Question description

The purpose of this study was to provide an estimate of the extent of malnutrition in community-dwelling people who have Parkinson's disease. The Subjective Global Assessment (SGA) and Patient Generated Subjective Global Assessment (PG-SGA) were used to assess nutritional status in 125 participants who have Parkinson's disease. In addition, body weight, standing or knee height, mid-arm circumference, and waist circumference were measured. There were 19 (15.2%) who were moderately malnourished. The symptoms most influencing intake were loss of appetite, constipation, early satiety, and problems swallowing.

Conclusions

The authors concluded that malnutrition remains under-recognized and undertreated in people who have Parkinson's disease, and that regular screening of nutritional status is needed, with a focus on identifying problems that affect intake so that appropriate interventions can be implemented
