ABSTRACT

INTRODUCTION: The nutritional transition in Brazil is reaching the child population. In this context, studies have shown high prevalence of overweight and obesity in schoolchildren. : To analyze the nutritional and anthropometric status of children in a public school between the years 2013 and 2015METHODS: This is a longitudinal research using a study from 2013 as a baseline. The sample consisted of 73 students aged between 3 and 9 years old. Socioeconomic, anthropometric and school feeding information were collected using questionnaires according to the age of the student. The nutritional status was determined by collecting weight and height measurements, which were later used to express Weight/Age and Height/Age scores. Statistical analysis was done with the SPSS programRESULTS: The results showed that a significant portion of the students remained overweight and obese according Weight/Age index (21.8%) and at risk of low weight by the Height/Age and Weight/Age indexes (4.1% and 3.6%). These students had growth and weight gain within the normal range and most of them with an appropriate weight for their age, however there was a significant portion of students underweight and overweight/obeseCONCLUSION: The early identification of factors, which affect the growth and weight gain in childhood, may contribute to design strategies between the health team and the school crew to promote healthy eating habits among this audience


INTRODUÇÃO: A transição nutricional no Brasil vem alcançando também a população infantil. Neste âmbito, estudos tem demostrado altas prevalências de sobrepeso e obesidade em crianças em idade escolarOBJETIVO: Analisar o estado nutricional e antropométrico de crianças de uma escola pública entre os anos de 2013 e 2015MÉTODO: Foi desenvolvido um estudo longitudinal utilizando um estudo de 2013 como baseline. A amostra final foi composta de 73 escolares com idade inicial entre 3 e 9 anos. Foram coletadas informações socioeconômicas, antropométricas e de prática de alimentação escolar utilizando questionários de acordo com a idade do escolar. O estado nutricional for determinado pela coleta de medidas de peso e altura, posteriormente estas foram utilizadas para expressão z escores de Peso/Idade e Altura/Idade. Utilizou-se o SPSS para análises estatísticasRESULTADOS: Os resultados mostraram que uma expressiva parcela dos escolares se manteve em sobrepeso e obesidade a partir do índice Peso/Idade (21,8%) e em risco de baixo peso pelos índices Altura/Idade e Peso/Idade (4,1% e 3,6%). Estes escolares apresentaram um crescimento e ganho de peso dentro dos padrões de normalidade e a maioria apresentou peso adequado para a idade, no entanto existiu uma parcela expressiva de escolares que apresentam baixo peso e sobrepeso/obesidadeCONCLUSÃO: O estado nutricional de crianças está relacionado a diversos fatores que devem ser trabalhados por meio de ações de desenvolver ações de vigilância alimentar e nutricional e de educação alimentar e nutricional com os escolares para promover hábitos alimentares saudáveis

ABSTRACT

Los primeros mil días de vida son parte del Curso de Vida, al tomar en consideración la Epigenética, término postulado por Waddington en 1942: modifica la expresión genética SIN cambiar la secuencia de las bases de ADN. El proyecto internacional llamado DOHaD (Developmental Origins of Health and Disease) u ODSE (Orígenes del Desarrollo de la Salud y Enfermedad), está inserto dentro de la Transición Alimentaria y Nutricional (TAN), que, en países en desarrollo­ocurre en forma muy rápida ­produce tanto la malnutrición por déficit como por exceso; es decir la doble carga nutricional. La TAN es producto en nuestro país, de una urbanización acelerada y anárquica, y de cambios socioculturales, como la incorporación de la mujer al mercado de trabajo con menos tiempo para cocinar; está acompañada de una transición epidemiológica con la emergencia y prevalencia de la obesidad y de las enfermedades crónicas como morbiletalidad. Esta doble carga nutricional se modificó, por la situación país, y prevalece más el déficit que el exceso. Se presenta el PROYECTO FUNDACIÓN BENGOA ­ SVPP ­ SOGV ­ CANIA, cuya meta es: Elaborar una agenda preventiva común contra la malnutrición tanto por déficit como por exceso y sus comorbilidades, bajo el enfoque de los primeros mil días de vida y su efecto sobre todo el curso de vida. Se realizó el diseño y aplicación de tres cuestionarios digitales, que se utilizaran para la elaboración de esta meta. Se consolidó un CONSENSO NACIONAL formado por profesionales de la salud involucrados en los primeros mil días de vida(AU)


The first 1000 days of life is the new paradigm that determines health and nutrition during the life course, based on epidemiological models that incorporate the concept of Epigenetics, term introduced by Waddington, that refers to changes that affect the genetic expression without changing the DNA sequence, within the international program DOHaD/ODSE as well as the Food and Nutrition Transition(FNT). This FNT, product of an accelerated and anarchic urbanization that led to sedentary activities, plus the incorporation of women to the work media, with less time for cooking, with the substitution of the traditional diet for one much more practical and efficient in time and effort. It is accompanied by demographic and epidemiologic changes and transitions. The Double Burden of Nutrition in VENEZUELA has changed due to the effect of the recent crisis with a rise in malnutrition and a fall in obesity/overweight. The current project: Fundación Bengoa- Pediatric Society Venezuela (SVPP) ­ CANIA - Obstetric Society of Venezuela (SOGV) is called Developmental Origins of Health and Disease in Venezuela (DOHaD Venezuela): and by means of a national consensus of medical societies and institutions, its goal is "To elaborate a Preventive Agenda both for Malnutrition and for Overweight and Obesity and its comorbidities, considering the First 1000 Days of life and its effect over the life course"

ABSTRACT

Los primeros mil días de vida, desde la concepción hasta el final de los primeros dos años de vida, constituye un período crucial para establecer el desarrollo de la enfermedad o de la salud en la vida futura de los individuos. La exposición a ambientes adversos determinará las alteraciones temporales en el ADN que perduran en el tiempo que dicha exposición exista. Las políticas y programas destinados a garantizar el bienestar durante esta ventana crítica del crecimiento son cruciales para que la población goce de las mejores condiciones posibles que permitan la expresión de su máximo potencial, al cual están programados para desarrollar. Palabras clave: condiciones ambientales, programas y políticas(AU)


The first thousand days of life, from the conception until the end of the first two years of life, constitutes a key period in which the development of disease or health establishes in the future lives of individuals. Exposure to adverse environments will determine the temporary impairments in DNA that last as long as the exposure exists. Policies and programs aimed at guaranteeing well-being during this critical window of growth are crucial for the population to enjoy the best possible conditions that allow the expression of their maximum potential, to which they are programmed to develop(AU)

ABSTRACT

Introducción: La Organización Mundial de la Salud (OMS) establece los patrones de crecimiento de niños menores de 5 años. Colombia adoptó indicadores antropométricos y puntos de corte para clasificar el estado nutricional. Sin embargo, para desnutrición se considera Peso/Talla en vez del Índice de Masa Corporal (IMC). Objetivo: Identificar la prevalencia de malnutrición en menores de 5 años del área urbana del municipio de Palermo, Huila (Colombia), comparando los resultados con los patrones de la OMS y resolución 2465 de 2016 en el parámetro IMC/Edad. Materiales y métodos: Estudio de corte transversal, con enfoque analítico con 254 niños menores de 5 años del municipio de Palermo. Resultados: Según IMC/edad el 11,81% de los menores presentaron algún tipo de malnutrición: 1,9% desnutrición y 9,8% sobrepeso y obesidad. Un 25,5% estuvieron en riesgo de presentarlo, siendo mayor el sobrepeso (17,7%). Según parámetros OMS el 12,2% presentaron malnutrición: 9,8% por exceso y 2,4% por déficit. El 18,5% y 7,9% tuvieron riesgo de sobrepeso y bajo peso respectivamente. Conclusión: No existen diferencias al comparar la clasificación nutricional entre la Resolución y los parámetros de la OMS.


Introduction: The World Health Organization (WHO), has established the growth patterns of children under 5 years of age. Colombia has adopted anthropometric indicators and cut-off points to classify nutritional status. However, weight/height are the only measurements taken into account for defining malnutrition, instead of Body Mass Index (BMI). Objective: To identify malnutrition prevalence in children who are younger than 5 years of age and live in the metropolitan area of the municipality of Palermo-Huila (Colombia), comparing the results with the WHO reference standards and with the IMC/Age parameter of Resolution 2465 of 2106. Materials and methods: A cross-sectional study with an analytical approach was conducted on 254 children younger than 5 years old from Palermo. Results: According to the BMI/Age parameter 11.81% of the children showed some nutrition problem: 1.9% malnutrition and 9.8% overweight and obesity. 25.5% of children were at risk of having some type of malnutrition, with the risk of overweight (17.7%) being the highest. According to WHO parameters, 12.2% of child participants showed malnutrition: 9.8% due to excess and 2.4% because of a deficient intake of nutrients. It was observed that 18,5% and 7,9% of the minors were at risk of being overweight and underweight, respectively. Conclusions: There are no differences when comparing the nutritional classification of the Resolution with the one based on the WHO parameters.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVES: This study investigates the current state of consuming breakfast among elementary school students residing in Malang, East Java, Indonesia, and to identify factors that influence breakfast behavior.METHODS: The research model was set up as per the health belief model, and slightly modified by adding the subjective normative factors of the theory of planned behavior. The survey was conducted from July 17 to August 15, 2017 using a questionnaire, after receiving the permission PNU IRB (2017_60_HR).RESULTS: The subjects were 77 boys (49.4%) and 79 girls (50.6%) suffering from malnutrition with anemia (21.2%) and stunting ratio of Height for Age Z Score (HAZ) (11.5%). Furthermore, moderate weakness (14.8%) and overweight and obesity (12.3%) by Body Mass Index for Age Z Score (BMIZ) were coexistent. According to the results obtained for breakfast, 21.8% did not eat breakfast before school, with 18.8% of the reasons for skipping breakfast being attributed to lack of food. Even for subjects partaking breakfast, only about 10% had a good balanced diet. The average score of behavioral intention on eating breakfast was 2.60 ± 0.58. The perceived sensitivity, perceived severity, perceived benefits, and self-efficacy of the health belief model correlated with breakfast behavior. Of these, self-efficacy (β=0.447, R²=0.200) and perceived sensitivity (β=0.373, R²=0.139) had the greatest effect on breakfast behavior. Mother was the largest impact person among children.CONCLUSIONS: In order to increase the level of breakfast behavior intention among children surveyed in Indonesia, we determined the effectiveness by focus on education which helps the children recognize to be more likely to get sick when they don't have breakfast, and increase their confidence in ability to have breakfast on their own. We believe there is a necessity to seek ways to provide indirect intervention through mothers, as well as impart direct nutrition education to children.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Malnutrition has multiple impacts on surgical success, postoperative complications, duration of hospital stay, and costs, particularly for cancer patients. There are various nutrition risk screening tools available for clinical use. Herein, we aim to determine the most appropriate nutritional risk screening system for esophageal cancer (EC) patients in China.SUBJECTS/METHODS: In total, 138 EC patients were enrolled in this study and evaluated by experienced nurses using three different nutritional screening tools, the Nutrition Risk Screening 2002 tool (NRS2002), the Patient-generated Subjective Globe Assessment (PG-SGA), and the Nutrition Risk Index (NRI).We compared sensitivity, specificity, positive and negative likelihood ratios, and Youden index generated by each of the three screening tools. Finally, cut-off points for all three tools were re-defined to optimize and validate the best nutritional risk screening tool for assessing EC patients.RESULTS: Our data suggested that all three screening tools were 100% sensitive for EC patients, while the specificities were 44.4%, 2.96%, and 59.26% for NRS 2002, PG-SGA, and NRI, respectively. NRI had a higher positive likelihood ratio as well as a higher area under the receiver operating characteristic curve compared to those of NRS 2002 and PG-SGA; although, all three tools had null negative likelihood ratios. After adjusting the cut-off points, the specificity and accuracy for all tools were significantly improved, however, the NRI remained the most appropriate nutritional risk screening system for EC patients.CONCLUSIONS: The NRI is the most suitable (highest sensitivity and accuracy) nutritional risk screening tool for EC patients. The performance of the NRI can be significantly improved if the cut-off point is modified according to the results obtained using MedCalc software.

ABSTRACT

We evaluated the association between body mass index (BMI) and the prevalence of asthma. Using data from the 2015 Korean Community Health Survey, 214,971 participants aged between 19 and 106 years were included in this study. Asthma was defined based on the self-report of physician diagnosis. BMI was classified as underweight (<18.5 kg/m²), normal weight (18.5 kg/m²≤BMI<23.0 kg/m²), overweight (23.0 kg/m²≤ BMI<27.4 kg/m²), and obese (≥27.5 kg/m²) based on the BMI categories for Asians by the World Health Organization. Multiple logistic regression analysis was performed with sampling weights to evaluate the association between BMI and asthma after adjusting for age, educational level, income, type of residential area, smoking status, alcohol consumption, physical activity, hypertension, and diabetes. In men, BMI had an inverted J-shaped association with the prevalence of asthma, with an odds ratio of 1.88 (95% confidence interval [CI]: 1.89–2.24) for underweight and 1.12 (95% CIs: 0.97–1.29) for obesity. In women, BMI had a J-shaped association with the prevalence of asthma, with an odds ratio of 1.05 (95% CIs: 0.91–1.22) for underweight and 2.29 (95% CIs: 2.06–2.56) for obesity. In conclusion, in a nationally representative sample of Korean adults, the association between BMI and the prevalence of asthma varied between the sexes. This suggests that malnutrition and obesity are involved in the pathophysiology of asthma.

ABSTRACT

Introdução: Pacientes portadores de vasculopatia periférica internam recorrentemente para procedimentos cirúrgicos ou tratamento clínico devido a complicações da doença de base. O real impacto da desnutrição nesses pacientes durante a internação ainda é pouco compreendido. Objetivo: Investigar os fatores de risco associados à mortalidade em pacientes internados com doença vascular periférica devido a complicação da doença vascular. Métodos: Estudo observacional retrospectivo avaliou cento e dezessete pacientes acima de 18 anos admitidos no serviço de cirurgia vascular de hospital terciário no período de junho de 2013 a agosto de 2014 por complicação da doença vascular. Avaliados parâmetros clínicos, comorbidades, dados demográficos, complicações durante a internação e estado nutricional. Dados coletados por meio de entrevista, aplicação do questionário Avaliação Global Subjetiva (AGS), exame físico e laboratoriais e dados de prontuário. Resultados: Cento e dezessete pacientes com doença vascular periférica avaliados em relação a complicações vasculares durante internação. Mortalidade geral de 7,7% e pacientes desnutridos ou com suspeita de desnutrição eram 39% da amostra Através da análise multivariada, tanto a classificação AGS (OR 6,15 CI 1,092-34,74 P = 0,039) quanto a presença de doença cardíaca (OR 8,51 CI 1,56-47,44 P = 0,015) foram fatores preditores independentes para mortalidade. Pacientes com doença vascular classificados em suspeita de estarem desnutridos ou desnutridos apresentaram chance de ir a óbito durante a internação aumentada em 6,15 vezes, enquanto a cardiopatia elevou essa chance 8,51 vezes. Conclusão: Pacientes internados por complicação de doença vascular periférica apresentam como fatores de risco para mortalidade a desnutrição e a presença de doença cardíaca.(AU)


Patients with peripheral vasculopathy are routinely hospitalized for surgical procedures or clinical treatment due to complications of the underlying disease. The real impact of malnutrition in these patients during hospitalization is still poorly understood. Aim: This study aimed to assess mortality predictors in patients with peripheral vascular disease during hospitalization. Methods: This retrospective observational study evaluate one hundred and seventeen patients over 18 years admitted to the vascular surgery service of a tertiary hospital in the period of June 2013 and August 2014 due to complications of vascular disease. They were assessed for clinical parameters, comorbidities, demographics, complications during hospitalization and nutritional status. Data were collected through interviews, the questionnaire Subjective Global Nutritional Assessment (SGA), laboratory exam and physical examination. Results: One hundred and seventeen patients with peripheral vascular disease were followed during admission due to vascular complications. Overall mortality was 7.7%, and malnourished patients or patients at nutritional risk were 39,0% of the sampled population By multivariate analysis both rating by SGA (OR 6.15, CI 1.092 to 34.74, P = 0.039), the presence of heart disease (OR 8.51 CI 1,56 to 47.44 P = 0.015) were independent predictors of mortality. When the patient was classified as malnourished or suspected of being malnourished by SGA it increased 6.15 times the odds of death during hospitalization, while the presence of heart disease increased by 8.51 times. Conclusion: Patients hospitalized for complications of peripheral vascular disease present as risk factors for mortality: malnutrition and the presence of heart disease. (AU)

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Objective: To determine the prevalence of hepatic steatosis (HS) in children and adolescents with cystic fibrosis (CF) and associate it with nutritional status. Methods: Cross-sectional study with children and adolescents with CF diagnosis. Weight and height were used to calculate the body mass index (BMI) and subsequent classification of the nutritional status. The midarm circumference (MAC), triceps skinfold thickness (TSF) and midarm muscle circumference (MAMC) were used to evaluate body composition. Abdominal ultrasonography was performed for diagnosis of HS. The statistical tests used were Student's t test, Mann-Whitney test and chi-square test with significance level of 5%. Results: 50 patients with CF were evaluated, 18 (36%) were diagnosed with HS (Group A) and 32 (64%) without HS (Group B). The mean age of Group A was 13,2±4,9 years old and Group B 11,7±4,9; for BMI, the value for Group A was 18,0±4,1 and Group B was 15,7±3,8; the TSF of Group A was 8,4±3,5 mm and Group B was 7,0±2,5 mm. For these variables, there was no significant difference between the groups. The mean of MAC and MAMC differed significantly between the groups, being higher in the HS group, with p values of 0,047 and 0,043. Conclusions: The frequency of HS in patients with CF is high and it is not related to malnutrition, according to the parameters of BMI, TSF and MAMC. The values of MAC and MAMC indicated a greater reserve of muscle mass in patients with HS.


RESUMO Objetivo: Determinar a prevalência de esteatose hepática (EH) em crianças e adolescentes com fibrose cística (FC) e associá-la com o estado nutricional. Métodos: Estudo transversal com crianças e adolescentes com diagnóstico de FC. Foram aferidos o peso e a altura para o cálculo do índice de massa corpórea (IMC) e classificação do estado nutricional. A circunferência do braço (CB), a dobra cutânea tricipital (DCT) e a circunferência muscular do braço (CMB) foram empregadas para avaliação da composição corporal. A ultrassonografia abdominal foi realizada para o diagnóstico de EH. Os testes estatísticos empregados foram o teste t de Student, o teste de Mann-Whitney e o teste do qui-quadrado, com nível de significância de 5%. Resultados: Dos 50 pacientes avaliados, 18 (36%) apresentaram EH (Grupo A) e 32 (64%) não (Grupo B). Para as médias de idade (Grupo A: 13,3±5,0 anos; e Grupo B: 11,7±5,0 anos), IMC (Grupo A: 18,0±4,1; e Grupo B: 15,7±3,8) e DCT (Grupo A: 8,4±3,5 mm; e Grupo B: 7,0±2,5 mm), não houve diferença significativa entre os grupos. A média da CB e da CMB diferiram significativamente entre os grupos, sendo mais elevada no grupo com EH, com valores p respectivos de 0,047 e 0,043. Conclusões: É alta a frequência de EH em pacientes com FC e ela não está relacionada com a desnutrição, segundo os parâmetros de IMC, DCT e CMB. Os valores de CB e CMB indicaram maior reserva de massa muscular nos pacientes com EH.

ABSTRACT

A avaliação do estado nutricional dos idosos possibilita uma intervenção adequada, a fim de evitar ou minimizar agravos à saúde que comprometam a capacidade funcional dessas pessoas. Nessa perspectiva, o trabalho apresentado neste artigo teve como objetivo verificar o estado nutricional e hábitos alimentares da população idosa do estado do Piauí. Foram utilizados dados de acesso público disponíveis no SISVAN Web referentes à avaliação nutricional realizada nos anos de 2014 a 2018. Observou-se aumento da prevalência de sobrepeso naquela população e uma diminuição do número de pessoas com baixo peso. Quando avaliados por sexo, as mulheres apresentaram maiores percentuais de excesso de peso em todos aqueles anos. O perfil do consumo alimentar mostrou que a maioria dos idosos consome alimentos in natura como frutas, verduras e feijão, e que, entre os que participaram da amostra, poucos fizeram uso de alimentos ultraprocessados. Por fim, cabe ressaltar a importância da avaliação do quadro de saúde da população como forma de subsídio para o planejamento de ações de saúde, dessa forma alocando melhor os recursos e possibilitando uma atuação eficaz dos que trabalham na área da saúde.


The evaluation of the nutritional status of the elderly allows the appropriate nutritional intervention avoiding or minimizing health problems that cause damage on their functional capacity. From this perspective, the study presented in this article aimed to verify the nutritional status and eating habits of the elderly population of the state of Piauí, Brazil. We used public access data available in the SISVAN Web regarding the nutritional evaluation carried out from 2014 to 2018. The data revealed an increase in the prevalence of overweight in that population and a reduction of the number of elderly with low weight. When evaluated by sex, women presented higher percentages of overweight in all those years. The food consumption profile showed that the majority of the eldery population consumes fresh foods such as fruits, vegetables and beans and only a few of participants of the sample consumed ultra-processed foods. Finally, the importance of the evaluation of the health of the population as a form of incentive to plan health actions is highlighted, so that the resources can be more competently allocated and the health care workers can act efficiently and effectively.


La evaluación del estado nutricional de las personas mayores permite una intervención nutricional adecuada evitando o minimizando los problemas de salud que comprometen su capacidad funcional. Desde esta perspectiva, el estudio presentado en este artículo tuvo como objetivo verificar el estado nutricional y los hábitos alimenticios de la población anciana del estado de Piauí, Brasil. Utilizamos los datos de acceso público disponibles en el SISVAN Web con respecto a la evaluación nutricional realizada desde los años 2014 hasta 2018. Se observó un aumento en la prevalencia del sobrepeso en laquella población y una disminución en el número de personas que tenían bajo peso. Cuando fueron evaluados por sexo, las mujeres presentaron porcentajes más altos de sobrepeso en todos aquellos años. El perfil del consumo de alimentos mostró que la mayoría de los ancianos consumía alimentos frescos como frutas, verduras y frijol, y pocos participantes de la muestra habían consumido alimentos ultraprocesados. Por fin, debe ser destacada la importancia de la evaluación de la salud de la población como una forma de incentivo para la planificación de acciones de salud, asignando así mejores recursos y posibilitando una actuación de los trabajadores de la salud eficiente y eficaz.

ABSTRACT

La crisis por COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) puede convertirse en una catástrofe alimentaria para Latinoamérica, aumentando las personas que padecen hambre de 135 a 265 millones, especialmente en Venezuela, Guatemala, Honduras, Haití y El Salvador, que ya enfrentaban crisis económicas y sanitarias. Este manuscrito presenta la posición de un grupo de expertos latinoamericanos sobre las recomendaciones de consumo y/o suplementación con vitamina A, C, D, zinc, hierro, folatos y micronutrientes múltiples, en contextos de desnutrición, para grupos vulnerables: mujeres embarazadas y lactantes, niñas y niños menores de 5 años y adultos mayores. Las recomendaciones buscan disminuir el impacto potencial que tendrá COVID-19 en el estado nutricional, durante la pandemia. La posición surge de la discusión de dichos expertos con base a la revisión de evidencia científica actual para estos grupos vulnerables. Está dirigida a tomadores de decisiones, encargados de políticas públicas, personal de salud y organismos de la sociedad civil. Después de la lactancia materna y una dieta suficiente en cantidad y calidad, la suplementación con los micronutrientes presentados, puede contribuir a prevenir y tratar enfermedades virales, reforzar el sistema inmune y reducir complicaciones. La lactancia materna con medidas de higiene respiratoria, el suministro de múltiples micronutrientes en polvo para niños desde los 6 meses hasta los 5 años y el aporte de hierro y folatos o micronutrientes múltiples para la embarazada, son estrategias comprobadas y eficaces que deben seguirse implementando en tiempos de COVID-19. Para los adultos mayores la suplementación con vitamina C, D y zinc puede estar indicada(AU)


The COVID-19 crisis (SARS-CoV-2) might transform into a food catastrophe in Latin America and would increase the number of people suffering from hunger from 135 to 265 million, particularly in Venezuela, Guatemala, Honduras, Haiti and El Salvador, already facing economic and health crises. This manuscript presents the position of a group of Latin American experts in nutrition for establishing the recommendations for consumption and / or supplementation with vitamin A, C, D, zinc, iron, folates and multiple micronutrients, in undernutrition contexts, for vulnerable population of pregnant and lactating women, children under 5 years and the elderly. The recommendations seek to decrease the potential impact that COVID-19 will have on nutritional status during the pandemic. The position arises from the discussion of the experts based on the review of current scientific evidence for these vulnerable groups. It aims to reach stakeholders, public policy makers, health personnel and civil society organizations. Only after breastfeeding and a sufficient diet in terms of quantity and quality, a supplementation with the micronutrients mentioned above can help prevent and treat viral diseases, strengthen the immune system and even reduce complications. Breastfeeding with respiratory hygiene measures, the provision of multiple micronutrients powders for children from 6 moths to 5 years of age and the supply of iron and folates or multiple micronutrients tablets for pregnant women are proven and effective strategies that must continue to be implemented during COVID-19 pandemic. For older adults, supplementation with vitamin C, D and zinc might be indicated(AU)

ABSTRACT

Los oligoelementos son importantes constituyentes nutricionales de las hierbas comestibles. Se colectaron 11 especies, nueve nativas (Amaranthus hybridus, Cnidoscolus aconitifolius, Crotalaria longirostrata, Dysphania ambrosioides, Lycianthes synanthera, Sechium edule, Solanum americanum, S. nigrescens, S. wendlandii) y dos introducidas (Moringa oleifera, Spinacea oleracea) en dos regiones de Guatemala. Se prepararon muestras de la hierba seca, cocida y de caldo de hierba fresca. Se cuantificaron por espectrofotometría de absorción atómica los macro (N, P, K) y oligoelementos (Ca, Mg, Na, Cu, Zn, Mn), taninos por espectrofotometría y oxalatos por permanganimetría. El contenido de oligoelementos es diverso, para Zn, la hierba control S. oleracea contienen buena cantidad (90-140 ppm); de las nativas D. ambrosioides (130-160 ppm) y A. hybridus (70-80 ppm) tienen la mayor cantidad. Respecto a Fe las hierbas control tienen buena composición (S. oleracea, 220-280 ppm y M. oleifera, 105-135 ppm); de las nativas A. hybridus (90-240 ppm), C. aconitifolius (75-185 ppm) y L. synanthera (75-140 ppm) tienen buenas concentraciones. Se encontraron niveles elevados de oxalatos en S. oleracea (67.30 (5.51) mg/g), L. synanthera (56.30 (9.67) mg/g) y S. nigrescens (33.6 (5.48) mg/g); en las demás hierbas se encontraron niveles menores. Los niveles de taninos fueron bajos (0.1-0.8 mg/g) para todas las especies. Se demuestra que cuatro especies nativas tienen un buen contenido de oligoelementos y presentan valores menores de antinutricionales que los controles.


Trace elements are important nutritional constituents from edible herbs. Eleven species were collected in two regions of Guatemala, nine native (Amaranthus hybridus, Cnidoscolus aconitifolius, Crotalaria longirostrata, Dysphania ambrosioides, Lycianthes synanthera, Sechium edule, Solanum americanum, S. nigrescens, S. wendlandii) and two introduced (Moringa oleifera, Spinacea oleracea). Dry, cooked and broth samples were prepared. By atomic absorption spectrometry, macro (N, P, K) and trace elements (Ca, Mg, Na, Cu, Zn, Mn) were quantified, tannins by spectrophotometry, and oxalates by permanganometry. Trace elements content is diverse, for Zn, control herb S. oleracea contained high quantity (90-140 ppm); from the natives D. ambrosioides (130-160 ppm) and A. hybridus (70-80 ppm) contained high amounts. For Fe, control herbs had high composition (S. oleracea, 220-280 ppm, M. oleifera, 105-135 ppm); from the natives A. hybridus (90-240 ppm), C. aconitifolius (75-185 ppm) and L. synanthera (75-140 ppm) had the highest amounts. High levels of oxalates were demonstrated in S. oleracea (67.30 (5.48) mg/g), L. synanthera (56.30 (9.67) mg/g), and S. nigrescens (33.6 (5.48) mg/g); from the others levels.

ABSTRACT

Introducción: la Organización Mundial de la Salud considera la obesidad una epidemia global. En la actualidad es un creciente e importante problema de salud pública al ser un factor común de riesgo para patologías crónicas. La obesidad infantil es una enfermedad en la que ha sido difícil lograr enfoques terapéuticos eficaces y resultados mantenidos, por lo que es recomendable que su tratamiento sea afrontado de forma interdisciplinar siendo el primer eslabón la atención primaria. Objetivo: determinar la prevalencia de obesidad y sobrepeso en niños de 2 a 4 años en la guardería número 001 de Veracruz. Métodos: estudio descriptivo, transversal a través de la evaluación antropométrica peso, talla, índice de masa corporal (IMC) a preescolares inscritos en la guardería número 001 del Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social de Veracruz, de junio a agosto de 2016. Fue estratificado a niños del área de maternal con edad de 2 a 4 años, ambos sexos, esta clasificación se realizó de acuerdo a criterios percentiles establecidos por IMC para la edad de acuerdo a la OMS y se utilizó el programa OMS Anthro V.3.2.2. Resultados: la prevalencia de obesidad, de acuerdo con el IMC, fue del 7.45%, sobrepeso en un 8.51%, riesgo de desnutrición en un 58.51% y desnutrición de 17.02%. Conclusión: nuestro estudio muestra una considerable prevalencia del estado nutricio alterado, predominantemente desnutridos, lo que contribuye al conocimiento de la situación de esta población.


Introduction: The World Health Organization considers obesity as a global epidemic. At present it is a growing and important public health problem as it is a common risk factor for chronic pathologies. Childhood obesity is a disease in which it has been difficult to achieve effective therapeutic approaches and results maintained, so it is advisable that their treatment be addressed in an interdisciplinary way being the first link primary care. Objective: To determine the prevalence of obesity and overweight in children aged 2 to 4 years in kindergarten number 001 of Veracruz. Methods: Preschool children enrolled in day kindergarten number 001 of the Mexican Social Security Institute of Veracruz, from June to August, 2016. It was a cross-sectional study through anthropometric evaluation (weight, height, BMI) of children from the maternal area with Age 2 to 4 years, both sexes, this classification was performed according to percentile criteria established by BMI for age according to WHO and WHO program was used Anthro V.3.2.2. Results: The prevalence of obesity was 7.45% according to BMI, overweight in 8.51%, risk of malnutrition in 58.51% and malnutrition 17.02%.

ABSTRACT

INTRODUÇÃO: A prevalência da desnutrição infantil vem diminuindo em todo o mundo, mas ainda acomete milhões de crianças, especialmente indígenas. Devido ao elevado número de doenças infecciosas associadas à desnutrição, a antibioticoterapia faz parte da terapêutica recomendada. OBJETIVO: Observar os casos de desnutrição entre crianças indígenas e não indígenas hospitalizadas e a terapêutica empregada durante o tratamento. MÉTODOS: Estudo de coorte retrospectivo, farmacoepidemiológico, realizado com informações extraídas de prontuários arquivados do período de janeiro de 2012 a dezembro de 2014 de um hospital público. RESULTADOS: Participaram 166 crianças, sendo o número de crianças indígenas aproximadamente seis vezes maior do que não indígenas. Houve maior prevalência entre lactentes e crianças com idade inferior a um ano apresentaram mais chances de serem internadas por desnutrição. Os diagnósticos de desnutrição mais vistos foram os inespecíficos, com uma proporção significativa de óbitos relacionados ao diagnóstico E43. As infecções mais comuns foram do sistema digestório e respiratório. Crianças indígenas tiveram quase cinco vezes mais chances de apresentarem infecção respiratória. A maior proporção recebeu até três antibióticos, havendo crianças que receberam mais que sete antibióticos diferentes durante o período de internação. CONCLUSÃO: A população infantil deve ser acompanhada por meio de inquéritos que possam subsidiar políticas de saúde que atendam suas necessidades. É necessária a capacitação dos profissionais envolvidos no cuidado da criança desnutrida, recursos materiais e financeiros, a fim diminuir o número de diagnósticos inespecíficos e evitar o uso indiscriminado de antibióticos, sendo imprescindível uma política de controle efetiva no uso da politerapia antimicrobiana.


INTRODUCTION: The prevalence of child malnutrition is declining worldwide, but still affects millions of children, especially indigenous people. Due to the high number of infectious diseases associated with malnutrition, antibiotic therapy is part of the recommended therapy. OBJECTIVE: To observe the cases of malnutrition among hospitalized indigenous and non-indigenous children and the therapy used during treatment. METHODS: Retrospective cohort study, pharmacoepidemiological, carried out with information extracted from medical records filed from January 2012 to December 2014 of a public hospital. RESULTS: 166 children participated, with the number of indigenous children being approximately six times higher than that of nonindigenous children. There was a higher prevalence among infants and children under one year of age who were more likely to be hospitalized for malnutrition. The most frequent diagnoses of malnutrition were nonspecific, with a significant proportion of deaths related to diagnosis E43. The most common infections were of the digestive and respiratory system. Indigenous children were almost five times more likely to have respiratory infection. The highest proportion received up to three antibiotics, with children receiving more than seven different antibiotics during the hospitalization period. CONCLUSION: The child population must be accompanied by surveys that can subsidize health policies that meet their needs. It is necessary to train the professionals involved in the care of malnourished children, material and financial resources, in order to reduce the number of non-specific diagnoses and to avoid the indiscriminate use of antibiotics, a policy of effective control in the use of antimicrobial polytherapy is essential.

ABSTRACT

OBJETIVO: Conocer el estado nutricional y la terapia nutricional recibida durante la internación de los pacientes sometidos a TCPH. MATERIAL Y MÉTODOS: Estudio observacional, de corte transversal, comprendido en el período de enero de 2012 a octubre de 2017. Se incluyeron 100 pacientes mayores de 15 años internados en la unidad de trasplante de médula ósea, que se encontraban realizando tratamiento acondicionante y posterior TCPH, que respondieron voluntariamente al interrogatorio realizado por el Servicio de Nutrición. En una base de datos se registró el estado nutricional y el tipo de terapia nutricional, con los motivos de indicación, la duración y las causas de finalización de la misma. RESULTADOS: De la totalidad de los pacientes, el 84% se mantuvo con alimentación oral exclusiva, adecuándose la dieta a la sintomatología referida por el paciente; y de éstos, el 62% (52 pacientes) tuvieron indicación de suplementos orales como complemento. Sólo 16 pacientes tuvieron indicación de NP. La mediana de duración de NP fue de 9 días (IIC 6-24,5) CONCLUSIONES: La mayoría de los pacientes no presentó desnutrición a su ingreso, pero a pesar de ello, hubo un gran número de pacientes que requirió el uso de alguna terapia nutricional, lo que denota la importancia del monitoreo diario de estos pacientes a pesar de no presentar riesgo nutricional al ingreso.


OBJECTIVE: To know the nutritional status and nutritional therapy received during hospitalization of patients undergoing TCPH. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Observational, cross-sectional study, included in the period from January 2012 to October 2017. We included 100 patients older than 15 years admitted to the bone marrow transplant unit, who were undergoing conditioning treatment and subsequent TCPH, who voluntarily responded to the interrogation conducted by the Nutrition Service. In a database, the nutritional status and type of nutritional therapy were recorded, with the reasons for indication, the duration and the causes of the end of it. RESULTS: Of the totality of the patients, 84% remained with exclusive oral feeding, adapting the diet to the symptomatology referred by the patient; and of these, 62% (52 patients) had an indication for oral supplements as a complement. Only 16 patients had an NP indication. The median duration of NP was 9 days (IIC 6-24.5) CONCLUSIONS: The majority of patients did not present malnutrition at admission, but despite this, there was a large number of patients that required the use of some nutritional therapy, which indicates the importance of daily monitoring of these patients despite not present nutritional risk to income.

ABSTRACT

Malnutrition is associated with morbidity and mortality in patients with heart failure (HF). Thus, it is essential to apply reliable indicators to assess the nutritional status of these individuals. Objective: To evaluate the thickness of the adductor pollicis muscle (APM) in patients with HF as an indicator of somatic protein status and correlate the obtained values with conventionally used parameters and electrical bioimpedance (EBI) markers. Methods: Cross-sectional study with patients with HF undergoing regular outpatient treatment. APM thickness was measured in the dominant arm, and the values obtained were classified according to gender and age. The anthropometric parameters assessed included the body mass index (BMI) and specific parameters to assess the muscle (arm muscle circumference [AMC] and arm muscle area [AMA]). Values of phase angle (PA), standard PA (SPA), and lean mass were obtained by EBI. Statistical analyses were performed with the software Statistical Package for the Social Sciences, version 19, using unpaired Student's t, Mann-Whitney, or one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) tests for comparisons between groups, as appropriate. The correlation between variables of interest was performed using Pearson's or Spearman's correlation coefficient, as adequate. The level of significance was set at 5%. Results: About 70% of the 74 patients evaluated were classified as malnourished according to the APM thickness. Values of AMC, AMA, and lean mass correlated positively with APM thickness (p < 0.005). The APM thickness also correlated positively with PA and SPA (r = 0.49, p < 0.001 and r = 0.31, p = 0.008, respectively). Conclusion: Patients with HF presented a high frequency of protein malnutrition when APM thickness was used as an indicator of nutritional status. APM thickness values correlated with conventional measures of somatic protein evaluation and may be related to the prognosis of these patients, since they correlated positively with PA and SPA

ABSTRACT

Introducción. Los niños con cardiopatías congénitas (CC) presentan malnutrición por déficit; una posible consecuencia a largo plazo es la talla baja. Objetivo. Describir la presencia de talla baja en niños con CC al momento de su cardiocirugía. Población y métodos. Estudio retrospectivo. Se incluyeron niños sometidos a cardiocirugía con circulación extracorpórea en 2009-2013. Se excluyeron prematuros, con síndromes genéticos u otra enfermedad con compromiso nutricional. Se estudiaron variables demográficas, diagnóstico cardiológico, cirugía de ingreso y evaluación antropométrica según estándares de la Organización Mundial de la Salud; se definió talla baja como ZT/E < -2 desvíos estándar, según sexo. Resultados. Se estudiaron 640niños; 361 varones (el 56,4 %); mediana de edad: 8 meses (RIC: 1,9; 34,6); 66 niños tuvieron > 1 cirugía; 27 de ellos (el 40,9 %), con hipoplasia del ventrículo izquierdo. Fueron CC cianóticas 358 (el 55,9 %), con fisiología univentricular 196 (el 30,6 %). La mediana de ZT/E fue -0,9 (RIC: -1,9; -0,1); presentaron talla baja 135 (el 21,1 %), el 11 % en neonatos y el 24,1 % en mayores de un mes. Se encontró mayor frecuencia de talla baja en reparación completa de canal atrioventricular en 4/6 niños, reparación de tetralogía de Fallot en 15/39, Glenn en hipoplasia del ventrículo izquierdo en 8/25, cierre de comunicación interventricular en 34/103. No se encontró asociación ni diferencia con significación estadística entre talla baja y cianosis ni según fisiología univentricular. Conclusiones. Existe una alta frecuencia de talla baja en niños con CC, con diferencias según el diagnóstico cardiológico y la cardiocirugía realizada.


Introduction. Children with congenital heart diseases (CHDs) suffer from malnutrition because of nutritional deficiencies, being short stature the possible long-term consequence. Objective. To describe the presence of short stature among children undergoing cardiac surgery for CHDs. Population and methods. Retrospective study. Children undergoing cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass pump between 2009 and 2013 were included. Preterm infants, carriers of genetic syndromes or other disease with nutritional compromise were excluded. Demographic data, type of CHD, admission surgery and anthropometric assessment using the WHO standards were studied. Short stature was defined as lenght/height for age Z score < -2 standard deviations, by sex. Results. A total of 640 children were studied; 361 (56.4 %) were boys; median age: 8 months (IQR: 1.9; 34.6); 66 children underwent > 1 surgery; 27 of them (40.9 %) had hypoplasia of the left ventricle. There were 358 (55.9 %) infants with cyanotic CHDs, 196 (30.6 %) with univentricular physiology. The median HAZ was -0.9 (IQR: -1.9; -0.1); 135 (21.1 %) had a short stature, 11 % of newborn infants and 24.1 % of older than one month old. A higher frequency of short stature was observed in 4 out of 6 children who underwent complete repair of the atrioventricular canal, in 15 out of 39 infants with repair of tetralogy of Fallot, in 8 out of 25 infants with hypoplasia of the left ventricle subjected to Glenn procedure, and in 34 out of 103 with closure of the ventricular septal defect. No association or statistically significant difference was found between short stature and cyanosis or univentricular physiology. Conclusions. There is a high frequency of short stature among children with CHDs, with differences according to the type of CHD and cardiac surgery performed.

MÉTODOS: se realizó un estudio observacional de corte transversal, con una muestra de n=4885 niños menores de 5 años, estratificada para las 5 macrorregiones de Cochabamba, aplicando el Sistema de Vigilancia Nutricional Comunitario. Las mediciones antropométricas se ingresaron al Software WHO-Anthro v3.1.0, para el cálculo de Z-score y su categorización. Se presentan proporciones e IC-95%; Chi2 para la asociación entre variables categóricas, correlación de Pearson para la interacción entre variables cuantitativas y regresión logística multivariada para el cálculo de Odds Ratio (OR) ajustados. RESULTADOS: encontramos una prevalencia de 22,1% para DNT-Crónica; 6,0% para DNT-Global; 6,1% para DNT-Aguda; 16,4% de probable retraso de crecimiento del perímetro cefálico y 10,8% con reserva energética inadecuada. La prevalencia de sobrepeso y obesidad fue del 16,5% para el indicador peso/talla; 17,6% según el IMC/edad y 10,8% para el PMB/Edad. El 66,03% de los niños con talla baja presentaban sobrepeso u obesidad. La prevalencia de desnutrición y obesidad fue mayor en la región andina, el grupo etario más afectado por la obesidad fueron los niños de 1 a 3 años. CONCLUSIÓN: existe una asociación estadísticamente significativa entre la talla baja y la presencia de obesidad; esta doble carga de malnutrición infantil fue más prevalente en la región andina.


A concomitant presence of chronically malnourished (stunted) and obesity, is known as the double burden of childhood malnutrition, is observed more frequently in low and middle-income countries. OBJECTIVE: to analyze the prevalence of underweight and childhood obesity in Cochabamba, Bolivia. METHODS: a cross-sectional study was conducted, with a sample of n=4885 children under 5 years, stratified for the 5 macro regions from Cochabamba, applying the Community Nutritional Surveillance System. The anthropometric measurements were entered into the WHO-Anthro Software v3.1.0, to calculate the Z-score and its nutritional status categorization. Proportions and IC-95% are presented; Chi2 to associations between categorical variables, Pearson correlation for the interaction between quantitative variables, and multivariate logistic regression for adjusted Odds Ratio (OR). RESULTS: we found a prevalence of 22,1% for estunted; 6,0% for global underweight; 6,1% for acute underweight; 16,4% probable delay of growth of the cephalic perimeter and 10,8% with inadequate energy reserve. The prevalence of overweight and obesity was 16,5% for the weight/height indicator; 17,6% according to the BMI/age and 10.8% for the MUAC/age. 66,03% of stunted children were overweight or obese. The prevalence of underweight and obesity was higher in the Andean region, the age group most affected by obesity were children from 1 to 3 years. CONCLUSION: there is a statistically significant association between stunted and obesity; this double burden of child malnutrition was more prevalent in the Andean region.

ABSTRACT

Background: Malnutrition is associated with morbidity and mortality in patients with heart failure (HF). Thus, it is essential to apply reliable indicators to assess the nutritional status of these individuals. Objective: To evaluate the thickness of the adductor pollicis muscle (APM) in patients with HF as an indicator of somatic protein status and correlate the obtained values with conventionally used parameters and electrical bioimpedance (EBI) markers. Methods: Cross-sectional study with patients with HF undergoing regular outpatient treatment. APM thickness was measured in the dominant arm, and the values obtained were classified according to gender and age. The anthropometric parameters assessed included the body mass index (BMI) and specific parameters to assess the muscle (arm muscle circumference [AMC] and arm muscle area [AMA]). Values of phase angle (PA), standard PA (SPA), and lean mass were obtained by EBI. Statistical analyses were performed with the software Statistical Package for the Social Sciences, version 19, using unpaired Student's t, Mann-Whitney, or one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) tests for comparisons between groups, as appropriate. The correlation between variables of interest was performed using Pearson's or Spearman's correlation coefficient, as adequate. The level of significance was set at 5%. Results: About 70% of the 74 patients evaluated were classified as malnourished according to the APM thickness. Values of AMC, AMA, and lean mass correlated positively with APM thickness (p < 0.005). The APM thickness also correlated positively with PA and SPA (r = 0.49, p < 0.001 and r = 0.31, p = 0.008, respectively). Conclusion: Patients with HF presented a high frequency of protein malnutrition when APM thickness was used as an indicator of nutritional status. APM thickness values correlated with conventional measures of somatic protein evaluation and may be related to the prognosis of these patients, since they correlated positively with PA and SPA
