Post a reply: Maximum GoW and MUAC growth in SAM treatment

Use of en-net is subject to the Terms and Conditions.

Dear colleagues, I am working with a database for a CMAM programme that computes Gain of Weight (g/Kg/day) and Length of Stay. I would like to know if there were some recommendations regarding the maximum theoretical value for healthy GoW (excluding complications with development of Oedema). Usually, recommendations are between 5 and 15 g/kg/day and I would like if it was possible to fix a limit such as for example 20g/kg/day that would not be physically possible. Likewise, is there some literature regarding the "normal" MUAC increase? (ex: max: +15mm/1 week)? By advance, thank you very much Regards
