Abstract: Malnutrition was frequent and hand-grip strength seemed to be the most sensitive method for its diagnosis. Calories and protein intakes were inadequate. Considering that the predicted resting energy expenditure was higher than the measured one and the need to offer higher caloric intake, the use of the predicting equation may replace indirect calorimetry.

“…A similar result was obtained by Gottschall et al 10 for patients with cirrhosis; they found that HGS was more sensitive for the detection of malnutrition than BMI. This probably occurred because BMI does not distinguish between lean and fat mass 6 .…”

“…Hence, an individual may often seem to have an appropriate nutritional status (BMI>18.5kg/m 2 ) but have low lean body mass 27 , which can be directly verified by HGS 11 . Moreover, some diseases, such as liver cirrhosis and pulmonary diseases, may cause hydration changes, and consequently affect BMI 10,14,22 .…”

“…The subjective global assessment proposed by Detsky et al 5 has been considered a good approach for subjective assessment of patients with liver disease 6 , but water retention complicates its applicability since the estimated weight loss, which is part of this assessment, becomes impaired 7 .…”

“…Recentemente, CARVALHO e PARISE (8) avaliaram o estado nutricional de 300 pacientes cirróticos adultos e encontraram sinais de desnutrição protéico-calórica em 75,3% dos pacientes avaliados. Outros estudos realizados em nosso país demonstraram que a ingestão calórico-protéica, assim como a proporção de nutrientes, costuma ser inadequada tanto em hepatopatas adultos (15) como em crianças (2) e estes fatores predispõem à desnutrição associados à disfunção hepática. Estudos que avaliam o estado nutricional de pacientes cirróticos são mais freqüentes em adultos, alcoólicos ou não (1,5,7,8,10,19,24,28) , porém há poucos dados de estudos com crianças e adolescentes com hepatopatias crônicas e estes são limitados, devido principalmente ao número pouco expressivo de pacientes (6,9,14,21,31) .…”
