Methods: Nutritional profile in hundred patients of compensated ALD-cirrhosis was studied for its relationship to amount and duration of alcohol intake. Anthropometric, clinical signs of nutritional deficiencies, dietary Navitoclax in vivo assessment (by 24 hour dietary recall method), hematological and biochemical parameters were used for nutritional assessment. Results: Clinical signs of nutritional deficiencies were found in all subjects. The mean value of body mass index (bmi), triceps fold thickness (TFT) and midarm circumference (MAC) were found to be decreased as compared to normal subjects. Vitamins b12 and serum folate levels were decreased in 16% and 52% cases respectively. Serum magnesium,
serum phosphorus and serum zinc levels were also lower than that found in normal population (in 48%, 40% and 40% cases respectively). Total calorie intake was found to be significantly decreased in these subjects. Nutritional deficiencies MI-503 were more pronounced in patients with increased amount and duration of alcohol. Conclusion: thus, nutritional
deficiencies are present even in compensated ald-cirrhotics and correlate with amount and duration of alcohol intake.

Methods: a follow up study was conducted on randomly selected hundred recently diagnosed adult (18-30 years) patients with celiac disease. An interview schedule/questionnaire was drafted to obtain information on various aspects such as availability of gluten free food products, facility to cook separate meals, gastrointestinal symptoms, anthropometric measurements, biochemical analysis, histopathological reports and dietary intake of subjects. Results: the mean age of presentation was 24.6 years. Out of 100 biopsy proven cases 65 were females and 35 were males. Most of the respondents (70%) were aware about the gluten free products. Ninety six percent of the patients were able to cook their meals separately. Majority of the patients presented with anemia (80%) and diarrhea (70%). Good improvement in hemoglobin levels and weight of adults was seen after 3 months of follow up on gluten free diet.
