Abstract

The use of oral dietary supplements was compared with dietary counseling in 13 malnourished patients (3 males, mean age 18.1 years) with cystic fibrosis. Energy intake and nutritional status were evaluated over 3 months. There was no significant change in energy intake or percent ideal body weight in either group.
