Dear experts
I would very much appreciate your inputs on this question:
I have male adults who are SAM (based on BMI or oedema).
They receive 5 sachets of Plumpynut and a simple meal per day.
Should they receive a high dose of vitamin A: yes/no and why?
Should they receive a dose of folic acid: yes/no and why?
Your (scientific) opinion is more than appreciated!
Thanks so much, Mija
