Critically ill patients may see renal and glucose benefits from a calorie-restricted nutrition plan, according to a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine and presented at the American Thoracic Society's meeting. The study compared patients on a permissive underfeeding plan that provided 40% to 60% of their calorie requirements with patients getting target feeding that provided 70% to 100% of caloric requirements.
