Sarcopenia: Don't Judge a Book by It's Cover Abstract #2806

Introduction: Sarcopenia is characterised by loss of muscle mass and function. We previously reported anthropometrical data for a range of NET diagnoses within 3 months of diagnosis. The majority of NET patients were overweight or obese, however reduced muscle function was observed in over half of patients regardless of BMI and other parameters.
Aim(s): To find out how anthropometrical measurements changed since diagnosis.
Materials and methods: Patients were assessed by a Dietitian using an amended Royal Free-Subjective Global Assessment (SGA). Factors impacting nutritional intake and losses were collected along with changes in body composition. Anthropometric measurements included: weight, height, BMI, HGS, mid upper arm circumference, and triceps skin-fold thickness. Mid arm muscle circumference (MAMC) was also calculated.

#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.

#3065 Intensive Personalized Program for Daily Living with Neuroendocrine Neoplasms as a Chronic Disease: Preliminary Results
Introduction: Introduction: Neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs) are increasingly viewed as chronic diseases as a result of more effective treatments and procedures. As with any life changing events, patient and family transition to a new “normal” requires attitudinal adjustments. The Intensive Personalized Program for Daily Living with Neuroendocrine Neoplasms is a pilot program transitioning patients and their primary familial carer to a new “normal”.

#2831 Immunohistochemical Profile of Digestive Neuroendocrine Neoplasms: A Retrospective Analysis in a Single Algerian Institution
Introduction: Neuroendocrine Noplasms (NEN) are rare tumours, but their incidence is clearly increasing in our country due to the improvement of diagnostic means, in particular the generalization of immunohistochemical techniques. The digestive location represents more than 70% of the cases. The anatomopathological study enables to classify the NEN in different prognostic grades according to the degree of differentiation, mitotic index and Ki67.
