Resumen

SUAREZ BORGES, Maribel et al. Nutritional evaluation of patients with cystic fibrosis . MEDISAN [online]. 2013, vol.17, n.4, pp.661-668. ISSN 1029-3019.

A descriptive and prospective study of 11 patients with cystic fibrosis, assisted in the comprehensive department of "Dr. Juan Bruno Zayas Alfonso" Teaching General Hospital in Santiago from Cuba was carried out from May, 2011 to February, 2012, to evaluate the status and the nutritional risk index, according to the evaluation protocol for these cases, from the Consensus of North America (2005). The statistical method for comparison of ratios was used. Most of those affected were classified as undernourished (63.6%), all presented nutritional risk due to underweight and 3 had severe protein energy malnutrition (27.6%); it was also obtained that more than half had higher morbidity and admissions in the evaluated period. Finally, the method of nutritional evaluation was very useful to determine degree and type of malnutrition, because the early diagnosis and the opportune nutritional intervention improve the life quality.
