This study to assessed 47 cystic fibrosis (CF) patients assisted by a program of Home Enteral Nutrition. Anthropometric measurements included weight, height, triceps skinfold thickness, waist circunference and spirometry was also performed. Enzymes, nutritional and fat-soluble vitamin supplementations were recorded. There were no associations with enzymes and vitamin supplements between groups that did or did not have a nutritional deficit. Spirometry of patients without nutritional deficit, utilizing the European and American Consensus, showed that the ratio of FEV1 ≥ 80% was statistically greater than the ratio of FEV1<80% (p=0.0459 and 0.0230, respectively). ...
