Subjective Global Assessment for Patients with Hepatic Cirrhosis, Egypt

Samar Abd El-Mohsen, Ashraf Magdy

Subjective global nutritional assessment (SGA) is a valid and useful clinical nutritional assessment tool for patients of various medical conditions such as renal and hepatic patients. The aim was to assess the nutritional status of patients with hepatic cirrhosis using subjective global assessment. A cross sectional study was carried out on 125 patients with hepatic cirrhosis. Data was collected for socio-demographic characteristics, determination of the degree of severity of liver disease by Child-Pugh score, laboratory investigations and nutritional assessment by using SGA score. Highest percent of patients (61.6 %) with hepatic cirrhosis had mild/moderate malnutrition, and 45.6 % had severe liver disease by Child-Pugh score and the highest percent of patients had anemia, low total lymphocytic count, and low albumin, high bilirubin and prolonged prothrombin time were detected in patients.
