UNLABELLED BACKGROUND Only protein diet has been used successfully to prevent loss of lean body mass first in post-surgical and then in obese patients. We studied overweight and obese patients receiving short treatments of an exclusively protein-based nutritional solution as 24-hour enteral infusion. METHODS 19,036 patients (age 44.3 ± 13, M:F = 2:5)(More)
BACKGROUND Ketogenic enteral nutrition (KEN) is a modification of the protein sparing modified fast in which a protein solution is introduced with a continuous infusion through a nasogastric tube over 10-days cycles. The aim of the study was to perform a retrospective analysis of the safety, compliance, weight loss and body composition changes after 3(More)
AIM As pointed in ESPEN guidelines on the use of bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA), "body cell mass (BCM) is the protein rich compartment which is affected in catabolic states, and loss of BCM is associated with poor clinical outcome". Whey proteins are known to improve lean mass in many conditions. We retrospectively evaluated the effects of a WP(More)
