Research Reports - Traumatic brain injury and diet

J Child Neurol. 2013 Aug;28(8):983-8

Greco T, Prins ML

Increasing attention is being paid to nutritional and metabolic management of
traumatic brain injury patients. The gross metabolic changes that occur after
injury have been found to be influenced by both macronutrients, that is, dietary
ratios of fat, carbohydrates, and protein, and micronutrients, for example,
vitamins and minerals. Alterations in diet and nutritional strategies have been
shown to decrease both morbidity and mortality after injury. Despite this
knowledge, defining optimal nutritional support following traumatic brain injury
continues to be an ongoing challenge.
