Welcome to the webpage of the clinical nutrition research study "Kostverkætlanin á B6" at the National Hospital of the Faroe Islands.
In 2013 a nutritional research study was initiated at a general medical ward at Landssjúkrahúsið – the National Hospital of Faroe Islands.
This is the first Faroese study to explore the prevalence of malnutrition in Faroe Islands. Internationally, studies have shown that the prevalence of disease related malnutrition is high; many patients do not meet individual nutritional requirements while hospitalized.
This study evaluates whether an improved food service including an increase in protein and energy density has any effect on nutritional status of hospitalized patients.
