To demonstrate a relationship between diarrheal incidence and the onset of hypoalbuminemia developing as a result of acute protein-calorie malnutrition and severe catabolism, we initially studied two patients who had developed severe hypoalbuminemia (less than 2.5 g/dl) and diarrhea on a variety of enteral diets. Each patient was placed on a peptide enteral formula at a rate of infusion equivalent to that used during the previous 24 h. Diarrheal volumes decreased significantly from greater than… CONTINUE READING
