Expert Pearls

Hospitalization - Diet

Diet - 4 of 57 teaching hospitals met all 7 of the U.S. public health services dietary recommendations. [NEJM, November 7, 1996;1466-1467. 26073 (2000)] Summary Interview

Hospitalization - Probiotics

Probiotics use in hospitals may reduce infections, their complications and hospital costs. [Gut, 1998;42:2-7. 29564 (1998)] Summary

Hospitalization - vitamin c - 49724

Vitamin C at 500 mg two times daily with or without meals in acutely hospitalized patients reduced mood disturbance and distress while 5000 IU of vitamin D had no effect. Vitamin C levels normalized while vitamin D levels remained deficient. Vitamin D may need a much larger loading dose, possibly 300,000 IU, to normalize levels in the acute care setting. [Am J Clin Nutr, 2013 July 24; [Epub ahead of print]. 49724 (9/2013)] Summary Interview PubMed
