Abstract
Patients with severe dementia, usually have problems in swallowing that leads them to have progressive weight loss. The aim of this study was to evaluate the profile of these nutritionally patients with severe dementia. Nutritionally, n=62 elderly patients were assessed, all in CDR 3-attended the clinic Dementia UNIFESP/EPM, for the year 2013. The results indicate that 50 elderly were malnourished - Weight Md:52.56 kg, height Md:1.55 m, Body Mass Index - BMI Md:21.21 kg/m2, Arm Circumference - AC Md=25, 28 cm, triceps skinfold - TS Md=11.39 mm, Circunferece Muscular Arm - AMB Md=21.70 cm Circumference and Calf - CC Md=30.63 cm, valid for screening of nutritional diagnostic measures. Only 12 patients were normal weight - Weight Md=52.58 kg, height=1.55 m Md, Md BMI=21.32 kg/m2, PCT Md=11.53 cm, AC Md=25.37 cm, AMB Md=21.74 cm and CC Md=30.64. Use beyond the anthropometric data, quality data supply, which indicates a diet low in calories and protein for all patients. Despite the modest sample be concluded that the findings corroborate the literature that emphasizes malnourished in severe stage of the disease, which leads us to invest in early nutrition.
