Nutrition in Cholestatic Liver Disease

AbstractPurpose of ReviewCholestatic liver disease, including primary biliary cholangitis and primary sclerosing cholangitis, can be associated with numerous extrahepatic complications. Of these, malnutrition can negatively impact quality of life in these patients. Achieving nutritional optimization in patients with cholestatic liver disease is an essential component in the overall management of the disease.Recent FindingsThrough various mechanisms, including abnormalities in bile acid metabolism, malabsorption, anorexia, and increased metabolic rate, chronic malnutrition in cholestatic liver disease can lead to vitamin, mineral, and protein deficiencies. This in turn can result in complications including osteoporosis and fractures, coagulopathy, skin, and neurologic changes. In addition, protein deficiency can worsen ascites and encephalopathy and promote sarcopenia, which increases morbidity and mortality. Such sequelae, which are often more pronounced in those with cirrhosis, highlight the importance of addressing nutritional status early on in these patients.SummaryMonitoring and replacing essential vitamins and minerals is crucial in preventing complications associated with nutritional deficiencies. Ensuring adequate caloric and protein intake may reduce the overall morbidity associated with cholestatic liver disease. We herein summarize important concepts and management strategies of optimizing nutrition in cholestatic liver disease.

Conclusions: The study revealed that there was a higher prevalence of vitamin D3 insufficiency in epileptic children receiving valproate monotherapy compared with healthy children. Vitamin D3 supplementation should be given to all epileptic children even before initiation of anti-epileptic drugs. PMID: 32259112 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Li M, Zhao Y, Liu X, Zhang S, Jiang Y, Yang Z Abstract Portal vein tumor thrombus (PVTT) promotes distant metastasis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), which increases the mortality of patients with HCC and PVTT. The aim of the present study was to develop an early risk warning system for distant metastasis of hepatitis B virus (HBV)-associated primary HCC (HBV-HCC) with PVTT. Data from 346 patients (263 and 83 in the modeling and validation cohorts, respectively) who had received primary diagnoses of HBV-HCC and PVTT between January 2012 and June 2015 at Beijing Ditan Hospital (Beijing, China) were retros...

Authors: Martínez-Sánchez SM, Martínez-García TE, Munguía-Izquierdo D Abstract OBJECTIVE: To analyze the clinical, psychopathological, physical, and sleep-related evolution of adolescents with restricting-type of anorexia nervosa (AN-R) after 10 weeks of a daytime hospital program. METHODS: Body composition, physical activity and sleep were measured objectively before and after 10 weeks of treatment. In addition, psychopathology and body image disturbances were measured with a self-report questionnaire. RESULTS: Fourteen female adolescents with AN-R (14.3±1.6 years ...

In this study, the hepatoprotective and hypolipidemic effects of high-polydextrose snack food on Swiss albino mice were investigated. The mice were randomly divided into three groups: control diet, high-fat diet, and high-fat and fiber diet groups. Addition of high-polydextrose snack to the high-fat diet resulted in significant reduction in the liver weight, the accumulation of lipid droplets in liver, and the liver damage of hyperlipidemic mice in comparison with the high-fat diet. The high-polydextrose snack also decreased the content of total triglyceride, cholesterol, and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol as well as ...

Several studies have reported that weight changes could be related to motor symptoms, drug side effects, dysphagia, depression, and/or dementia. Weight loss in PD is not a benign phenomenon and it has several clinical and prognostic implications with increased morbidity and mortality. Thus, it is crucial to determine nutritional changes in PD...
