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.

#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.

#2178 Nutritional Status and Considerations for Patients Diagnosed with a Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor: Preliminary Baseline Characteristics from the Nutrition in NETs Study
Introduction: Gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (GEP NET) cause various symptoms impacting on nutritional status and diet. Published data indicates up to 25% of GEP NET patients are malnourished, and dietary change is prevalent. Further research is required to guide nutrition recommendations.
