Total Lymphocyte Count and Serum Albumin as Predictors of Nutritional Risk in Surgical Patients

Abstract: Background: Early detection of changes in nutritional status is important for a better approach to the surgical patient. There are several nutritional measures in clinical practice, but there is not a complete method for determining the nutritional status, so, health professionals should only choose the best method to use. Aim: To evaluate the total lymphocyte count and albumin as predictors of identification of nutritional risk in surgical patients. Methods: Prospective longitudinal study was conducted with… Show more

“…The values of pre-albumin and total lymphocyte were changed when there was malnutrition status in the early stage. [10][11][12] Therefore, NAF was more consistent with the pre-albumin and total lymphocyte count than MNA. So, screening the risk of malnutrition at an early stage was likely to be beneficial for the patients.…”

“…Harmandar et al reported observing a signi cant decrease in CRP levels in patients who achieved the target calorie intake but not in patients who failed to achieve their target calorie intake [13]. Some studies showed that although the initial serum albumin levels were re ective of the baseline nutrition status, serum albumin and serum prealbumin level trends did not correlate with calorie or protein de cits and should not be solely used to assess the adequacy of nutrition delivery [15,16]. Their serum levels are good predictors for the risk of postoperative complications; when they are used with other methods of assessing nutritional status, such as subjective global assessment or the percentage of adequacy of skinfolds, they can be useful for identifying the nutritional risk [16].…”
