DM: Parenteral Nutrition (2006)

Note: Relevant questions from the ADA Critical Illness Evidence Analysis Project are linked here to the Diabetes 1 & 2 evidence analysis project.

  • Monitoring and Evaluation
    What impact does nutrient composition of parenteral nutrition have on cost of medical care in critically ill diabetic patients?
    • Conclusion

      There is insufficient evidence to determine whether the nutrient composition of PN has an impact on cost of medical care in critically ill patients with diabetes.  Published trials evaluating this question were not found.
