Associations of Nutrition Therapy with chemical compounds

  • The observations that malnutrition frequently affects cancer patients, that it adversely affects postoperative prognosis, and that it is amenable to intensive nutrition therapy, lead logically to the hypothesis that preoperative parenteral nutrition should have a salutary effect on many patients undergoing oncologic surgery [9].
  • Medical nutrition therapy lowered total serum cholesterol levels 13% (P < .001), low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) 15% (P < .0001), triglyceride 11% (P < .05), and high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (HDL-C) 4% (P < .05) [10].
  • Institute of Medicine urges Medicare coverage of medical nutrition therapy [11].
  • Parental education about dietary management of CGGM with specialized formula supplemented with fructose and solid food feedings was an important component of this infant's nutrition therapy [12].
  • The method is as sensitive as atomic absorption for zinc (sensitivity: 0.11 mumol/l) and copper (sensitivity: 0.020 mumol/l) and can also be applied to monitor aluminium (sensitivity: 0.12 mumol/l) for patients receiving total nutrition therapy or hemodialysis [13].
