Parenteral nutrition is indicated when oral and/or enteral nutrition are insufficient or in the case of failure of the gut function. The reduction of phosphate is much more pronounced in respiratory alkalosis than in metabolic alkalosis of comparable severity [, RFS may occur regardless of energy restrictions if fluid balance is disregarded [, Particular attention should be paid to the sodium concentration of fluids/products given to patients at (very) high risk for RFS. ; Bethel, R.A.; Ansley, J.D. Refeeding Syndrome Definition and Background RS is historically described as a range of metabolic and electrolyte alterations occurring as a result of the reintroduction and/or increased provision of calories after a period of decreased or absent caloric intake. The authors declare no conflicts of interest. Education and increased awareness of the condition can help. ; Bliss, T.L. What is Known: • Refeeding is a central part of the treatment in AN and should be a multidisciplinary and collaborative enterprise, together with nutritional rehabilitation and psychological support, but there are no clear guidelines on the management of refeeding in clinical practice. People with the syndrome can recover if they receive treatment early. The resulting electrolyte imbalances can cause life-threatening complications such as arrhythmia, spasms, or tetany [. Marvin, V.A. The risk of RFS may be greater with enteral or parenteral feeding compared to oral intake, thus artificial nutrition should be started cautiously at a reduced caloric rate [.

Refeeding syndrome (RFS) is a potentially fatal shift in fluids and electrolytes that may occur in severely malnourished or starved patients when first re-introduced to feeding¹ either via oral, enteral or parenteral routes. The introduction of carbohydrates in the replenishment phase leads to a quick decrease in renal excretion of sodium and water [, Due to the lack of large randomized trials, the current literature confirms the clinical consequences but not the efficacy of measures used to prevent and treat RFS. The risk is high when a person has an extremely low body mass index. ; Tuttle, E.P., Jr. Schuetz, P.; Fehr, R.; Baechli, V.; Geiser, M.; Gomes, F.; Kutz, A.; Tribolet, P.; Bregenzer, T.; Hoess, C.; Pavlicek, V.; et al.

Terlevich, A.; Hearing, S.D. Anabolic processes are stimulated, leading to intracellular shifts of glucose, water, and electrolytes, and resulting in a potentially severe drop in serum micronutrient levels. In the light of the current scientific knowledge, it is very likely that there is a need for different intervention approaches adapted to the specific pathologies, e.g., anorexia nervosa. Refeeding problems have been recognised since the the liberation of starved communities under siege. • The management of refeeding is likely to change in different clinical situations • Prior to 2006 a more generous provision of energy was recommended (20kcal/kg) • Attitudes towards the NICE guidelines on RFS survey in UK: – 44% of doctors and 70% of dietitians followed … Death resulting from overzealous total parenteral nutrition: The refeeding syndrome revisited. ; Mehler, P.S.

The patients with RFS are often dehydrated and require correction of existing hydration deficits and replacement of abnormal fluid losses. Definition: Refeeding Syndrome (RFS) encompasses the clinical complications that occur as a result of fluid and electrolyte shifts during nutrition repletion of malnourished patients. In addition, the increased insulin level in the early phase of refeeding leads to sodium retention in the kidneys. Treatment involves switching to a gluten-free diet.

In the vulnerable phase (up to 10 days), intensive clinical monitoring of vital signs and hydration status, as well as analysis of laboratory parameters, is essential to detect early signs of RFS such as fluid overload and organ failure (mainly kidney) (, Electrocardiogram monitoring is recommended only during the first three days in patients at very high risk of RFS or affected by severe electrolyte imbalances prior to refeeding (K < 2.5 mmol/L, PO, Electrolyte substitution respectively supplementation should be initiated or reinforced in case of extracellular electrolyte levels dropping (, RFS may increase rates of morbidity and mortality in severely catabolic patients (, The first step in the management of RFS-related pathological conditions is to anticipate with preventive measures and closely monitor the at-risk patients. If, over time, the body continues to rely on reserves of fat and protein, this can change the balance of electrolytes. ; Sabel, A.L.

Pourhassan, M.; Cuvelier, I.; Gehrke, I.; Marburger, C.; Modreker, M.K. Optimal nutritional support is still controversial and some experts and scientists recommend faster increase in nutritional support to counteract harm associated with malnutrition. Levels of vitamin and electrolytes diminish as the body tries to adapt to starvation mode. A recent secondary analysis of the EFFORT trial showed that RFS has a significant impact on mortality and readmission rate [, Many other unresolved issues have not yet been clarified.

Refeeding syndrome (RFS) is the metabolic response to the switch from starvation to a fed state in the initial phase of nutritional therapy in patients who are severely malnourished or metabolically stressed due to severe illness. Acute respiratory alkalosis is for example the most common clinical situation in which hypophosphatemia should be expected in hospitalized patients. Keys, A.; Brožek, J.; Henschel, A.; Mickelsen, O.; Taylor, H.L. Hypophosphatemia may cause several clinical manifestations, such as rhabdomyolysis, hemolysis, respiratory failure, and musculoskeletal disorders.
