Milk Protein and Enteral and Parenteral Feeding in Disease

  • G. K. Grimble

The incidence of nutritional deficiencies in hospitalized patients is often high [20, 21, 62, 90] but the indications for instituting nutritional support are both controversial and difficult to define. In general, patients requiring nutrition support fall into three groups. The first group comprises patients with preexisting weight loss, a low plasma albumin level, muscle wasting, and peripheral edema. Patients in the second group present with no overt malnutrition but have a dietary history of reduced intake for 2–4 weeks preceding admission. Finally, there are patients with normal nutritional status but whose underlying pathology results in malnutrition if nutritional support is withheld. These aspects are discussed in detail elsewhere [115].
