The role of dietary protein deficiency in kwashiorkor is uncertain, although it has been shown not to be involved in the famine oedema of adults. A study of six different diets given to 103 children with oedematous malnutrition showed that the rate of loss of oedema was strongly correlated with the dietary energy intake (r = 0.75) but not with the protein intake (r = 0.03). 66 patients given a very-low protein diet (2.5% protein energy) lost oedema as fast as those given five times as much… Expand
