  • COVID-19 and Nutrition: Summary of Official Recommendations

      Authors: Detopoulou; Paraskevi; Tsouma, Christina; Papamikos, Vassilios
      Abstract: imageMedical nutrition therapy may have a key role in the COVID-19 pandemic. Given the spread of misinformation, the present review organizes and summarizes nutrition recommendations regarding COVID-19, serving as a reference guide for health professionals. Nineteen official recommendations were included of international, US, Asian, European, Canadian, and Australian origin on (i) lactation, (ii) nutrition during quarantine, (iii) nutrition in high-risk groups, (iv) nutrition for recovery at home, and (v) nutrition in hospital. Breastfeeding is encouraged, and the role of hydration and the adoption of a healthy diet during quarantine are emphasized. Older people and/or people with comorbidities should be checked for malnutrition and follow a healthy diet. For patients recovering at home, hydration, protein, and energy intake should be ensured. For hospitalized patients, early feeding with a priority on enteral route is recommended.

  • Immunomodulatory Effects of Vitamin D and Prevention of Respiratory Tract
           Infections and COVID-19

      Authors: Shoemaker; Marni E.; Huynh, Linda M.; Smith, Cory M.; Mustad, Vikkie A.; Duarte, Maria O.; Cramer, Joel T.
      Abstract: imageLittle is known about potential protective factors for severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), referred to as COVID-19. Suboptimal vitamin D status is a risk factor for immune dysfunction, respiratory tract infections (RTIs), and viral infections. Supplementation of vitamin D (2000–4000 IU) has decreased incidence and complications from RTIs, respiratory distress syndrome, and pneumonia and may be beneficial in high-risk populations. Given the possible link between low vitamin D status and RTIs, such as COVID-19, this review examined whether vitamin D supplementation can be supported as a nutritional strategy for reducing risk of infection, complications, and mortality from COVID-19 and found that the relationship between vitamin D and RTIs warrants further exploration.

  • Challenges to Provision of Adequate Medical Nutrition Therapy in a
           Critically Ill COVID-19 Patient Fed in the Prone Position

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Brown; Terry; Touger-Decker, Riva; Roberts, Susan; Reed, Diane; Matarese, Laura
      Abstract: imageAdults with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) may experience enteral nutrition (EN) intolerance. They often require mechanical ventilation and other specialized management including prone positioning. There is a controversy as to whether patients fed in prone position experience more EN intolerance than when they are in supine position. This narrative review synthesizes the literature published between 2001 and 2021 in adults with ARDS who are fed EN while in the prone position to determine safety and tolerance. A case of an adult patient with Down syndrome who developed ARDS due to COVID-19 and required EN while in prone position is presented.

  • Dietetics Students' Perceptions of Academic and Health Impacts of the
           COVID-19 Pandemic

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Coakley; Kathryn E.; Gonzales-Pacheco, Diana
      Abstract: imageThis study examined dietetics students' perceptions of coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) pandemic impacts on academics and mental and physical health. Data were collected via a cross-sectional online survey in February to March 2021 from undergraduate dietetics students across the United States. Among the 526 students who participated, during the fall 2020 semester, 87% experienced increased stress, 64% reported mental health concerns, and 32% reported disordered eating. Sixty-two percent agreed their program met educational needs; however, 62% also agreed COVID-19 negatively impacted the quality of education and 49% agreed to learning less than normal. Pandemic impacts are critical to consider as students enter dietetic internships and start careers.

      Authors: Mousavi Baigi; Seyede Fatemeh; Moradi, Fatemeh; Vasseifard, Fatemeh; Mohammad Abadi, Fahimeh; Mazaheri Habibi, Mohammad Reza
      Abstract: imageStudies have shown that training is effective in the prevention of obesity and overweight. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of nutrition training on improving the nutritional knowledge of students. This study was conducted with a before-after study design on 35 students in 2019. A questionnaire was used to collect the required data and participants utilized a mobile application (app) to increase their nutrition knowledge. Implementation of this app had a positive effect on increasing all 3 types of nutritional knowledge. The results showed that the use of the app improved nutritional knowledge of the study population.

  • Comparison of an Online Dietary Assessment Tool (the “Boden Food
           Plate”) With 24-Hour Dietary Recalls

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Bessell; Erica; Meroni, Alice; Jualim, Nyssa; Fuller, Nicholas R.
      Abstract: imageWe compared the “Boden Food Plate,” an online dietary assessment tool, with 24-hour recalls. Forty-two adults with body mass index of 25 kg/m2 or more completed 2 to 3 days' intake on the “Boden Food Plate” and 2 dietitian-administered 24-hour recalls. The mean differences between the 2 methods for energy, macronutrients, and micronutrients were predominantly not statistically significant. Moderate to high correlation was observed between the 2 methods, with the exception of protein and iron intakes. Bland-Altman plots for energy, carbohydrates, fat, and protein indicated wide limits of agreement between the 2 methods. The “Boden Food Plate” is comparable with 24-hour recall but with wide limits of agreement.

  • Knowledge, Attitudes, and Practices Toward Iron-Deficiency Anemia Among
           Jordanian Women: A Cross-sectional Study

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Al-Qerem; Walid; Jarab, Anan S.; Qarqaz, Raghda; Ling, Jonathan; Al Hayek, Mohammad
      Abstract: imageThis is a cross-sectional Web-based study that aims to assess the knowledge, attitudes, and practices (KAP) of the Jordanian women toward iron-deficiency anemia. Participants were invited to complete a questionnaire via multipurpose Facebook groups. In total, 4110 women completed the questionnaire. Of these, 15.9% had never heard of iron-deficiency anemia. The KAP scores were calculated for the remaining 3457 participants and variables that influenced these scores were determined. The factors that influenced KAP scores were monthly income and education/working field (P < .01). There was a positive association between age and attitude score. The results indicate that there is a need to improve Jordanian women's KAP toward iron-deficiency anemia.
