Metabolic and nutritional consequences of the acute phase response

Visser J. ; Labadarios D. (2002)

Review

An adequate provision of macro- and micronutrients is necessary for maintenance of an optimal nutritional status during the acute phase response (APR) in order to promote wound healing and prevent malnutrition-related complications. Micronutirent provision has been less well studied than macronutrient provision. This review outlines the metabolic response to injury and the interrelated effects of the APR on macro- and micronutrient status so as to provide a rational basis for specialised nutritional support.
