defining malnutrition in paediatric patients are inconsistent, not based on firm evidence, and not generally agreed upon. Current guidelines do not address assessme...
Protein-energy malnutrition (PEM) including moderate acute malnutrition (MAM: weight-for-height z-score
The main objective is to evaluate the sensitivity of the EPA® for screening for malnutrition in general medicine in adults.
The aim of the study is to describe the nutritional status among elderly patients admitted to hospital and to analyze the association with mortality and the costs of health care consumption. Further the aim is to analyze predictive factors for malnutrition. The hypothesis is that malnourished patients have a higher mortality then well-nourished patients after three years.
Background: Malnutrition is frequently occurring in sick patients and is associated with a higher morbidity and mortality. Muscle dysfunction is a common finding in malnutrition which leads to a reduced functional status and quality of life. Specific aims: The purpose of the study is to evaluate the effect of a three month nutritional intervention with oral supplements on nutritional status, muscle function and quality of life.
Both malnutrition and inflammation are associated with death in dialysis patients and also with cardiovascular disease. The researchers are testing the idea that inflammation causes malnutrition by using a drug to suppress inflammation in hemodialysis patients to find out whether that will increase blood tests that are associated with malnutrition. The researchers will give hemodialysis patients who have both inflammation and malnutrition either thalidomide or a placebo and co...
Previous studies have demonstrated the direct associations between malnutrition and hospital mortality as well as the length of stay in critically ill patients. However, the validity of these results may be limited by inappropriate diagnoses of malnutrition, small sample size, possible treatment bias, and sub-optimal statistical adjustment. This study aimed to further examine the aforementioned associations by addressing these limitations.
This is a cluster-randomized controlled trial taking place in 20 community clinics providing malnutrition care in Sierra Leone. All participants will be children aged 6-59 months. Control participants will have moderate acute malnutrition (MAM), defined as mid-upper arm circumference (MUAC) 11.5-12.5. High Risk MAM will be defined with a MUAC 11.5 to
Children with moderate acute malnutrition will be recruited in order to receive an intervention which consists in the consumption of a single serving of SF-cookies daily, 7-days a week for 12 months and 12 educational sessions on health and nutrition.
The overall goal of this study is to identify the optimal nutritional requirement for treatment of severe acute malnutrition in children with sickle cell disease (SCD). No international standard or evidence based guidelines exist for treatment of moderate or severe acute malnutrition in children with SCD.
The program effectiveness study aims to assess the effect of a lipid-based nutrition supplement (LNS) and micronutrient powder (MNP) provided in a programmatic context for improving maternal nutritional status during pregnancy and lactation (LNS only), and preventing malnutrition in infants and young children (LNS and MNP) in Bangladesh.
Children with severe malnutrition who are admitted sick to hospitals have a high mortality(death rate), usually because of infection. All children with severe malnutrition admitted to hospitals are treated with antibiotics(medication used to kill bacteria). However, the current antibiotics used in hospitals may not be the most effective. It is possible that the antibiotics that are currently used after initial antibiotics should be used first. No studies have been carried out t...
In order to make Cambodia independent from importing a product for the treatment and prevention of malnutrition, UNICEF, DFPTQ Fisheries Administration and IRD have started a collaboration for the development of a range of products for the treatment and prevention of malnutrition. To reduce costs of the product, and to adapt the taste to local circumstances, the protein source of the usual RUTF (milk powder) has been changed to fish (Trey Riel). The main objective of this sub-s...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether 14 days nutritional supplementation with Ready to use therapeutic Food (RUTF) or micronutrients alone to children having an infection will prevent malnutrition and reduce the frequency of morbidity.
Malnutrition is a major cause of death in chronic hemodialysis patients. Primary treatment of malnutrition in these patients is dietetic counseling, additional enteral nutrition and occasionally drug therapy. In cases where primary treatment of malnutrition is not effective, intradialytic parenteral nutrition (IDPN)during dialysis therapy may be administered. Using IDPN aminoacids, carbohydrates and fatty acids as well as vitamins and trace elements can be given to the p...
This cluster-randomized controlled trial will evaluate the effectiveness of a four-day hospital-based intervention program for primary caregivers of children with severe malnutrition.
This is a double blinded randomized clinical trial of Alanyl-Glutamine or Glycine in children with persistent diarrhea or malnutrition. The primary objective of the study is to determine the effect of 7 days of supplementation of alanyl-glutamine as it compares to glycine on the damaged intestinal barrier function, measured by lactulose/mannitol test on day 8, in children at HIAS in Fortaleza, Ce, Brazil, with persistent diarrhea (history > 2 weeks duration) or malnutrition.
The study evaluates the impact of a multi-sectoral intervention (water, sanitation, and hygiene; training on climate smart activities; care groups for mothers; market gardens) on the prevalence of acute malnutrition as the primary outcome using a randomized intervention trial between 2012-2017 with four points of data collection (2012, 2014, 2015, and 2017).
The purpose of this study is to determine the prevalence of malnutrition and/or sarcopenia at admission to the hospital in older adults.
This study will determine the effect of 7 days supplementation of alanyl-glutatime or glycine on the damaged intestinal barrier function on day 8 in children with persistent diarrhea or malnutrition.
Child malnutrition is intimately associated to poverty and may be due to sub-optimal feeding behaviours, food insecurity at household level, or a combination of both. Acute malnutrition is a major contributor to under-5 mortality and morbidity in developing countries. While clinical guidelines for severe acute malnutrition (SAM) have been available for a decade, research on the management of moderate acute malnutrition (MAM) has lagged behind. Nonetheless, MAM is much more inci...
This is a cluster RCT in 6 health centres in Uganda, testing supportive supervision to improve health outcomes and quality of care of children with malnutrition
