L'IMPIEGO DEI LIPIDI NELLA PANCREATITE ACUTA

Translated title of the contribution: Lipid administration in acute pancreatitis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Patients with acute pancreatitis take advantage of parenteral nutrition or enteral feeding in the jejunum. Since lipids may have a role in determining the onset of the disease, some concern may arise when clinicians have to decide to include fat as a stable component of the nutritional mixture. We have analyzed this problem, particularly the association of high levels of Triglycerides and acute pancreatitis, the effect of lipids on pancreatic secretion, and the clinical behaviour of the patient receiving artificial nutrition with lipids. When lipid metabolism is normal MCT and LCT represent good substrates when administered at the normal daily dose.
