Use of accelerometer methods for estimating energy expenditure during walking

Accelerometry‐based method for assessing energy expenditure in patients with diabetes during walking Caron et al., JHND Early View Background Monitoring activity‐related energy expenditure (EE) is essential in the management of daily activity and the dietary programme in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D) and must be estimated accurately. Accelerometry‐based equations have frequently used to estimate EE, … Continue reading Use of accelerometer methods for estimating energy expenditure during walking

South Asians in the UK are less compliant with gluten free diets in coeliac disease

Coeliac disease in Caucasian and South Asian patients in the North West of England Adam et al., JHND Early View Background Coeliac disease is an autoimmune enteropathy characterised by mucosal inflammation subsequent to gluten exposure, leading to malabsorption. Treatment is strict dietary control, relying on the patient's ability to maintain lifestyle modifications. The present study aimed … Continue reading South Asians in the UK are less compliant with gluten free diets in coeliac disease

Modified ketogenic diet, as used in the UK and Ireland

Understanding the core principles of a ‘modified ketogenic diet’: a UK and Ireland perspective Martin-McGill et al.,  Background Many centres across the UK and Ireland anecdotally report using a ‘modified ketogenic diet’ (MKD) as a treatment for refractory epilepsy. Although a MKD is within the spectrum of ketogenic diets (KDs), there is little literature reporting upon … Continue reading Modified ketogenic diet, as used in the UK and Ireland

Dietary intake and lifestyle behaviour in different phenotypes of polycystic ovarian syndrome

Dietary intake and lifestyle behaviour in different phenotypes of polycystic ovarian syndrome: a case–control study Amirjani et al., JHND Early View Background The present study aimed to compare dietary intake and lifestyle behaviour in women with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and healthy women. Methods One hundred and sixty healthy women (partner with male infertility) were recruited … Continue reading Dietary intake and lifestyle behaviour in different phenotypes of polycystic ovarian syndrome

Peptide nutrient‐energy dense feeding in infants in PICU is feasible, well tolerated and meets nutritional targets

  Peptide nutrient‐energy dense enteral feeding in critically ill infants: an observational study Marino et al., JHND Early View Background Enteral feeding is challenging in critically ill infants. Target intakes are often not achieved as a result of fluid restriction, procedural interruptions and perceived enteral feeding intolerance. In those infants perceived to have poor feeding tolerance, … Continue reading Peptide nutrient‐energy dense feeding in infants in PICU is feasible, well tolerated and meets nutritional targets
