Nutritional treatment has become an essential component of the management of critically ill, due to better knowledge about positive impact of nutritional support. Malnutrition among ICU patients is associated with increased morbidity, mortality, length of stay (LOS) and therefore higher costs.Several studies however suggest, that early implementation of nutritional support is associated with improved clinical outcome, shorter LOS, and decreased infection ...

The ICAN Pilot project aims to evaluate the differences in economic, clinical and quality of life outcomes of a nutrition intervention involving lifestyle case management and medical nutrition therapy by a registered dietitian compared to usual medical care in obese persons with type 2 diabetes. The intervention is aimed at moderate weight loss (> 5-10%), improvement in diet quality and an increase in physical activity. Read More

An increasing number of patients survive critical illness and intensive care, but describe having impaired physical function several years after discharge as a consequence of extensive loss of muscle mass. Reasons for loss of muscle mass and physical function are multiple, but insufficient nutrition is likely to contribute. This randomised trial will investigate the effect of an optimised nutrition therapy during intensive care, on short term clinical ... Read More

A prospective, randomized controlled study, using stable isotope methodology, is proposed to determine whether an oral nutrition support regimen, containing pressurized whey protein and glucose, is more effective at normalizing the metabolic response to surgery than a standard peripheral parenteral nutrition (PPN) support regimen, containing amino acids and glucose, in colorectal surgical patients studied before and after surgery. The effectiveness of the ... Read More

The aim of this study is to compare two nutritional regimes in critically ill patients. Patients will be randomized to standard care (25 kcal per kg) or to hypocaloric nutrition (15 kcal per kg). Both regimes will recive 1,7 g/Kg/dia The main outcome will be the SOFA (sequential organ failure assessment) score. The hypothesis is that hypocaloric hyperproteic diet decreases the incidence of organic failure in these patients. Read More
