Abstract

Hip fractures are cracks or breaks in the top of the thigh bone (femur) close to the hip joint. They're usually caused by a fall or an injury to the side of the hip, but may occasionally be caused by a health condition, such as cancer that weakens the hip bone. Falls are very common among older people, especially in people aged 80 and over, who may have reduced vision or mobility and balance problems. Hip fractures are also more common in women, who are more likely to get osteoporosis, a condition which makes bones weak and fragile.Symptoms include pain, not being able to lift or move one or both legs, not being able to stand, one leg appearing shorter than the other and bruising and swelling around the hip.

Abstract

The pancreas plays an important role in the digestion and absorption of food and nutrients by secreting digestive enzymes that help to break down food.1 It also secretes hormones that regulate how energy is stored and used by the body. Both pancreatitis and pancreatic insufficiency frequently result in under-nutrition due to a reduced dietary intake, poor digestion and low absorption of nutrients from food.

Gastrointestinal (GI) intolerance is much more common than food allergy and has distinctly different causes and symptoms.1 GI intolerance happens when the digestive system cannot process some foods, causing discomfort.1 Unlike a food allergy, it does not involve an immune system reaction - in fact, people with GI intolerance can usually tolerate small amounts of these foods without experiencing any uncomfortable symptoms.1

Abstract

Malnutrition is a common problem among patients undergoing surgery, and it is associated with post-operative complications and increased length of stay in hospital.1 Obtaining adequate nutrition before and after surgery is therefore vitally important for a number of reasons. Undernutrition can weaken the immune system, which could lead to complications such as a chest infection. It can also cause tiredness and/or depression, which can lead to decreased mobility. Nutritional support can reduce post-operative complications and time spent in hospital.

Abstract

Cancer is a result of the uncontrolled growth of cells in the human body. It will affect around 1 in 2 people in the UK,1 with long-term outcomes largely dependent on the type of cancer, and how early it is detected and treated. People with cancer are at risk of not obtaining the nutrition they need, which may be the result of the disease itself, or side effects of common treatments such as surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy.2 It can also cause a loss of appetite and alter dietary needs.2 Potential side effects of cancer may include a change in the body’s ability to break down and utilise carbohydrates, protein and fat.2 Cancer treatment side effects can also lead to a dry or sore mouth, changes in how food tastes, and feeling sick, which can all affect food intake.

Cystic fibrosis is an inherited condition and it is estimated that around about 1 in every 25 people in the UK are carriers of cystic fibrosis.1 It affects the internal organs, particularly the lungs and pancreatic duct, which become clogged with mucus. People with cystic fibrosis are prone to chest infections, and other consequences may include poor growth, diabetes and infertility. Symptoms usually become apparent in infancy (but may not be detected until later). They typically include a troublesome cough, recurrent chest infections, diarrhoea or abnormal stools, or poor weight gain..
