Helen Keller International (HKI) has been implementing homestead food production (HFP)
programs in Asia for the past 20 years and has recently begun implementing HFP programs in
Africa as well. In general, these programs target women and are designed to improve maternal
and child health and nutrition outcomes through three primary pathways: 1. Increasing the
availability of micronutrient-rich foods through increased household production of these
foods; 2. ... Read More

Hyperglycemia increases the risk of complications in surgical patients. Focus on poor
glycemic control as a contributor to adverse outcomes in settings outside the intensive care
unit (ICU) is often dismissed. Total parenteral Nutrition (TPN) has been used in providing
surgical patients with nutrition to prevent deterioration of nutritional status. However,
many diabetic patients receiving TPN develop exaggerated hyperglycemia that requires
frequent insulin ... Read More

The etiology of parenteral nutrition-associated cholestasis(PNAC)although elusive is thought
to be multifactorial, and proposed theories also include problems arising from lipid
emulsions, leading us to explore alternative products available elsewhere.So we compare the
different fat emulsion, and want to see if the olive oil lipid emulsions can improve hepatic
tolerance in preterm infant.
To evaluate the effectiveness of nutrition education and dietary counselling to improve the
nutritional status, well-being and quality of life of people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA)
attending an HIV treatment facility in Bangkok Thailand.
Polar lipids have a specific chemical structure: they are an essential component of human
cell membranes, play a major role in the nervous system and also influence the metabolic
pathways including the cholesterol metabolism.
Polar lipids are used in food-processing industry for their emulsification properties. The
most famous emulsifier is soya lecithin but milk also naturally contains natural emulsifiers
such as polar lipids.

It is the purpose of this trial to provide evidence for safety and efficacy of long term
home parenteral nutrition with either Lipofundin MCT or Lipoplus in patients with proven
insufficient enteral resorption.
A nutrition-focused QIP will be implemented as standard of care at select branches of the
home health division of the health care system. The QIP will be comprised of two groups of
patients, Group 1 will consist of hospitalized, at-risk/malnourished patients being
discharged to home health, and Group 2 will consist of outpatients at-risk/malnourished
patients enrolled in home health. Both groups will be followed for 90 days post enrollment.
The QIP groups ... Read More
The purpose of this study is to investigate whether the inclusion of 1g of intravenous
taurine as part of the nitrogen source of parenteral nutrition reduces parenteral nutrition
associated cholestatic liver disease, a common side effect of parenteral nutrition.
Undernutrition is a state marked by energy and/or protein intake deficiency or
mal-absorption, and is often described as protein energy malnutrition (PEM). Malnutrition is
common in hospitalized patients worldwide. The prevalence of malnutrition in hospitalized
patients range from 20% - 50%, depends on the varieties of diseases, health system,
population and assessment tools. It is well documented in Western countries that
malnutrition affects clinical ... Read More
The purpose of this study is to determine whether children on long-term parenteral nutrition

matched) that have never received parenteral nutrition.
Glutamine supplementation has beneficial effects on morbidity and mortality in critically
ill patients, possibly in part through an attenuation of the proinflammatory cytokine
response and a Immune function. In this trial intensive care unit patients with enteral
feeding will receive either enteral glutamine or maltodextrin as placebo for 28 days.
