Presentation Title: Long Term Effects Of Medically Prescribed Diets on Growth and Body Composition in Children with Inborn Errors of Metabolism
Synopsis (2-3 sentences): This study documents longitudinal growth and body composition patterns in children with inborn errors of metabolism on protein modified diets. In particular it documents natural protein tolerance across a range of disorders, and describes the association between dietary intake and growth and body composition. It aims to define a single index called the Protein to Energy ratio that may be used as an additional clinical tool to address dietary quality.
