Nutritional Assessment and Vitamin Deficiencies in Patients with NETs Abstract #2147

Introduction: As a result of disease or related to its management, patients with neuroendocrine tumours may have altered gut or pancreatic function that can cause nutritional deficiencies.
Aim(s): This study evaluated whether nutritional status and nutritional deficiencies had been assessed in patients with NETs in South Wales.
Materials and methods: A retrospective study of 141 NET patients seen in Gastroenterology (n=74) and Endocrinology (n=67) clinics. Key parameters collected were: BMI, weight, B12/Folate, ferritin, albumin, vitamins A/D/E and presence of steatorrhoea. Evidence of treatment with vitamin or iron replacement and use of bile acid sequestrants or Creon was recorded.

#2772 Vitamin Supplementation and a Personalized Diet in Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors: The DIVIT Study
Introduction: Patients with neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are at risk for vitamin deficiencies and poor nutritional status due to excessive serotonin production, diarrhea, previous gastrointestinal surgery, and/or treatment with somatostatin analogues (SSA). Little knowledge exists about vitamin deficiency and how patients should be supported for the deficiencies they develop during their long-lasting disease.

#3054 Nutritional Status and Considerations for Patients Diagnosed with a Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumour: Nutrition in NETs Study
Introduction: Gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (GEP NET) can adversely affect nutritional status. Cross-sectional studies report up to 25% of GEP NET patients are malnourished and dietary change may be prevalent. Nevertheless, clinical guidelines lack advice on nutrition management.

#136 Prevalence, severity and clinical outcome of malnutrition in gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: Malnutrition is well-known to unfavorably influence clinical prognosis in patients (pts) with malignant diseases. However, in patients with neuroendocrine tumors (NET) prevalence and outcome of malnutrition are unknown although the gastroenteropancreatic system is most frequently involved.
