Fast Facts: Infant Faltering Growth

Infantile growth has been described as a “mirror of health,” with its measurement being an important and non-invasive tool reflecting health and nutritional status of an infant as well as the the quality of life of a population. Understanding and identifying when growth is faltering as well as its optimal management is crucial for preventing short-term and longer-term adverse consequences for patients. Professor Atul Singhal, Profession Koen Joosten, Professor Koen Huysentruyt and Dr Rosan Meyer have developed a CME accredited e-learning course designed to provide healthcare providers with an overview of faltering growth in infants and children under 2 years of age. The practical tool covers the presentation, identification and management of faltering growth in infants and children under 2 years of age and on completion of the training HCPs will be able to: define faltering, catch-up, accelerated and normal growth. explain the consequences of faltering growth on patients and their communities identify faltering growth, accelerated growth, and catch-up growth from example growth charts explain the recommendations for management of faltering growth This expert e-learning tool is offered by Karger Publishers and has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (UEMS-EACCME®) with 1 European CME credit (ECMEC®).

Nutrition Essentials: Faltering Growth Animated Video

Faltering growth refers to a reduction in weight-for-age over a period of time, often indicative of underlying issues. It can be caused by disease-related factors such as decreased intake, increased nutritional requirements, or excessive losses, as well as non-disease-related factors like psychosocial and environmental influences. Chronic diseases like congenital heart disease, chronic lung disease, and inflammatory bowel disease commonly contribute to disease-related FG. Hospitalized children, particularly those in pediatric intensive care units, are at heightened risk of malnutrition. Short-term consequences of FG include impaired immune function and increased susceptibility to infections, while long-term impacts may include reduced cognitive development and increased risk of obesity. FG also poses a significant financial burden on healthcare systems, with prolonged hospital stays and higher medical costs associated with undernourished children. Nutritional management of FG requires a detailed understanding of the underlying conditions, and international guidelines provide recommendations for optimal management. Key considerations include ensuring appropriate intake of energy, protein, and micronutrients, as well as the use of prebiotics and long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids to support immune function and cognitive development. The booklet emphasizes the importance of screening, assessment, and diagnosis of FG, as well as the need for a multidisciplinary approach to nutritional support. Further research is needed to better understand the causes and management of FG and to implement effective interventions, especially in underprivileged populations.
