The effects of nutritional interventions on growth beyond the first 2 years of life

A large body of evidence emphasizes the importance of nutritional interventions early in life for the prevention and treatment of malnutrition and stunting. However, several recent publications indicate that catch-up growth occurs even in the absence of interventions beyond infancy, and suggest an opportunity to promote catch-up growth beyond this early window of time (1, 2).A systematic review and meta-analysis by Roberts & Stein which was published on March 2017 (3), addressed this issue.…See More

Further insight on the role of gut microbiota in growth maintenance during chronic under-nutrition.

In mammals, growth during infancy and childhood is controlled by the activity of the growth-hormone (GH) - insulin-like growth factor–1 (IGF-1) axis, in which GH stimulates the liver and peripheral tissues to produce IGF-1 to promote systemic growth. Chronic under-nutrition results in GH resistance, and hence, in growth retardation and stunting. However, the mechanism linking between under-nutrition and GH resistance is not fully understood.A recent paper by Schwarzer et al1, published in…See More
