COVID and nutritional care in obese patients

 

ESPEN is pleased to announce a new paper in Clinical Nutrition on guidance for nutritional care of COVID-19 patients, focusing on the important high-risk group of persons with obesity. The paper is endorsed by the ESPEN Council and is now available for download. We hope that the document will contribute to further enhance the awareness on the key role of nutritional care and treatment in all COVID-19 patients, regardless of initial nutritional status, and including the increasingly relevant problem of long-term sequelae commonly defined as "long-COVID"
