Answer

See the list below:

  • The main goal regarding diet, as it relates to patients with pseudomonal infections, is to provide adequate nutrition, prevent malnutrition, and avoid complications related to dietary delivery.

  • Patients with CF who require increased energy intake should receive a higher proportion of fat to nonprotein energy value. Avoid diets with increased amounts of carbohydrates because the increased carbon dioxide production causes difficulty in breathing and ventilation support.
