The effect of dietary pectin on rapid catch-up weight gain and urea kinetics in children recovering from severe undernutrition.

Acta paediatrica (Oslo, Norway : 1992)

Doherty J, Jackson AA.
PMID: 1392364
Acta Paediatr. 1992 Jun-Jul;81(6):514-7. doi: 10.1111/j.1651-2227.1992.tb12285.x.

The rates of weight gain and urea kinetics were measured in 12 children receiving one of two energy dense, isonitrogenous formulae (711 kJ/kg/day, 170 kcal/kg/day) during recovery from severe undernutrition. Both formulations contained added arachis oil but in one...

Recent developments in the nutritional management of diarrhoea. 2. Chronic diarrhoea and malnutrition in The Gambia: studies on intestinal permeability.

Transactions of the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene

Lunn PG, Northrop-Clewes CA, Downes RM.
PMID: 1906207
Trans R Soc Trop Med Hyg. 1991 Jan-Feb;85(1):8-11. doi: 10.1016/0035-9203(91)90137-n.

Chronic diarrhoea and malnutrition in Gambian children is associated with persisting damage to the mucosa of the small intestine. Intestinal permeability tests suggest that mucosal status gradually deteriorates with age throughout the first year of life in tandem with...

[Nutrition of children with hypotrophy in relation to hydrolysis and absorption of carbohydrates in the intestines].

The authors diagnosed lactose malabsorption by the breath hydrogen analysis in 11 premature and mature babies, in 16 infants and in 28 children between the ages of 3-18 years. All patients were treated with Galantase (beta-galactosidase). According to the...

Protein turnover in malnourished patients with cystic fibrosis: effects of elemental and nonelemental nutritional supplements.

Journal of pediatric gastroenterology and nutrition

Pelekanos JT, Holt TL, Ward LC, Cleghorn GJ, Shepherd RW.
PMID: 2109053
J Pediatr Gastroenterol Nutr. 1990 Apr;10(3):339-43. doi: 10.1097/00005176-199004000-00013.

To evaluate the relative efficacy of nonelemental versus semielemental enteral supplements for nutritional rehabilitation of cystic fibrosis (CF) patients, whole-body protein turnover using the [15N]glycine method was studied in nine malnourished CF patients during enteral feedings, in a block...

This paper details the steps to design and implement a positive deviance-informed, "Hearth" approach for the nutritional rehabilitation of malnourished children in the district of Leogane, Haiti. Groups of four to five children met daily for two weeks at...

Serum inorganic phosphate in protein-energy malnutrition.

European journal of clinical nutrition

Waterlow JC, Golden MH.
PMID: 7956992
Eur J Clin Nutr. 1994 Jul;48(7):503-6.

We retrieved a series of measurements made 35 years ago of the concentration of inorganic phosphate (P) in the serum from 56 cases of severe protein-energy malnutrition at the Tropical Metabolism Research Unit, Jamaica. There is no record of...

del Real S, Páez MC, Solano L, Fajardo Z.
PMID: 12448342
Arch Latinoam Nutr. 2002 Sep;52(3):274-81.

The objective of this study was to determine whether the addition of iron and vitamin A (VA) to corn flour, supplied through a national enrichment program since 1993, allows preschoolers to achieve an adequate intake of these nutrients. Data...

Proposed recommended nutrient densities for moderately malnourished children.

Food and nutrition bulletin

Golden MH.
PMID: 19998863
Food Nutr Bull. 2009 Sep;30(3):S267-342. doi: 10.1177/15648265090303S302.

Recommended Nutrient Intakes (RNIs) are set for healthy individuals living in clean environments. There are no generally accepted RNIs for those with moderate malnutrition, wasting, and stunting, who live in poor environments. Two sets of recommendations are made for...

Monitoring the adequacy of catch-up growth among moderately malnourished children receiving home-based therapy using mid-upper arm circumference in southern Malawi.

Maternal and child health journal

Connor NE, Manary MJ, Maleta K.
PMID: 20082126

BACKGROUND: Severe malnutrition contributes up to 50% of childhood mortality in developing countries is frequently characterised by electrolyte depletion, including low total body phosphate. During therapeutic re-feeding, electrolyte shift from extracellular to intra-cellular compartments may induce hypo-phosphataemia (hypo-P) with...
