Validating the mini nutritional assessment Anime webcam sex chat free text
Both modified versions were effective in predicting follow-up mortality risk.The relative mortality risk was about 7 times for those rated malnourished and 2·5 times for those rated at risk of malnutrition compared with those who were rated normal at baseline by the two modified versions.The contacted authors submitted original datasets that were merged into a single database.

A 10-year follow-up was conducted in 2010 with dates of death obtained from the Swedish death register.
Participants with a MNA score, indicating an increased risk for malnutrition, were more than twice as likely to die during the 10-year follow-up as participants whose MNA score indicated normal nutritional status.
Hence, MNA can predict mortality in a general, free-living, elderly female population.
Mini nutritional assessment (MNA) is the screening test for malnutrition in the elderly, recommended by the task force on nutrition and ageing of International Association of Gerontology and Geriatrics European region and International Academy of Nutrition and Aging Participants classified by MNA to be ‘at risk of malnutrition’ or ‘malnourished’ had a three-time higher risk to die during 3 years of follow-up than those classified to have a ‘normal nutritional status’.
