Each of these nutrients performs specific functions that are essential for the health of our cells and their harmonious functioning. Data suggest that many people have an inadequate daily intake of micronutrients, even when nutritious food is more easily available. It has since been established that the complex, integrated immune system needs multiple specific micronutrients, including vitamins A, D, C, E, B6, and B12, folate, zinc, iron, copper, and selenium, which play vital, often synergistic roles at every stage of the immune response.</p> Dian Permatasari Copyright (c) 2023 Dian Permatasari Sat, 30 Sep 2023 00:00:00 +0000 Chyme reinfusion therapy using new technology <p>High output double enterostomies (DES) and disease-related malnutrition (DRM) are features of intestinal failure (IF) that require parenteral nutrition (PN) until surgical re-establishment of intestinal continuity.

There is a big difference.</p> Santiago Herrero Copyright (c) 2023 Santiago Herrero Sat, 30 Sep 2023 00:00:00 +0000 Extreme obesity in the intensive care unit <p>Morbid obesity is a highly serious condition that significantly impairs health worldwide. This is especially prominent during the COVID-19 pandemic, as lockdowns and reduced physical activity contributed to the problem. Overweight and obese adults are at a higher risk of various acute and chronic medical conditions, including hypertension, heart disease, diabetes, respiratory problems, certain cancers, gout, and arthritis. While some individuals may have higher muscle or bone mass accounting for excess weight, the majority of those exceeding 20% of their ideal body weight have excessive fat. Disturbingly, obesity rates in the USA have been progressively increasing since the first survey conducted in 1960. Recent data shows that obesity prevalence in the USA is three times higher than in France and one-and-a-half times higher than in England. Given the widespread nature of obesity and its association with numerous diseases, it is not surprising that many obese patients require treatment in the intensive care unit (ICU).</p> Joseph Varon, Najia Hussaini Copyright (c) 2023 Joseph Varon, Najia Hussaini Sat, 30 Sep 2023 00:00:00 +0000 Lactate – from villain to guardian <p>Elevated plasma lactate level is a useful warning sign in patients presenting with a variety of critical illnesses. Our understanding of hyperlactatemia, however, has improved and we can no longer associate lactate itself with any harmful effects. Lactate is a crucial intracellular buffer, and a central molecule in the interorgan exchange of carbon and redox potential. While lactate levels correlate with severity of acidaemia in shock there is little evidence to support the commonly held view that its origin is mainly secondary to anaerobic metabolism because of reduced tissue oxygen delivery.</p> Marek Nalos Copyright (c) 2023 Marek Nalos Sat, 30 Sep 2023 00:00:00 +0000 A study of breakfast pattern in Indonesia, Malaysia, and Philippines <p>The quality of foods taken during breakfast could contribute in shaping diet quality.

Sepsis is also characterized by low thiamine levels, which are associated with illness severity, hyperlactatemia, and poor clinical outcomes. However, caution is needed with interpretation of thiamine blood concentration in critically ill patients.</p> Gil Hardy, William Manzanares Copyright (c) 2023 Gil Hardy, William Manzanares Sat, 30 Sep 2023 00:00:00 +0000 Nutrition and inflammaging : unveiling the impact of diet on healthy aging <p>Aging is a declining process which leads to a poorer state of human health. The process involved immune system, known as immunosenescence, which is a multifactorial and dynamic process, involving both innate and acquired immunity. It is characterized by a progressive reduction in the ability to trigger immune responses against infections and vaccinations and lead to inflammaging. Immunosenescence plays a critical role in most chrocic diseases in older people, therefore, attempts are made to slow down or reverse the process.</p> Niken Puruhita Copyright (c) 2023 Niken Puruhita Sat, 30 Sep 2023 00:00:00 +0000 Home not alone : transition from hospital to home nutrition care, what to consider? <p>Malnutrition is said to be the “skeleton in the hospital closet”, mainly because it is overlooked undiagnosed, and untreated. This applies to the “home closet” as well, often being forgotten in the discharge planning and transition from hospital to home.</p> <p>&nbsp;Family physicians are well-qualified to provide home health care since this requires continuing and comprehensive management in a family context. It is the family physician that can initiate the decision to transition to home care, and is directly involved in the planning and coordination of the services.</p> Eliza Mei Fransisco Copyright (c) 2023 Eliza Mei Fransisco Sat, 30 Sep 2023 00:00:00 +0000 Human milk oligosaccharides (HMOS) for infant health and microbiome development <p>HMO stands HUMAN MILK OLIGOSACCHARIDES, which act as a prebiotic found naturally in breastmilk.
